✨ Happily Ever Save The Date ✨
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!
