I met with Briana and her mother late last summer at her family's beautiful ocean-front home in Rhode Island where the wedding will take place this August. It was a warm, breezy summer day and we talked all things wedding and stationery on their porch watching the boats sail by. After going through every idea from puzzle pieces to mini envelopes, Briana decided she would like a save the date based on my own save the date design.
Briana and her fiance, Grant, wanted to give guests a sense of the wedding location, so I created a custom illustration of Briana's parents' home with small sailboats. We commisioned Grace Edmands for the calligrahy of "Save the Date" and their names. The small card in the middle is a magnet that can be removed from the larger card and is "held" in place by two small gulls.
The save the dates were letterpress printed on 100% cotton paper in natural white. The magnets were printed in navy blue ink and the flat card was printed in aqua and magenta ink. We paired the save the dates with coordinating aqua envelopes.
