Mike and Kerry's Save The Date

Please DON'T MISS OUT on my first EVER Giveaway! Be sure to leave me a comment on yesterday's post to enter to win a handmade makeup bag (made by my mother) and a handcrafted pear soap favor from my bridal shower! Click here to enter!

I got a very special Save The Date in the mail last week!! It was for our friends, Mike and Kerry's wedding this coming September! Chris and I are both in the bridal party and to say I'm excited for this wedding would be an understatement.

Kerry made two different  postcards from WeddingPaperDivas.com. Wedding Paper Divas has a huge array of templates for all kinds of cards, invitations, stationary, etc. They let you draft projects and save them right to your account, which is something Kerry took complete advantage of. She tried out a bunch of different designs and said there were so many great ones to choose from, the hardest part was deciding which design she wanted! This was why she opted for two different postcard designs (Plus it was a great way to use two of the fantastic photos she had from their engagement session.)

On the back, she put a short description of how Mike and Kerry met which reads:

Michael and Kerry were introduced during their freshman year of college. Mike was playing football for Marist, and Kerry was at Adelphi beginning her education program. Eight months later, they began a devoted relationship across the miles. After six years of dating, Mike proposed to Kerry in their apartment on Christmas Eve. This fall, they will be married.

 

Aren't they the cutest?? I love the look of them, it sets the scene perfectly for their Fall barn wedding, they're classy, functional, and look great on our fridge! You are definitely going to be seeing a lot more of Kerry and Mike's wonderful wedding touches and events as we get closer!

Did/Will you send out Save-the-Dates?

I didn't want to vote on this poll because, again, such things didn't exist back in the day. If they did I was clueless. Everybody just called everybody (on rotary phones connected in the wall,no less!)and word just spread through the grapevine.But I do love Mike and Kerry's Save The Date cards.I really like the one with the chalkboards.

Thank you ladies! I think Save the Date cards are a great way to get people excited for your wedding. They are much more playful than formal invitations and give you the ability to capture the wedding style you intend on having for your big day!

Super cute idea! I am seeing more save the dates sent even for weddings that are not long-distance or have a lot of long-distance guests because it's just FUN to send them! We used Shutterfly to make ours, and it was awesome!
