Lately planning for our wedding has slowed down a bit. A lot has been booked, so we're happily ahead of schedule, which is nice. I've had people ask how the wedding plans are going so far, with an unintentional "It must be so much work" look, but it's been pretty great so far! I think if you both know what you want and if you start planning early, it's actually really enjoyable. As it should be! We hit a bit of an issue with the number of people on our guest list... a typical problem for many i'm sure, but it's all been worked out and now we just wait till the new year before having to really do anything else. It hit me yesterday though, that soon it will be 2012. Rick and I got engaged this past May and I just can't believe how time has flown by! I'm so glad i've been documenting the process here on the blog.
With that said, there is one thing I do need to start working on – our save-the-date cards. Being a graphic designer I think this part, the stationery, is practically harder than finding the dress. I've been going back and forth with a lot of ideas... Do I want to incorporate colour? Should I go with a more detailed, "flourishy" design or keep it simple? What paper should I use? What kind of envelopes? What fonts? etc... etc... the list goes on. The only I do know for sure is that the set will be letterpress printed. I think because I'm a designer that I think people will expect something spectacular, which is probably unnecessary pressure to put on myself. Simple and classic is my thing, and I think if I just stick to what I love, I hope i'll be able to figure out the rest. Now I just need to sit down and actually do it... yikes.
