Slowly but surely the Disney Wedding planning is underway! While there is a lot of uncertainty of what is ahead due to COVID we are moving forward with planning for May 2021 + hoping for the best (we are open to the possibility of postponing depending on the stipulations in place etc for overall safety + the health of our guests). So that means step one after securing our date was designing our Save The Dates which of course had to be Disney themed!
We worked with Themes Come True, the only paper goods company that has the official Disney license to create whatever you dream of! They are so fun to work with and have so many Disney Weddings under their belt to showcase examples from and everything you create is truly your own. That is one of the things I love the most. Our Save The Dates are unique to us and each detail was curating by us and not something easily copy and pasted from someone else’s design making it that much more special.
The first step of the process was reviewing examples of ones they have created in the past to gather inspo from. Right away I knew I HAD to have the Save The Dates be Mickey Mouse shaped. After knowing I definitely wanted a Mickey shaped Save The Date we then had to decide on color schemes. So I knew I wanted to have a glitter border and then a shimmer paper to better see the text and artwork for the actual Save The Date.
We looked at a few variations of colors and then eded up with a white ivory paper and gold glitter border! We also decided to to add a magnet to the back to make it convenient and easy to keep on hand leading up to the wedding.
Here’s some examples of if we just did on straight glitter which I found a little hard to read. That’s how we decided on glitter border and shimmer paper. After deciding on colors we then worked on the copy for the Save The Dates and I also knew I wanted to have a pretty Disney illustration as well.
Since Themes Come True is able to use Disney artwork etc I was able to look at some of their most popular illustrations for us to add to our Save The Dates.
We chose the Mickey and Minnie illustration with Mickey and Minnie holding each other on the bottom row and I wanted it to look like they were viewing a fireworks show so we added accents of fireworks on the shimmer paper as well.
After designing the actual Save The Date it was time to design the envelopes! There was inspo we pulled from and one of the things I totally fell in love with instantly was the Mickey glitter seals. I knew our guests would love getting a little Disney magic in the mail and that the glitter Mickey on the back would let you right away know who the Save The Date was from and what was inside!
I loved the design of these envelopes which are both ivory shimmer envelopes with Mickey Seals. We went with a white envelope just to lower some costs but we did a custom Disney stamp with the Mickey and Minnie looking at the fireworks artwork! How cool is that, you can get custom postage that is Disney themed?!
Let us know what you think of our Save The Dates!

Lately I’ve been spending a lot of time on TikTok building up a fun + supportive community there along with sharing some current happenings in my life + also sharing some tips + tricks I’ve learned over the years. One of the many questions I’ve been asked over on TikTok + also on Instagram is how I Build Up My Confidence so I figured I would make a post about it since it’s a common issue everyone struggles with every now + again, even me!
KNOW YOUR STRENGTHS
No one is perfect and when it comes to building confidence sometimes you see your imperfections over your strengths and that is something that is key to tackle when trying to build your confidence. Make a list of the things you are great at from being a good friend, to having nice style, to being a hard workers…when you know your strengths it’s a lot easier to feel strength in being yourself + in turn being confident!
DO THINGS THAT BRING OUT THE BEST IN YOU
Something that’s really helped me build my confidence up over the years is to embrace things that bring out my strengths. For me that is creating fun colorful content which I enjoy doing, working hard on my career where I make my clients happy by providing them great results + being a good friend and partner to my fiance and besties.
SURROUND YOURSELF WITH PEOPLE THAT LIFT YOU UP
I am pretty independent but even when I feel strong on my own sometimes if I am feeling down it is great to have a strong support system that lifts me up. Even the most confident of people have their down days and how you handle yourself when you are sad and who you turn to make all the difference. Having supportive people around you that help add to your confidence and shine light on your strengths is something that truly helps you to build and maintain your overall confidence.
VISUALIZE YOUR GOALS + ACCOMPLISH THEM
One of the things that have made me confident over the years is setting goals + accomplishing them. There is something so satisfying about setting goals whether it be with your career, your health and well being, your personal growth + more and then working hard to make those goals happen! When you are able to accomplish what you set your mind to it leads to a great sense of self confidence!
ICYMI – I’m engaged and a bride to be so I am excited about posting all things wedding leading up to our big day May 2021! I’m going to be Disney bride so I am excited as I prep for the big day + I am stocking up on lots of cute wedding goodies that I wanted to share with ya’ll! From bride robes to cute ring boxes to Disney Wedding goodies + more, these are sure to be perfect for any bride to be!
The Love Shack Fancy for Target collection came in hot + sold out within a few days but I was lucky enough to snag a few of their gorgeous designs that are too cute to pass up. I have always been a fan of Love Shack Fancy but their price point is a bit high let’s be honest so when they collaborated with Target I knew now was my chance so I went all out, and this dress is currently ones of my absolute favorites!
I paired this dress with the Tory Burch Petite Lee Radizwill bag. I love this bag because I wanted to embrace the micro bag trend but still needed a little room and this bag works perfectly! It can fit your lipstick, phone, keys + more so it’s a micro bag that isn’t so micro!
I also styled this look with white pointed toe pumps, a total classic as well. They are a signature shoe that you need to have in your wardrobe because you will get so much wear out of it.
