My sister-in-law is an architect (dub-studios.com) and made these for us in photoshop. We had seen someone do something with the subway before so we kind of took that idea and made it our own. You’ll see that the advertisement above the subway is actually a picture of me and Aaron (we got dressed up in Spain and took one of those cheesy tourist photos). The picture is taken at the NR stop on Prince Street and Broadway, next to Dean & Deluca. The back of the postcard was written as if this were a piece of art, and we wrote in personal notes to every guest before sending!
Love your blog and saw your post on STDs. Must share ours, which my future brother in law fashioned. We have just under 3 weeks to go, and am beyond stressed. When I saw your post I had to share just for a second to take me back to how happy and calm I was just a few months ago…
I am a fan of your blog and saw a few of the other save-the-dates posted so I thought I’d send you ours. It was a single card with info on the front and back that looked like a Craiglist ad. I met my fiance, Brett, a few years ago when I answered a craigslist posting for a room in a house in Philadelphia. One of Brett’s roommates moved out and they posted the ad. I didn’t take the room but we ended up chatting through email and eventually got together. We are getting married on Nov 29 and I can’t freakin wait!!!

I wanted to share our save the date card which was a very simple post card (just our return address). We are getting married in the remote mountains of Idaho and wanted something simple and fun that our guests would get a kick out of — on a budget. Total cost for 250 post cards w/envelopes through vistaprint.com was $80.

I wanted to forward you my fiance and I’s save-the-date that we mailed out for our upcoming wedding. We wanted to send out something somewhat unusual and different from the typical magnet, calendar, etc. Something that would reflect us and how we met. So we sent out two bar coasters per couple with our invitation design (that was inspired by my bouquet of button dahlia’s – pic also attached), and on the back of the coasters told the story of how we met at a funky little bar in the ‘Short North’ in Columbus, Ohio. The story on the back of the coasters went something like this:
Chris e-mailed me out of the blue one day.
Do you want to have drinks or something like that?
Something like that? Yeah, I’d like that.
We met on a Tuesday at a funky dive called Press Grill.
I’ll be the one in orange pants, I said.
He walked in and sat down across from me.
You must be Emily, he whispered with a smile.
I knew that night…
The conversation about our childhood, stories from our
lives that brought us to that moment.
Sweet, small talk. (over a mojito and a beer)
I knew that night…He was the one.
