This weekend I finished designing the save the dates for my June wedding. I wanted to share them with you, since I have you to thank in part for the inspiration. Your fantastic tutorial on digital silhouettes provided me with just what I needed to realize my vision. My fiancé and I share a passion for genealogy. So in addition to featuring our family trees as our reception theme, we’re sprinkling in a little old-fashioned charm with the silhouettes, crocheted doilies and vintage millinery flowers. I hope that our save the dates really set the tone for our special day.

I have been a faithful reader of your blog for quite some time – all you have to do is google brooklyn AND weddings and it comes up =)I just started my own wedding blog last week (www.idonyc.blogspot.com) and over the weekend I ran a posting about my Save The Dates. I am not sure they are really groundbreaking but what I love about them is 1) they were SO affordable and easy to order – all online at www.weddingpaperdivas.com 2) they are a gorgeous shade of green 3) our black and white photo really pops against the color 4) the quality was really awesome and we couldn’t be happier with the turn out.
I am born & raised in brooklyn and also a stage 6 bride-to-be so naturally our photo fits our brooklyn theme.

Our Save-the-Dates were my first real project using the Gocco–and what a way to start. We printed about 200 so we could have extras just in case we had any mess-ups…however we were married over a month ago and still have a huge stack!!
I blogged about them…what seems like eons ago…here.

I designed this in Photoshop. I mailed them in small, bold red reply-card envelopes. Thanks for looking!! I love your blog.

We were able to use this vintage postcard because it was in public domain (no more copy write). The local postcard exchange group: http://iwhome.com/tpcec/index.
htmlgave us the scanned image in a pdf. A graphic designer friend of mine, added the “see you in October” tag on the front and the info on the back. We loved that we were able to use the original captions.We received lots of great feedback and it was so simple, since we “recycled” an idea form the past.
