{save the dates}

Last weekend we sent out our save the dates!  Anytime we get to check something big off of the wedding checklist, I feel extremely accomplished.  After our engagement photo session, I had a very good idea of what I wanted to the save the date cards to look like.  Chris and I designed these together and got them printed at a local printer in downtown LA.  The envelopes are from Paper Source and come in a variety of colors and do not require any extra postage despite the weird size!  I have been really loving the look of kraft paper ever since we used it for the envelopes when making our engagement party invites. This time around we used full sticker sheet kraft paper for the envelope address wraps.  Label outfitters makes sticker kraft labels in a variety of sizes available here.


  1. LOVE! damn... you are on top of this wedding stuff! ok. you inspired me to start thinking of our save the dates... today.

  2. These are darling! The labels are similar to what I'm thinking for ours, too. What local printer did you use?

    Cheers to Palm Springs weddings! We're getting married out there next October =)

  3. Hi Shannyn-

    The envelope wraps we printed and cut ourselves. The save the date card we designed ourselves but we had printed in downtown LA at Columbia Printing on wilshire. They did a great job and it only took them hour to complete it after they showed us a proof! I highly recommend them!


  4. Congrats! That is my birthday so it is already a glorious day but will be even more so now! So exciting, I am sure it will be over the top fabulous.
