Emily’s save the date

I wanted to forward you my fiance and I’s save-the-date that we mailed out for our upcoming wedding. We wanted to send out something somewhat unusual and different from the typical magnet, calendar, etc. Something that would reflect us and how we met. So we sent out two bar coasters per couple with our invitation design (that was inspired by my bouquet of button dahlia’s – pic also attached), and on the back of the coasters told the story of how we met at a funky little bar in the ‘Short North’ in Columbus, Ohio. The story on the back of the coasters went something like this:

Chris e-mailed me out of the blue one day.
Do you want to have drinks or something like that?
Something like that? Yeah, I’d like that.
We met on a Tuesday at a funky dive called Press Grill.
I’ll be the one in orange pants, I said.
He walked in and sat down across from me.
You must be Emily, he whispered with a smile.
I knew that night…
The conversation about our childhood, stories from our
lives that brought us to that moment.
Sweet, small talk. (over a mojito and a beer)
I knew that night…He was the one.

Anyway, wanted to share my save-the-date with you and possibly your readers.

Carrie’s save the date

I saw your post about unique Save the Dates. Our friend, Melissa, drew ours for us. My husband is a huge comic book fan, so we did a little nod to that for ours.
I thought they were so fun! It kinda backfired when we started getting children’s Spiderman plastic place settings as gifts though. HAHA!!

Emily’s save the date

I got some great submissions for save the dates and invites, so I’ll be sharing lots of those with you this week, including some of my favorites dresses from the Fall 2009 lines!

From Emily:

I have already gotten a ton of ideas for my wedding and I saw that you were taking cool Save the Dates. Well I hope you like mine! I got the idea from a blog I saw online and just had to do it. This pic is the front of the postcard, on the back we just had save the date for Emily and Jeremy yada yada the usual jargon.

Anthro fabric envelope


Look what Anthropologie sent me for my birthday! If you’re not an Anthro card carrier, definitely become one. I thought the fabric envelope would make a great little weekend project…maybe to hold a love note for your sweetie, or maybe it could hold a thank you note for your bridal party?

Martha at Walmart




So Chad and I were in Louisiana this weekend for his dad’s surprise birthday party, and every time we head down there I have to stop by at Walmart…especially this time so I could see for myself the new Martha Stewart line. Now I haven’t stopped in at Michael’s in a while so I’m not sure that these designs are totally exclusive to Walmart, but they were all new to me, so I bought a ton, including that scrapbook at the bottom….its small and colorful, perfect for kids [kiddie table anyone?], but even more perfect for me! I’ll probably throw in some random wedding photos and memorabilia in mine.
