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.

My husband and I were married last December in Sydney, Australia and our favourite photographer was not able to attend. So when we returned to frigid Toronto, Ontario, where we live, we did a little shoot out on frozen Lake Ontario, wearing our wedding gear (as well as vintage bear fur stole and warmer boots
The photographer was Matt O’Sullivan who I believe is one of the best emerging wedding photographers in our city, growing his business from his amazing street photography work: http://thenarrative.net/

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.
