Our Save the Dates

Enough of our guests have now received their Save the Dates, so I'm excited to be able to reveal them to you all! First, a little backstory and context about my fiancé, Dan, and I. Dan and I met and began dating in high school. While we had been going to school together for years, we first really noticed each other during our junior year high school musical "Bye Bye Birdie". Dan played the adorable Hugo and I was a featured dancer in the chorus.

The photo in our Save the Date is a picture from the musical's finale. I love the period of time that it captures--we were just realizing that we had met someone special. And it almost looks like the entire cast is celebrating that!

We decided to go with postcards that we had printed with Zazzle. Zazzle worked out fantastically because you can print small numbers at a time. Before ordering enough for our guests, I ordered one each of a few different color combinations and picked out the one I liked best in print. I ended up printing labels in a color to make it feel like part of the piece and then I could use fonts that matched the rest of the card.

I did the design myself. The script font is one I had picked out a while back as our perfect wedding font (I had been looking everywhere for that font). So it was just a matter of adding fun and colorful touches from there. It was also fun to tie in both the musical and high school "themes".

We're starting to think about the formal invites now and, if doing these were any indication, it's going to be fun!
