Today’s post is part of an ongoing Wedding Wednesday Series. My chance to ramble on about non-running, wedding related stuff.
I haven’t really had too many “bridzilla-y” moments yet. At least I like to think I have not. I did come close, and it had to with Save The Dates.
SAVE.THE.DATES. I know, crazy right?
With such a short time to plan all the intricate details of a wedding, when half of our families live far far away, every detail is important. And it’s easy to get a little crazy about anything and everything.
So Save The Dates have been on my mind since January 1st.
Yes, you read that right. I was engaged for less than 24 hours and I was already worried about how we would let our out-of-town guests know about our wonderful day.
Come New Year’s day I sat perusing the world-wide web looking for Save The Date ideas and came across one that boggled my mind. It was simply ah.maz.ing. But when I finally received a response on the price per card I was floored. It was $5.00-6.00 per card.
I’m all about informing the fam on what’s up, but sorry fam, $5.00 per card is better spent on the alcohol budget. Or better yet, the photo booth. 😉
So I quickly dismissed the idea and went on to scope out ideas on etsy, and came across this one.
What I liked about it was, the fact that they could be done for $1.00 each, and the fact that they went along with my photobooth theme. As I will be having a fun photobooth at my reception.
So needless to say, I was stoked and excited and already in the mindset to get these babies going.
Then, nearly one week later I received a beautiful Save The Date in the mail from a couple of my best friends, who happen to be getting married just a month before us.
My jaw dropped to the floor when I pulled out their PhotoBooth Style Save the Date. At first I was upset, then I was laughing hysterically. Seriously?
What I love about this, is that these friends are two of my best friends in the whole world. And honestly, I couldn’t be anything but happy for them. And great minds think alike, right?! 🙂
My mother reassured me over a bridzilla-y phone call that all would be okay. As right then and there my happy attitude was back, and we were now on a mission to figure how to make the original save the dates without selling my future first-born.
So with a little planning and help from my friend Amy over at GreenSky Graphics (she’s the one who did my awesome blog header), I was back on track for Save The Dates and even well on my way with the Invitations.
All was well in brideland again. As the original save the dates were what I really really wanted in the first place. 🙂
Since I’m a sucker for suspense and due to the mere fact our Save The Date is still in the designing process, you will just have to wait until the Save The Date Assembly Party to see pics. Because these lovelies are going need my entourage plus some to put together.
Yup. I surely don’t know how to keep it simple. But in a way…these are going to be pretty DIY (do it yourself) and pretty awesome!
So the Save the Date Fiasco, was not really a fiasco at all, but an opportunity to get creative and use my resources.
For all you Brides out there, did your inner bridezilla ever strike? Was it over something silly? Just curious! 🙂
