Save the Date Contest Finalists {Part 2}

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):

Kate S: Design: Meeting Street;  Ink Colors: Crimson and Freesia
My fiance and I had our entire wedding planned in my native New York City, but the economy has taken its toll and we have had to cancel our plans and move everything to my moms backyard in Westchester, NY. Its even more exciting now as we are planning a very communal wedding, asking friends and family to contribute towards the day in lieu of gifts. The style of the wedding is going to be very outdoorsy and whimsical, with a vintage feel. We are going to have a 1930's style band, elegant dresses, men in straw hats and floral prints – a sort of hippie meets glamour evening. Since I love color so much its hard to narrow them down for a theme, but red and yellow have always been my favorite combination, they shouldn't work together but they just do!

Libby: Design: Savannah;  Ink Colors: Two-tone greens (like
key lime and palm)

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!

Lindsay: Design: The Robin Collection;  Ink Colors: Tangerine +

Lindsay and her fiancé are planning a wedding that reflects their memories of a trip to Napa Valley, California, where they were engaged:

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.
