I was just on your blog and since you’ve been doing save-the-dates, I thought I’d send mine along as well. Our designer put together a wedding logo based on the CBGB logo and then we had black t-shirts made and put all of the hotel info on laminated tags which we attached with safety pins. They were quite a hit!
We wanted to get the word out about our holiday weekend destination wedding early. Marit Hanson‘s concert poster Save the Dates were perfect for us – setting a “not to be missed” tone from the start, and perfect for two live music-lovers! We’re still getting compliments about them.

I have really enjoyed reading your blog while planning my upcoming wedding. You have a lot of unique, creative ideas that are so refreshing amidst the wedding hoopla!
Anyway, I thought I would share our save the date. We wanted to do something quirky, and decided to have our pets pose together; the dog is my fiance’s, and the cat is mine. They are actually wearing the signs, but we Photoshopped the text onto the signs. Our guests seem to think it’s pretty fun!

I’ve been watching your save the date series and thought I would try to submit mine even though I might be a little late, but I just finished printing these yesterday!
Our wedding is going to be cozy/casual with lots of green and wooden elements. I’m a graphic designer who is fortunate enough to work in a studio that also has a C+P letterpress, so I designed and printed these save the date postcards for our wedding.
We wanted to give our visitors a taste of the wooden elements to come with the wood grain, and I went a step further with it by drawing a heart with our initials in it as if it were carved into the wood. We also came up with the idea of using the “tying the knot” wording to have fun with some wood puns (we’ll probably doing things like, “Wood you join us at our wedding?” for our invitation). All of the bold type on the front and back of the card is hand drawn (it took forever), and the first side of the postcard is a darker cream color while the other side is a lighter cream color.
