Bree’s save the date

I just read your post regarding the unique save the dates and invites and wanted to share our’s with you as well. Our invitation suite was very unique and it all started with our save the dates!!! We wanted to set the mood of the event – relaxed, fun and unique – through our paper suite.
The save the dates were round with a spin effect that lead guests to the additional information by turning it like a wheel (see pictures). The burst design was carried out through the rest of the suite into the invites and the unique rsvp that set the mood for guests. The invite was a matchbook style which the flap, which contains the monogram, flapped down to reveal the detailed information. We didn’t want the formal aspect of the response card – so we decided to change it up and let the guests have fun with it. Hence asking them to write a message, draw a picture or simply express themselves. It definitely lead to even more excitement when the response cards started coming back in the mail. Obviously we were excited to see who would be celebrating our special day with us – but also even more excited to see all the creativity behind the “express youself” section.

Alya’s save the date

Here’s another NY themed save the date!

My sister-in-law is an architect ( and made these for us in photoshop. We had seen someone do something with the subway before so we kind of took that idea and made it our own. You’ll see that the advertisement above the subway is actually a picture of me and Aaron (we got dressed up in Spain and took one of those cheesy tourist photos). The picture is taken at the NR stop on Prince Street and Broadway, next to Dean & Deluca. The back of the postcard was written as if this were a piece of art, and we wrote in personal notes to every guest before sending!

Elizabeth’s save the date

Love your blog and saw your post on STDs. Must share ours, which my future brother in law fashioned. We have just under 3 weeks to go, and am beyond stressed. When I saw your post I had to share just for a second to take me back to how happy and calm I was just a few months ago…

Ellenmarie’s save the date – craigslist style!

I am a fan of your blog and saw a few of the other save-the-dates posted so I thought I’d send you ours. It was a single card with info on the front and back that looked like a Craiglist ad. I met my fiance, Brett, a few years ago when I answered a craigslist posting for a room in a house in Philadelphia. One of Brett’s roommates moved out and they posted the ad. I didn’t take the room but we ended up chatting through email and eventually got together. We are getting married on Nov 29 and I can’t freakin wait!!!

Anna’s pre-RSVP

I wanted to share our save the date card which was a very simple post card (just our return address). We are getting married in the remote mountains of Idaho and wanted something simple and fun that our guests would get a kick out of — on a budget. Total cost for 250 post cards w/envelopes through was $80.
