"i do" wednesday.

with the wedding 8 months away
i thought i'd start sharing a bit more of the wedding planning with you all.
because i know that's what you all want to read about!!!
other than one recent problem with the ceremony
the overall process has been really fun and stress-free. 

we took pictures for our save the dates over the weekend
and i can't wait to see the finished product!
my brother was the one who took the pictures
and he did an amazing job!
(we opted to forgo a professional engagement session with our photographer
and instead we're going to tack on additional hours to our wedding day)


we went to bears den overlook,
which is where the boy and i hiked on the morning of our engagement.
it holds a special place in our hearts.
snow still lingered on the trees and ground from the storm two days prior
which added a lovely touch to our surroundings. 
we also went early enough so that we were the only ones there
which made it wayyyyy less awkward.

our save the dates will be postcards
and i hope to get them out next month.
some say this is too early 
but i tell them they don't know anything.
the majority of my family will be traveling from NJ
and i want them to have as much time as possible to plan for the trip.

here are some of my favorite
save the date postcards
on pinterest.








if married, how early did you send out your save the dates?
what were they like?!

That's definitely not too early. The point of a save the date is to send it out early, I think. My brother almost missed a wedding this June (by booking that weekend w another event) because the STD's haven't been sent out yet!!

I can't wait to see yours!!!!

I don't think you need to follow any rules on when to send everything out. We skipped Save the Dates and sent out our invitations early. Since we're going to Mexico, I wanted to make sure that everyone had enough time to plan a trip out of the country!

We used Wedding Paper Divas and I LOVED how ours turned out! The quality was great & so was the price! I've also heard that Minted is good for Save the Date postcards - we used them for our Christmas postcards & they were great, too!

I can't wait to see them! We did postcards too :) We sent our save-the-dates out almost 10 months before - but planning a destination wedding is a little different. People really have to make plans to come to Mexico, so we wanted to make sure everyone had it nailed down. Have fun with this! I'm glad it hasn't been stressful because it shouldn't be! Everything will be just great! (to be honest, the ONE thing that really bugged me on my wedding day was something I could have never planned for, never anticipated, and would have never stressed about - so nothing is worth worrying about!)

Ive never been married, but i can say as a guest of many weddings, the earlier the better!! it isn't just useful for planning to go to the wedding, but for planning other trips too. We travel a lot and it is hard to plan trips when you don't know when the weddings are going to be.

Ooh, your Pinterest favorites are really cute. I'm excited to see how yours turn out!

We didn't do STD's because our engagement was 6 short months, so they weren't necessary. I think sending them out ASAP is a good idea though :)
