Save the (Birth) Date!

Ah! The stress is setting in! Well, has been for a while now really. So many last minute details and things to be taken care within the next 23 days before the Big One is here. I apologize that I haven’t been blogging much but I’ve just been so busy. The programs are nearly finished and will hopefully be under wraps tonight. We completed the reception seating chart in record timing over the weekend… it only took about 30 minutes! Currently I’m working on creating the escort cards by day, and creating our reception centerpiece table kits by night. Recently I ordered the napkins from the Get Married shop for our signature cocktail drink and I can’t wait to see them in person! I loved all the customization options on the Get Married site, and the price was unbeatable at just $19.50 for 100.

Last Saturday I got to enjoy my first bachelorette party with my girlfriends here in Tampa (photo below), and in just a few weeks I’ll be driving to St. Louis to celebrate a second bachelorette party with all of my bridesmaids and Midwest girlfriends. Things are getting down to the wire and I feel like everything is happening so quickly! I’m doing my best to remain calm and stress free, but I’m really looking forward to that honeymoon cruise…
The shirt they got me from Victoria’s Secret was SO cute!
Hard to read in this photo, but it says “Kiss the Bride”.

Today I thought I’d share this adorable and creative idea I found from Martha Stewart Weddings. This bride and groom put a calendar next to their guest book at the ceremony so each guest could record their birthday for the couple to always have record of:

Isn’t that incredibly smart, yet simple? I’m thinking about doing it too! What do you think? Have you ever heard of this idea or would you consider doing it?

  1. That is such an awesome way to collect all of your guests' birthdays! We already have a guest book, but I love this idea.
