As a designer, I take a lot of pride in stationery and paper goods, so these save the dates—the first thing our guests would see—were the one thing about the wedding I was dying to get exactly right. Even though it took a long time to get our save the dates done, I absolutely love them! I tried to add lots of small details (which meant doing a lot of work) to really personalize them, and it makes me a little dizzy to think I’m soon going to do it all over again (and then some!) for our invitations.
- Spray-painted gold-edged envelopes
- Custom save-the-date stickers and wraparound labels
- Our return address rubber stamp
- Collecting personal vintage postage stamps
So, yeah. I may have put a little too much effort into our save the dates. But you know what? Our guests are loving them, if Facebook and Instagram are any indication.
