Save the Date Stress? Part 2

Ok, so in Part 1, the drama ensued. Thankfully, we were able to get ourselves out of the address-label weeds and work out a system.

Now, I’ll show you what these bad boys looked like!

Here is our little setup: my trusty google doc spreadsheet with addresses (yes, they are color coded in blue for Justin’s guests, and pink for mine…), the magnets, glue dots, the cards and envelopes (clearly), and the ink pad/stamp.

I printed the envelopes while Justin attached a glue dot to the back of the magnet and placed it inside the card.

I painstakingly placed each adorable little bird stamp in the left corner of the address. I broke down and decided to put the custom stamp on hold for the moment, and when I went to Michael’s one day…this bird stamp was waiting there for me!

I may have had a glass of wine or two during the process…

And…here you have it folks! A little peek at the finished product…I’m so glad that they are complete!

The next day, Justin and I headed to the post office to drop them off…so sad (yet relieved) to see them go!

Gotta love the awkward blue trash can in the picture...

See ya, Save the Date's...

Were you relieved when you got your Save the Date’s out?


  1. Woohoo! They look great :) I think I'll be more relieved when I get our invitations out the door.

  2. They look great! Bet you were glad to get them out! We did e-save the dates so I think we'll go through this for the formal invitation!

  3. They came out so cute! We are currently working on ours!

  4. Love 'em Katie! I also love the font you used for the envelopes :)

  5. Those are so great, and you're so adorable! :)

  6. Awww I love them!!!! I wish Josh had taken pics like that of me but I think we just wanted them in the mailbox and out of our hands. Can't wait to see how your invitations look (yep, better start thinking about those!)

  7. LOL you are too cute Katie!!!! The STDs came out FANTASTICCCCCC!!!!!! I thought the bird was already on the envelope when you bought it... like, it was PERFECTLY stamped. BRAVO!
