Save the Dates Are Here!

After weeks of deciding what I wanted for our save the dates, bridesmaid Joey and I finally came up with the final design!

Mister Chick and I decided to be green and email everyone the STD. We did print a couple of copies for our relatives who are not internet connected. Here is the back of the STD for the snail mail version:

We were inspired initially by this STD:

Since Mr. Chick and I have such distinctive (and different) shoe styles, I decided to incorporate that into our STD. Anyone who knows Mr. Chick knows that his staple of owning at least twenty pairs of Adidas flip flops at all times is part of his charm!

The back image was inspired by this photograph:

There is a very helpful website called Vector4Free where you can download vector images for free. If anyone is looking for free fonts, visit dafont. They have tons and tons of free fonts! I decided to do the airmail border because it fits in with the theme of destination wedding. Credit also need to be given to Le Love Image Blog for the “You Me Oui” phrase!

Did you create your own save the dates? What were your inspirations?

Next post: stamps!
