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.

we got a lot of positive – fun feedback about our save-the-dates. we wanted something casual, but slightly different. i loved the idea of a card that opened up, and my husband who plays in a band, liked the music/poster style. inadvertently we chose a sort of typical mardi gras color combo – something that was perfect as i spent 7 years living in new orleans.

I’ve found Brooklyn Bride to be such a stylish, fun source of inspiration–when I saw your recent post on Save the Dates, I thought I’d send ours along. We ordered the return address stamp from Paperwink (after seeing a post about them on Brooklyn Bride) and then chose Carnival MF Open as a near-match to print the envelopes. I love tiny stuff, so the moo cards and the golf pencils were especially fun for me (they’re still on sale from Write On Pencils & they’ll do up to three imprint lines for free. We chose a pun, the date, and our website). We found the library stamp in the basement, and the other stamps were drawn by my main squeeze. We had fun assembling these little packets, and from what we’ve heard people had fun opening them, too!
