This is our Save the Date, designed by the one and only Anna Bond of Rifle Design. I know many of the invites you have featured are DIY, but I had such a great time working with Anna that I had to send this along to you.
My fiance Chris had three cats when I met him. I initially thought a guy with three cats was kind of weird, but I quickly grew to love both Chris and his cats and now they are like family to me. Because the cats are a big part of our lives we asked Anna to incorporate them into our Save the Date. Our eldest cat Marge, the little black one
behind Chris, passed away the week the postcard was completed. To us it’s a Save the Date, but it’s also a nice little memorial to Marge.

Now that The Highline is open to the public here in NYC, I’m going to take a wild guess and say we’re going to be seeing a lot more bridal shoots there…these were taken by Annabel of Belathée Photography.

I thought I would send ours over for you to see and maybe add to the Save the Date features. Although, I have to say I’m a little nervous sending you pictures, since I know that you look at amazing wedding inspiration every day. They are DIY with lots love. Our amazing friends and family helped us form an assembly line one weekend at my house to put together all the pieces. I used my favorite Cricut and Cuttlebug craft machines for cutting the numbers and embossing. The paper products including the mini envelopes are from Paper Source. They were hard work, but we’ve been getting lots of fun feedback from our guests and I’m hoping that it gets them excited for the wedding that is to come. Now I just have to figure out what to do for our invitations!

I’m here to share my save the date… hopefully someone can find this inspirational.
John Vogl is the mastermind behind theBungaloo and normally creates fantastic band posters, but we asked him to make a poster for our upcoming wedding. We couldnt be happier with the way it turned out!
His work is here www.thebungaloo.com and I have attached the poster. Love it!

My husband Rama and I are both artists with a special fondness for children’s book illustration, so our wedding theme was vintage + children’s book + and just plain sweet. Our printed materials were inspired by The Little Prince, one of our favorite books. For the save-the-date, Rama drew a portrait of me as a girl and I drew a portrait of him as a boy, and the two versions were sent out to our respective families and friends. The story continues — and the two drawings coming together — with our invitations.
