I sort of feel like i am singing the Yankee Stadium song as i type that! Yup, a big fan here. Anyway, i wasn’t thinking baseball music when i wrote that, i was thinking of Save the Dates! The past few months are always a big time of year for new engagements. After the fun of being engaged settles in, save the dates must go out!
Save the dates can stay traditional or can take a fun turn and play on the couple’s personalities! I really enjoy designing save the dates which allow something fun from the couple’s history together, the venue or just something they love as a way to express the information. Save the dates don’t have to “match” the invites either!
Here is a save the date for a bar mitzvah. The celebration was themed international and so the save the date illustrated that. However, the invitation was really formal with traditional script fonts and engraved lettering.
Here is another save the date that set the tone for the big day for Alexis and David. I hand illustrated the birds and branches which weren’t used in the invitations, but were used in all other aspects of the wedding stationery such as programs, custom coasters, out of town packages and favors.
As soon as you start announcing your engagement, be prepared to answer all sorts of questions such as “When is the big day”, “Where will the wedding be” and “Where will we stay”? All of these questions can be answered on your save the date. Whether it is a calendar style, a postcard style, or inclusive of a photograph – make it you and don’t be afraid to get creative!
