There are a million and 1 ways to save money, especially on weddings – all you have to do is take the time to look for them.

Addressing invitations can quickly take a sizable chunk out of your budget, but it doesn’t have to. I thought about printing folks addresses on clear labels and then applying them to the envelopes … a good idea, but not very classy.

Short of learning calligraphy, I was at a loss on what to do, but then I found Jenn’s Calligraphy 101 post and was saved!

We are still working on our invitation designs, but once we are ready to send them out, I plan on using Jenn’s nifty calligraphy trick to save money yet maintain a considerable amount of style.

After featuring a host of yellow and gray options, I thought it only fair to feature a big selection of yellow and blue inspirations.

I’m still toying with the idea of wearing a non-white dress, but I keep coming back to the “traditional” concept. I’ve already decided that I won’t wear white – if I do go with a light color, it will be ivory (looks better with my skin tone anyway).

Because of my height (and for comfort ), I’ll be wearing flats. I’m 2 inches taller than my fiance and I have no want or need to tower over him even more! Maybe it is a chick thing, but I’ve had lots of fun browsing around the web for swank, colorful flats to wear with my likely-ivory dress.

If you have any suggestions for great shoe brands or websites, leave a comment and let me know!
