TheKnot.com was user friendly and was a great web source to post our engagement story, wedding details, etc..
Black and gold with some whites and pinks
One of my BFFs, Jess, got me this awesome tool to plan EVERYTHING! I joked with her that it was so good that it even gave me anxiety since I’m already a list kinda gal- I make lists for my lists, so this ‘Book of Lists’ ensured that nothing was left undone.
Instead of mailing out paper goods, Adam and I opted to tell our loved ones about our engagement via email. Since Adam is super tech savvy, he was able to copy a template online to import pictures taken from our engagement photoshoot in Paris.
The engagement party invitation:
My mother-in-law found the perfect invitation for our engagement party from Wedding Paper Divas. It was black and gold with fun, bubbly writing to go with the feel of the event.
The bridal shower invitation:
To continue with the gold theme, we chose to add in a little color to the mix. My mom and I found a feminine, elegant card on Wedding Paper Divas with pink and gold accents.
The wedding invitation:
As I looked through different wedding invitations, I knew I wanted ours to be traditional with a modern feel.
To utilize Adam’s tech savvy skills, we decided to DIY our wedding thank you cards. We found a postcard template at Office Max and used one of Adam’s online programs to insert 6 pictures of us from the wedding and personalized messages on the back since I am not fond of my handwriting.
