There is nothing I enjoy more than helping two individuals express themselves as a couple through their wedding stationery. I am engaged myself and our big day is fast approaching (only 2 months to go, eek!). Being in this type of work, you’d think I’d have it all figured out but I’m learning it feels very different to have the tables turned on you. Fortunately, coming up with our save the dates was a fun process that started as a conversation over breakfast one Saturday morning and resulted in a rough sketch on paper a couple hours later.
Having a destination wedding (hello, Santa Fe!), we thought it would be fun to die cut chipboard in the shape of a luggage tag that our guests could then pop out. The playful yet modern format pretty much set the tone for the rest of the design. We used a map to visually tell the story of our journey together. And on the back, we injected some of our random humor by adding blank fields to enter your Twitter feed and Myers-Briggs personality type. With everyone’s help at the studio I was able to get all of the details just right for printing. And like all of the invitations that come off the press, the final result far exceeded our expectations. We were so excited that we even threw in some string for good measure. You can bet we will be eyeing our guests’ luggage as they arrive!
