Darcey and Tara started Paperwink after working together at knock knock, one of my favorite funny shops to buy gifts at. What I love about Paperwink is that it takes smart graphic design, and puts it towards branding your wedding experience…from the invites, to the envelopes, to the stamps and labels. I know for my wedding I paid attention to all those little details, so having a company like this makes life a lot easier! The girls are also offering 15% off invitation suites when you order 4 or more pieces by April 1st…just mention Brooklyn Bride when ordering.

Recently a bride came into Urbanic for her Save the Dates and she put together this striking color combination of yellow and natural. I loved how earthy yet mod it came out and became fixated on this color scheme.
Your Save the Date series came at the perfect time for me! I’ve really enjoyed seeing all the creative ideas while we’ve been in the process of getting ours done.I really love our Save the Dates. I haven’t seen anything like them and I think they really reflect our classic, simple, fun loving approach to our wedding. I’ve been making all sorts of fun sentences on the fridge over the past week. I hope our guests enjoy them as much as I do! I ordered the custom word magnets from www.fridgedoor.com and they were so great to work with. I’m not sure they had ever received a request from a picky bride before, but they were patient and understanding and the final product was exactly what I was looking for.
I have some wonderful friends who spent hours helping me line our envelopes and were so great to deal with the fact that I wanted the point curved instead of easily using all straight edges. Brad’s sisters have beautiful handwriting and were gracious enough to spend hours last Thursday evening addressing the envelopes while I watched painting my nails and wishing I could write like that!
Today I went to the Post Office to buy stamps and didn’t like the .59 wedding stamp as it was yellow and my colors and Navy and Pink. I love the .42 stamp with the man running with the heart on his shoulders so I asked what I stamps they had to make up the difference. The woman behind the counter said “Oh no, you don’t want that on your wedding stationary, it’s a Ram!” A Ram?! I asked to see it and to my surprise it was Navy Blue! I said “I’ll take them, they’re perfect” and she looked at me like I was crazy! I think they look great together…much better than a yellow heart anyway.
As I sit here now, staring at them, knowing they’re going out the door tomorrow I feel excited and nervous! This is the first public proclamation of our wedding and the day guest list becomes ‘official’!! YAY!

I know, it’s past time! Much like Lindsay, I’m having trouble deciding on
my save the date and was wondering if you could help. I wanted to do one
Kissing because I thought it was weird for us to peer out of a box of
Sweethearts. Then the kissing one didn’t work out because you can’t identify
me. Do we need to go back to the photo booth? My mother said the whole idea
Looked too childish and informal (she never holds back).
Alyce, I love both of these, and don’t think you go wrong with either! If you really want the kissing one, then reshoot it, because your face should definitely be shown…you two are too cute!

Saw your posts and wanted to send you my STD. We created a small comic for our STD on Comic Life and printed them at Kinkos. We took some pictures in front of the Brooklyn Bridge and used some old photos. We sent them in 5×7 white vellum envelops. I was so happy with how they came out. When they arrived in your mail, you could see the bridge side clearly through the envelope.
