My colleague and friend Maria is a designer. She has her regular day job, and then on the side she has a business designing fun, creative things like wedding invitations.
She made the cutest Save the Date (or STD, which quite amuses me) cards for Jenny, who got engaged just before Christmas. I might ask her if I can post hers, actually, because they are so cool.
Anyway, when I got engaged, Maria asked if I'd like her to design my invitations. I had considered doing them myself, to save money. But she has great design sense, and I think it's important to support designers, I really do. So I told her that as long as she is fair - to herself, not just to me - I would be happy to hire her to design them.
She asked what my colors were, which made me realize I'm the least bride-y bride around. Colors?
The only ones that came to mind were "blush and bashful" - but does anyone actually picture me in a big ole' Southern frou-frou wedding? Not so much.
So I said "Um. I like orange. And fuchsia."
Because I do.
So she offered to do the layout for the magnets, using the same colors and font that she'll use for the invites.
She gave me these to review.
What do you think?

Save the date!
We are choosing among the following three designs for our magnets.
