Oh my gosh I had the best weekend ever!!  I took a trip from Austin to Dallas to put together my save the dates with my bridesmaids.  It started out a little rocky due to the inclement weather Texas had this past weekend.

And a typical three hour drive took six hours.  But it was all worth it.  First off, they surprised me with a delicious spread of food (um…by the time we took a picture we had already eaten quite a bit).  Bridesmaid Amy even searched and found vegetarian bacon for me for the yummy salad!

And then, they surprised me with a taste test of the 3 signature cocktails I was considering, yum:

Belini-tini

We all tasted each one, and still couldn’t decide which drink to choose, so we might have to do this again. 🙂 

After we’d eaten more tortilla rolls than we cared to count and had a few cocktails, we were ready to start the assembly of the save the dates.  We each took on a task:

Sister Fro Yo addressed all the envelopes

Bridesmaid Amy stuck all the magnets on the moo cards

Bridesmaid Kim secured the ribbon around the magnet and the save the dates (I don’t have a photo of this, but she also made cocktails)

And me?  Well, I sort of bounced around from one chore to the next– cutting magnets and ribbon, securing the ribbon, and stuffing envelopes.  I also made sure that everyone was happy with a cocktail.

Tada!!  I’m SO happy with how they came out and cannot say thank you enough to my wonderful bridesmaids.  They were such an enormous help and so thoughtful. I swear, I have the best bridesmaids.  I feel very lucky!! 

So how did you feel about your save the dates, did they come out just as you’d hoped for??

Such a fun afternoon! I’m still willing to drill a hole in the Chambord bottle for Erika’s pimp cup…I think it would make a lovely addition to the reception 🙂

These are great pictures! I look envelope-stuffing challenged!
