As promised, I have more inspiration boards from the finalists of the Save the Date contest from Delphine! Here are the next three finalists (again, in no particular order):

My fiance, Lee, and I live in Providence, RI, but are getting married next May in Fairhope, Alabama (close to my family and friends). Lee and I are having to pay for the majority of the wedding, and because of extra costs such as traveling and hotels, our budget is tight. I feel that the Savannah style fits perfectly with my wedding. We are getting married at The Fairhope Inn. It is a small charming bed and breakfast and restaurant in Fairhope, AL. We will have both the ceremony and the reception in the garden courtyard. I want my wedding to be fun and springy and green and fresh. I love botanical anything, and I love, love the Savannah invitations and Save the Dates! They would fit so perfectly with the theme!
We chose the Fairmont Copley as our venue because of its beautiful architecture, intricate gold detailing and cozy, warm ambiance. We picked the month of October for its rich autumn hues and seasonal food offerings. From there we began focusing on the little details: stacked corks to hold the seating cards, wooden wine crates to give depth and height to our antipasto display, olive oil favors to honor my fiancé's Greek heritage. We started thinking about the flowers; clustered vases with full garden roses, submerged orchids, dripping crystals and floating candles. We want our wedding to reflect the romance and beauty of the California vineyards. We see the candlelight as being reminiscent of the wine cellars with their antique candelabras and cool cement walls. The colors that we chose; gold, champagne, ivory, peach and cream play to the peaceful elegance of the area and the cascading crystals add that sexiness that permeates everything in Napa Valley.
