My fiance and I have gotten lots of compliments on our save the date (which we designed in Photoshop, and had a graphic designer friend “fix up”.

Here are some save-the-dates I designed for a darling NYC bride! I just loved her idea of incorporating antique keys. We are printing these digitally, but we’ll be gocco-ing her invites & RSVP cards. I’m in Raleigh, NC, where we’ve just had a 90-degree day- Jen’s colors are a refreshingly cool retreat for me!

I did these on Illustrator and printed and cut them myself. I also used gray A9 envelopes from papersource (where I got that neat embosser) which I lined with a photo of us from our engagement session with Punam Bean ( see here http://www.punambean.com/blog/?p=279). I was going to do custom stamps
but did not like the price so I was excited that the ‘love’ series stamp from the USPS worked well on the gray envelope. My last addition were the moo stickers which sealed the envelope in lieu of licking the glue – we did not want people to use a letter opener so you could see our lovely lining.

Let me begin by saying that I LOVE your blog. I got engaged in February, and Brooklyn Bride inspired me to start my own blog. You have so many great vendor recommendations for folks in New York, and I was having trouble finding unique vendors where I live in San Diego, so I started blogging about it.
Anyway, my fiance and I just got our save-the-dates ordered from a fantastic designer in Seattle, Tere Mendez at Inkfancy. I know I’m a little biased, but I think they are amazing. Jeff & I have been together for 8 years, and we are trying to design a wedding that is elegant but still fun and with the atmosphere of a real, fun party. I think our save-the-dates totally communicate all of that!

i made these save the dates for my upcoming wedding in berkeley, ca in august. i created the design with illustrator and then laser cut them on 1/16th inch plywood. i hand painted some with watercolors and left some unpainted to emphasize the material itself. i have additional photos i can send, as well as the actual save the dates if you would like to have one. mailing them was tricky because they are somewhat fragile so we sandwiched the between sage-y green museum board and chip board and tied them all together with a ribbon. as far as we’ve heard they all made it to everyone safe and sound!
