Save Our Date

I hope you had a Happy Easter, I stuffed my face with way too many Starburst jellybeans and promptly fell asleep for 3 hours.

I showed you the pictures we took for our save the dates here, here, & here and now it seems that they have reached everyone so it's time for their unveiling.*
(PS So much for anonymity, I like our save the dates too much to cover parts up.
Please don't stalk us too much)

When our guests go to their mailboxes they will see this.
I printed the address labels off and cut them out with a circle hole puncher, ran them through my Xyron machine and stuck them to the vellum envelopes. I thought the King & Queen stamps were a perfect match for the fun theme of our save the dates.

I designed the postcard and ordered them from VistaPrint, Jus spent many hours cutting out confetti from patterened paper we got on sale at Michaels.

Our save the dates were such a labor of love, it was a huge relief to get them out and we've heard great things back from our guests.
Actually, the thing I keep hearing is, "how are you going to top this for the invites?" And that's my question exactly.

*I know that this isn't my wedding blog but I feel like you all are my friends and I want to share parts of our wedding with you. The other day I said to Jus, "Wouldn't it be funny if we sent a save the date to all of my blog friends?" I'm also thinking of including a "Weekend Wedding" series on Adventures in Love & Happiness so you can tag along on our journey and the bloggy isn't totally silent on the weekends.

PS I played around with the layout of this little bloggity last night and added some pages...what do you think?
