@goingtotherooftopoflove:  I dont have a pic of my STDs but they did not match my invitations at all.  My invitations were very traditional.

Back of Save the Date:@goingtotherooftopoflove:  Your save the dates look wonderful- congratulations!  Wedding planning is such a fun blessing!

Our save the dates and invitations don’t match, but they coordinate.  Obviously, the pink lines are just there to cross out personal information. Our save the dates were printed on a shimmer paper. Our invitations will arrive in a box wrapped in three sheets of tulle, as they feature a real dried orchid flower. Our wedding invitations are being shipped this upcoming Tuesday, and I feel so blessed and excited!

Our STD was actually a video, but we sent it out on USB drives with our wedding “logo” on them!  We then used the same element on our invitations, as well as various other places throughout the wedding.  🙂

Heck yeah, it’s so fun to show off your pretties. Smile

These are ours. They don’t match, and I couldn’t care less. I feel like Save the Dates are a place where you can be more fun and casual, and you don’t necessarily have to match everything else. A good friend designed them for us, and I had them printed at a local printer. I LOVE the way they turned out.

The invitations are from Invitations by Dawn. We chose their thickest paper, and it’s so wonderfully creamy and luxurious. Their turnaround time was fast, too.

Here’s our save the dates! The invites match and fit in with our “lovebirds” theme!

Ours match thematically since they both feature starfish but the STDs are more casual while the invitations are more traditional.

Mine will match, got the save the dats off Etsy and will get the matching invites from the same seller.

Not my invites, but pics from the Etsy store:

Save the Date, but the stamps will be starfish and shells like the invite:

Invite, but the pocketfold will be turquoise like the save the date:

@FLBlonde93:  Thanks! 🙂

@goingtotherooftopoflove:  Our wedding videographers shot footage of us in our home, at some of our favorite places, and at our wedding venue, then put it all together in a short video set to music.  It was great because it gave our guests a chance to get a feeling for who we are together, and it was a good way for more distant relatives on both our sides to get to know who this person is we’re marrying! 

@lolita39:  Thank you!

Ours matched, but I designed them that way. They were all backed with a grey background with white polka dots.
