I was rummaging through our closet the other day and out fell these babies – the Save The Dates from our barn wedding! Yippee! We sold most of our wedding paraphernalia, including my dress (sad face) due to lack of storage space, so this was a sweet little souvenir to stumble upon.

Funny side story – Hubs and I designed these ourselves and those chatty piglets were a major point of contention while we were putting this together. I ADAMANTLY wanted pigs – I mean, are they not everyone’s favorite barnyard animal? However, the crazy swine flu epidemic was going on at the time and pigs were getting a bad rap, so Hubs wanted to use a different animal that didn’t scream omg we’re all going to die! Ohhh the totally bizarre things you argue about under the stress of wedding planning. I’m really glad the piggies made the cut in the end – they still make me giggle 2 years later!
