{wedding} Save-the-date "sneak peek"!

We don't want to reveal all of our fun little surprises for our wedding too far in advance, but since we are in the process of handing out/mailing our save-the-dates, we decided to go ahead a publish a little sneak peek!

But first: Some inspiration.

I have browsed through wedding blogs for MONTHS looking for any and every idea I could find that fit our style. We have gone back and forth on our invitation/save-the-date ideas because we definitely wanted to create something that was uniquely ours, and very special.

Here are a couple of the influences:

This idea actually has the full DIY instructions... we tweaked them.

I've loved so many of the ideas that I've found on Green Wedding Shoes. I love this site! This next idea is no exception!

I just mentioned to my fiance yesterday that I am so thankful that he wants to be so involved in planning our wedding. He has very much influenced (and by influenced I mean that he has pretty much single-handedly done) all of our printed wedding material. He has been so patient with me showing him idea after idea, and layout after layout. At last we have a final, finished product.

Well, here is a peek! You will have to wait a while longer to see the whole thing!


  1. It's so lovely to hear that our 'save the dates' have provided inspiration - yours look gorgeous and there's only a tiny snippet of them so far, can't wait to see them :)

  2. Charlie, Thank you for your comment! Yours is one of the few bookmarked sites that I visit every day. I have gotten so much inspiration from your blog. You will more than likely see your name in my posts a few times more! :)
    I can't wait to post the full photos of the save the dates! I need to practice some self control until I at least have them all in the mail. :)

  3. This just looks so awesome! I knew your invitations ad paper details would be awesome! I just wish I could be there on your beautiful day!
