I'm not ashamed to admit that I spent way more time looking for the perfect
wedding stationery than I did looking for the perfect wedding dress.
There are millions of details that go into planning a wedding, but when I set out on my search for my "Save the Date" cards, I was surprised by my growing desire to find the perfect wedding stationery. After pouring through refrigerator magnets, photo booth pics, messages in bottles and much, much more, I eventually selected a classic, textured ecru notecard customized in my primary wedding color (navy blue) and appropriately titled, "Beach Flowers" by Wedding Paper Divas. It was a tough decision to make, mostly because I didn't want to give up my legitimate excuse to spend hours looking at paper online, customizing dozens of cards using mine and my fiance's names, destination wedding date, and beach location, during all hours of the day.
After staring at our names in a variety of font styles, sizes and colors for a solid month, I realized that the best part about clicking "Purchase" was that the Save the Date cards were just the beginning of my paper and printing needs as a newly engaged woman. I could still eagerly anticipate selecting the perfect formal invitation that would reflect my personal taste (simple and elegant), while also revealing the theme (nautical/destination), venue (beach in the Mexican Riviera), attire (cocktail casual) and whatever else I could possibly want to communicate to our potential wedding guest.
My wedding invitations are done and out the door now, but I'm starting this blog with the hopes that I may continue to indulge myself in beautiful wedding stationery, while also helping other brides document this special time in their own lives. A Paper Proposal helps the stylish bride capture her every moment of bliss on paper; from the time he drops down on one knee and slips the ring on her finger, to the moment she says, "I do" (along with the "Thank You" cards, of course).
