Save the Dates

January-April, my and Tres’ lives are non-stop. We literally travel almost every weekend, so planning a wedding has been difficult lately. To be honest, I haven’t even thought about our wedding in awhile. I feel so behind on everything, but it will just have to wait until May. EVERYTHING ALWAYS has to wait until May with us! The last month has been a busy one, but the next month will be an even busier one… just the typical work travel and occasional fun travel. In the last few weeks, we have been to Orlando, we just got back from Palm Springs this week, we will be heading to Knoxville this weekend for the Easter holiday, the week after we will be going to Destin, and the week after that, it’s back to Orlando! Some of it is for fun, but most of it is for work. That’s just a little peak into our lives currently… you don’t even want to hear the previous schedules of January-March! I am not complaining though… it’s nice to not spend all of our weekends in the same city. But I’m telling you, when May rolls around, we couldn’t be happier with our Memphis weekends!

Ok, so on to what this post is really about… SAVE THE DATES! Somehow with our busy schedules, we managed to get our Save the Dates out a couple of weeks ago – and yes, I am just now finding the time to blog about it!

So, the goal for the Save the Dates was the classic scheme of our wedding: unique, untraditional, and “oh-so-southern!” So I decided to go with southern-vintage handkerchiefs, and they turned out better than I ever expected! We have to give all the credit to Tres’ best man, JG, who screen-printed them for us… thanks JG!!! The most difficult part was deciding how I was going to mail them... not to mention what size envelope to get! I finally decided folding them and tying a pretty ribbon around them worked best! Above are the images of each of the three hankies once I folded them. Below, are more pictures of the beauties - before folding!
