Happy Valentine's Day!! You would think that being an engaged couple, Steven and I would be going all out for our Valentine's Day, but it's the exact opposite..... he got me rubber floor mats for my new car,  I got him house slippers, and we're not even going out for dinner LOL

Anyways, as we're checking things off of our wedding to-do list, it's becoming more and more real that our wedding is just 5 months away! After the San Diego Yacht Club confirmed our date, I immediately tapped into the Asian side of myself and got to work on our Save-the-Dates. I come from a family of type-A women, who are highly efficient in everything they do so I had to get it done STAT.

I didn't want to do the standard Save-the-Date because I feel like people just look at it, and throw it away (not gonna lie, I've been guilty of that). I wanted something that was unique to us, something that would showcase our personality as a couple. So I got to Pinteresting. 

Steven and I met on Tinder, and I came across a really cute Save-the-Date idea. Rather than paying someone on Etsy to design it and print it, I decided I'm going to make my own!

So, I opened up Photoshop, found our actual Tinder profile pictures, and started designing. Then, I sent it over to Costco to print, and they just got delivered yesterday!!!

Now that I have our Save-the-Dates, my next task is: the guest list. I have a huge family so many friends, so I'm going to need some advice on limiting the guest list, but we'll save that topic for next week's Wedding Wednesday!
