'Twas (Two Months) Before Christmas

There were a lot of things I looked forward to about being married; living in the same zip code as the love of my life, sharing fun experiences and making memories together, and, of course, finally sending out a joint holiday card. I could never bring myself to send out cards from the two of us before we were married; to me, it felt like something specifically reserved for when you officially become a family. (Obviously, this is just my opinion...plenty of people do it and I've never thought twice about it!) One of the highlights of our first holiday season as husband and wife will certainly be sending out our very first Christmas (and Hanukkah) card!

Because Shutterfly loves bloggers, we will not only be sending out holiday cards, but we will be sending out some gorgeous holiday cards at the perfect price: free! I have used Shutterfly in the past for photo prints, including of our engagement pictures, and it is always exciting to see an orange envelope in the mailbox! The quality is definitely top-notch.

Plus, scrolling through all of the designs for cards this year is almost overwhelming; there are so many cute ones! Here are a couple of Christmas cards that caught my eye:


My side of the family is Jewish, so we'll also be sending out a Hanukkah or generic Holiday card as well, and Shutterfly has cute options for both!

 


It looks like I've got my work cut out for me; I know it will be tough to choose! (Not to mention picking the perfect pictures, too! One last use for wedding photos, anyone?)

Disclaimer: In exchange for this post, I received free holiday cards from Shutterfly. The opinions expressed, however, are 100% my own!
If you're a blogger too, head here to get in on the deal!

That was one of the things I looked forward to when we got married too! I love sitting down and addressing all of our cards together.

Awww I can't wait for this! It's all of these little things that make me SO giddy about being married. I also can't wait to send out a yearly update letter about our family to go along with the card :)

Good luck choosing!

Thanks for reminding me that I need to start thinking of a good photo idea for our Christmas cards... I can't believe it is already getting so close! :) I love the ones that you selected as favorites. I used Shutterfly last year too. I'm going to check out this year's collection now!

Aw, so sweet!
And I am with you... I think I would only send a card once we were married :)
Can't wait to see the finished products!
