See Ya...

In celebration of the six month countdown, the Save the Dates were mailed on Sunday night. We've been getting some nice compliments so far. I'm just happy that they're gone, I'm tired of looking at them. Here's a look at the final product.

While I was down for the count nursing that headache a few weeks ago, I managed to polish off the envelopes. I was tres gauche and used printed labels, BUT they were expensive Paper Source ones that match my invite design nicely. Applying the polka dot design was the most tedious process in the world. I cut four sizes of dots from Paper Source labels, then attached three dots to each address label. Getting all of the dots off of their backing was the biggest pain in the rear. Thankfully, I don't do any housework and had one long nail left on my left hand. (Ha, Ha.) I had to slide my nail between the sticker and the backing without bending the edges. I hope that this is the dumbest idea that I have throughout the entire wedding process.



I ended up using the replacement stamp for the return address instead of the embosser.

they look awesome! those dots on the front of the envelope are really cool- i am sure it was a pain to do but the effect is definitely cool and unique...

When the Save the Date arrived, I almost didn't open it. I thought, I need to keep it the way it is... PERFECT... But, then I thought... Ok, as long as she knows it's perfect, now I can open it...

Beautiful T!!!
