Here are my Save-the-Dates, designed by the amazing Erica Miller at Thoughtful Day. Erica worked with pictures of our venues–an art deco movie theater (ceremony) and a 19th century church turned event space (reception.) The “church” has some taxidermy in it, and Erica did a fantastic job of capturing the vibe of our impending Central PA wedding! People FLIPPED OUT when they got these babies in the mail… Erica’s wonderful, and I can’t wait to see our finished invites!

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.

Let me begin by saying that I LOVE your blog. I got engaged in February, and Brooklyn Bride inspired me to start my own blog. You have so many great vendor recommendations for folks in New York, and I was having trouble finding unique vendors where I live in San Diego, so I started blogging about it.
Anyway, my fiance and I just got our save-the-dates ordered from a fantastic designer in Seattle, Tere Mendez at Inkfancy. I know I’m a little biased, but I think they are amazing. Jeff & I have been together for 8 years, and we are trying to design a wedding that is elegant but still fun and with the atmosphere of a real, fun party. I think our save-the-dates totally communicate all of that!

When my husband and I first got in engaged, it was right around thanksgiving and we ended up planning a November wedding. I wanted to make a save the date that was useful and unique. I took inspiration from a calendar I picked up at Hatch Show Print when in Nashville a few years before- they used their test prints and extra prints as the backing to their desk calendars. We sent them out with our Christmas cards that year so people could use the calendar the following year and start to use it right away. Our wedding date is circled on the calendar as well.

Saw on Twitter that you are looking for save the date submissions – just thought I would send over our own save the date. We printed this on our Gocco. We were getting married in Seattle and most of our friends and family were going to have to travel to get there…
