Vintage Postcard Save the Dates


I've loved the idea of using vintage postcards as wedding stationery for awhile (you can actually find my own attempt to make some for our wedding right here). So when I saw these Save the Date's from Lion in the Sun, I had to share them with all of you! It would be such a personal touch to find or recreate a postcard from your venue, or even just the city you're being married, in to utilize as wedding stationery.

Real Wedding: Asheville, North Carolina


Erin and Jason met while working on a congressional campaign, and were married in a rustic outdoor ceremony in Asheville, NC. Erin's gorgeous pendant above belonged to her Grandmother - isn't it lovely? All of the florals (and even the adorable cake) had a wildflower vibe and of course I really love their choice of color palette!

Real Wedding: Sundance, Utah


Everything about Brittany & Rex's outdoor Sundance wedding is so beautiful - from the scenery to the understated decor, and those gorgeous lanterns! I love that the couple chose to honor the natural color palette of their surroundings and then lit the reception so beautifully. And how about that cake? I realized as I was typing this that part of the reason I love it so much is because it looks pretty similar to our wedding cake! The ceremony and reception were both held at the gorgeous Sundance Resort, and Brody Dezember is responsible for the lovely photography.

Real Wedding: Del Mar, California


It's officially Fall (Does it feel like where you are? Because it certainly doesn't here)! I was excited when Sara France sent along Reiley and Scott's lovely outdoor wedding, because it is the perfect seasonal inspiration. They opted for an autumnal color palette of red and orange, and held both the ceremony and reception outdoors. Vintage suitcases and postcards served as a focal point of the reception and were also used as escort cards. I love the glass vessels holding notes for the couple, and the chocolate tiered cake looks delicious!
