It is a pretty exciting time here hive – it is time to talk about our STDs!
Of course you know I mean Save the Dates, right?
Once Mr. Gazelle and I got engaged I immediately started thinking about the Save the Dates. I wanted something simple but something that was going to give our guests their first glimpse at our wedding. Our wedding will be a destination wedding for 81.667% of our guests so I wanted to play off of that theme.
How about post cards?
First I thought about purchasing a bunch of post cards in Vancouver, getting a custom stamp made with our save the date info and sending them out.

I wasn’t overly excited about that idea exactly so I thought it would be nice to personalize them a bit more. Like maybe with a picture of us? In Vancouver perhaps? With that in mind we decided to take a trip to Vancouver in October to have our engagement photos taken. I mentioned my plan to our photographer and asked if we could have a few pictures taken with some iconic Vancouver scenery in the background.

…but we had so many amazing photos to choose from that I wasn’t sure which photo to use!
Stay tuned for Part II to see how our Save the Dates started to come together!
