Save the Dates with Artifact Uprising

Create beautiful Save the Dates with Artifact Uprising!

My babiest (that’s a word right?!) sister is getting married! A couple years ago, I shared how my baby sister was getting married & now I’m announcing the next one! I’m the oldest of four – three girls & a boy. We have all been so close growing up and even more so as we all enter our twenties. I feel like it was just yesterday (four years this summer) that I was planning my wedding and now I am helping my youngest sister with her wedding details! It is really fun to see how similar all of our weddings are yet how completely different they are for each couple! I just love that about weddings & wedding planning.

My wedding was huge & in the mountains, Becca’s wedding was huge & in Arkansas, and Sarah’s will be a small & in Florida. Sarah is totally having a destination wedding! We’re all pretty pumped for obvious reasons – Beach, Disney, HP World, and Beach! When we started to look for Save the Dates (yes “we” because I am a big sister and I boss my way into everything 😉 ) we noticed that Artifact Uprising had just launched their save the date line!! PERFECT!

Sarah picked out some favorites (believe me it was hard) and we ordered those babies! All Artifact Uprising’s Save the Dates are printed on premium quality 100% recycled paper and include kraft envelopes. They also have modern yet classic designs that feature the couple (photo driven) & pretty much instantly make your Save the Date fridge worthy! To make the Save the Date-ing go faster, we threw a little party. Complete with coffee, tons of  (hot) sunshine pouring through windows, and lots of giggles. The best medicine for wedding planning stress is great help & lots of giggling – it’s a proven fact 😉 In less than an hour, these cards were all addressed & set to go. Get ready Florida. Here we come.
