Wedding Wednesday: Updates.

Just a few updates today on the wedding planning..
-The save the dates are in! Yes, I kind of jumped the gun on ordering them, but just so you know, I'm not planning on sending them out until August. The "rule" is that you're supposed to send them out 6-9 months before the wedding. If the wedding is a destination wedding and/or you have a lot of out of towners, or around a major holiday, you're supposed to send them out closer to the 9 month mark to give everyone a chance to plan their trips. If my wedding wasn't the day before Easter (oops), I probably wouldn't have planned on sending them out until September because the majority of the guests live in Charleston. So, there is my reasoning for sending them out in August. :)
I ordered them so early because the website that I ordered them from, Wedding Paper Divas, was running a Memorial Day special and I wound up receiving a 20% discount! I was super impressed with this company regarding their customer service, fast shipping and quality of the product.

-I met with another florist last Friday that my mom wanted to insisted that I meet with.  They are a duo of sisters that has their own shop out of their house and has actually done a couple of friends' weddings. It's looking like they're in 1st place right now, especially since the florist I met with on May 17th still hasn't gotten my proposal to me. I understand that this is busy season, but then I see her playing on Pinterest and that really irks me.

  2. I would be annoyed if the girl was playing on Pinterest and hadn't gotten a quote back to me. There is no need for that at all. I know you can't wait to see your wedding dress! I love how you're so on top of things, ie. ordering your save the dates early. ;)

  3. You are so good to shop around for florists. I just picked one that had good reviews online and hired them on the spot. Luckily, they are pretty amazing. Glad you found your #1 choice as of now. And how exciting is it that your dress ships out this soon?!

  8. Hey,
    If you are getting your invitations from WeddingPaperDivas too, use your costco membership! We went to the Costco website searched invitations and was redirected to the WeddingPaperDivas website. I think we saved 30%. I think the discount works for other invitations too.
