Save Money on Calligraphy…

and buy a custom stamp.

I put it off for over a month and now the time has come to tackle the “Thank You” cards. But before I hand write my return address on each envelope I opted for a chic custom stamp by Rachel Carl and Co. (like the one shown above) to help sign, seal and deliver my letters of gratitude.

It’s no secret that I am obsessed with Etsy.com and of course that was the first place I looked when I decided to purchase a personalized stamp. For about $40 I found a design that I loved and I can not wait to start stamping…and thanking people for their generous gifts!

For each guests envelope I plan on printing each address myself with the help a free font that I found on a website. (check here, here, and here for samples and ideas) The fonts are easy to install and can be used for so many other wedding and event things.

As far as thank you cards, I plan on ordering from Wedding Paper Divas and I am leaning toward this design:

Happy Planning! xoxo

We have only nine short days until we tie the knot and everything is falling into place.

The wedding ceremony cards have just arrived.  I ordered from Wedding Paper Divas and highly suggest if you are looking for a simple ceremony program to check them out.  Once you pick a design and add in your text you will receive three proofs before they are printed and I must say the quality of the paper and presentation looks really good.  (I’ll post a picture soon!)  Here is the design I ordered. (I splurged on the pearl paper)  If you decide to order from the site, don’t forget to google a promo code.

Our wedding reception music list has been well thought out and sent to the DJ.  We will be dancing to Christina Perri’s “Thousand Years” for our first dance

And I would like the DJ to invite everyone on to the dance floor (because I hate being the center of attention) and after a minute or so fade into….Calvin Harris’ “Feel So Close” to get everyone in party mode.

Do you have any must have song selections you are planning on having at your reception? I would love to hear some suggestions!

Happy planning! xoxo
