save the date - whether i like it or not

As a girl planning a low budget wedding who happens to be in school for graphic design i decided i was going to make our wedding stationary - only makes sense right? If i can't do it for myself how am I to ever be expected to make a logo or identity system for a client? It's super scary.

I am having such a hard time pulling the trigger on my design. Mike likes it, my parents think it's super cute, but why am I still unsure? I know the answer, I want to be sure the one person who may care too much about being fancy and professional thinks its worthy and not something from a cracker jack box. I can't shake it.

I know the point of doing it myself is to not be perfect or fancy or professionally made but to come from us, and that my Grandmothers will like anything I send if they know it's from me. Is it my own struggles with perfection? Is it the silly wedding blogs and the desire to be uber clever and ground breaking? Probably.

Well, I'm putting it out there, I'm pulling the trigger. I am going to break out the Gocco this weekend and start the production line, cause really whats worse? Not having the most clever stationary ever or someone not making it to our celebration because they got booked before we gave them notice?
