The future hubby and I are sending out our Save the Dates in a matter of days.  A teensy weensy bit later than I had hoped, but still within the proper limits set by those masters and mistresses of industry.  Sorry… can’t reveal the final product yet – we want it to be a surprise to our guests!

But here’s the beauty part – throughout our journey to find that perfect Save the Date card that was also within budget (a not so tough task in this day and age!), we… okay I’m just going to say “I” from now on today, because I don’t want to give any of you dear readers false hope about the level of participation you can expect from your significant others.  Sure, he has shown interest, and he certainly has opinions on the occasional detail, but really, he’s a guy at the end of the day.  He’d rather just chill with me… in silence… than debate the pros and cons of printing on linen vs. 80# card stock.  And I like it that way.  The great thing is, he helps me in exactly the way I need to be helped; when my indecisiveness becomes debilitating, he makes a choice within 30 seconds.  I envy this skill… I wonder, can it be learned?

Back to that beauty part I mentioned…

In my search for just the right Save the Date, I came across myriad colors, shapes, textures and designs, all of which made me wish we could get married a hundred times over, complete with a different invitation suite for each occasion.  Since that’s not going to happen, the next best thing is to share my finds with you guys!  Hope you like today’s Fab Finds: Paper ‘n’ Postage Edition!

First, more details from Cheree Berry’s invitation suite which I found over at The Bride’s Guide

The postage I am using for my save the dates (don’t you love?)…

One thing I’m doing – and I HIGHLY suggest, if you’re looking for a way to keep costs down but adore the superior look of high quality stationery – is using a custom made address stamp on my save the dates, and quite possibly my RSVP envelopes.  These custom stamps, from Paperwink, are among my favorites…

I really love the look of printed hankies.  So delicate and special.

A wax seal is a terrific way to seal your envelopes.  I’m still searching for that perfect seal, myself, and when I saw this, I felt that much more driven to make it happen for my wedding.  And, by the way, the photographer who took these shots, Max Wanger, is a fab find for today, as well!  He is golden.  Why oh why do I keep finding fab photogs in CALIFORNIA?!!  I just LOVE that sunkissed, misty look.  So dreamy and whimsical.
