Well it is only fitting that you design the save the dates yourself! They are so pretty, LOVE LOVE the font choice.

Icy @ Individual Chic said...

Love the "woo hoo!" ^_^. I made my wedding stationary as well and had a great time doing it. It's so not worth the money they charge you for it.

Just LOVE your blog design as well. Beautiful!

They are so pretty! Love the colors you chose:)
I bet you had a great time putting them together.
I was wondering - what paper did you use? Where did you find it? The edges of the white paper look so cute:)

D's Poetry said...

One more question - Is it 1st of August 2010 or is it 8th of January 2010?:)

Jennifer Ramos said...

D'S POETRY:
It is on Jan 8, 2010. I won't be explaining just yet what I used to make the cared, will write about it another day. :) Stay tuned!

Very very stylish!! I like the emblem around the date! Congratulations again!!

cupcake studio said...

These are so pretty! Love the lacy edge (and the woo-hoo!)

Alyssa said...

These are so pretty! I want to do something very similar for my own wedding. It adds a very personal touch and much cheaper than the other ones you'd buy.
and I think someone already mentioned this- the best part is definitely the "woo hoo!" :)

Debbie said...

One of my favorite words {woo hoo}! Your "save the date" invites are lovely!

Charlie said...

Jennifer, Congrats! I love the card and the colors you chose, it is all very stylish and elegant. I am thrilled for you and your fiancee! Although I am into my 16th year of wedded bliss I am actually looking forward to all the gorgeous wedding posts to come.

Eliana Tomás said...

I think they're very beautiful. Simple, yet elegant. I personally love a bright colour in a black and white background. This green represents to me freshness, nature, health... therefore a perfect colour for a wedding event. Just beautiful :)

one of my articles in the same colours palette.

Oh my word!
You did an outstanding job on those invitations :)

And, I know you must be so happy that you did it yourself and had such a wonderful turn out!

And, I love the color choice btw :)

HC said...

Love it! The green/white colours are so fresh, really nice.

Nicolette said...

Jennifer, the DIY project is simply gorgeous. You did a great job designing it.

Jennifer Ramos said...

CC: YES!
I've picked out my dress, but not a good idea to post here since my guy checks my blog off & on. :)))
Thanks!

Beautiful... and I love the 'woo hoo!'

I love the card, font and especially the personal touch with "woo hoo" at the end. I think so many brides feel that way but don't choose to express it in their invites and save the dates! So great.

Slices of Beauty... said...

Congrats, love the card.

RobbieLee at Chickiedee said...

I love the green and white together. It's very fresh and crisp.

Tuesday Tillman said...

Very nice, I usually don't go for green but I think you've done it so well, nice work! They look great :)

beSmart beGreen said...

so pretty. I made all of ours as well ...it just makes it even better when you do it yourself ...I think anyway.

Jro said...

congrats!! tastefully done!!

down and out chic said...

Yet said...

Well well well, look at you making DIY that look better than the real thang...The design is great and so are the colors

BrownLady said...

The Lil Bee said...

Woo Hoo is right, sista!

Amanda said...

I don't think I've said congratulations to you yet. Hopefully planning is not too stressful (I'm getting married in May, so I feel for you).

I like the green and black combo-the lettering makes it look so classic.

design cocktail said...
