almost paradise

the big day is less than 9 months away. eek!
the good news is, i’ve been slooowly gathering the thoughtful bits and pieces required to put together our very d-i-y little beach wedding. 
one of these bits are the vintage postcards we are using for our silly save the dates. since the celebration is requiring our small entourage to hop on a plane to paradise, we wanted to inspire them and get them jazzed for their tropical getaway. and when i stumbled upon this fantastic vintage postcard save the date on ruffled, i couldn’t help myself and promptly purchased a custom stamp, vintage postage stamps and an array of vintage postcards of our own.
we’ll be sending out these beauties later this month and i don’t want to ruin the surprise, but i cross my heart that i will post them soon 🙂
this is your d-i-y bride…signing off!
