Beautifully designed by Lisa Hedge, this save-the-date displays a combination of minimal typography and clipped floral images which is fresh, fun and unexpected.
Here’s a save-the-date that will grow – and grow – on your loved ones. Find vintage illustrated seed packets (you can buy them on websites like eBay or Etsy) for the state flower of where you’re getting married. Then, fashion a cute card to frame it. To add the packet, cut four diagonal slits (1/2 inch is long enough) on the card, so that you can tuck in the corners. Vintage seed packets, Garden Lelah, gardenlelah.etsy.com.
These charming save-the-dates prove good news can come in small packages, too. Purchase mini cards and envelopes and affix them to the postcards. Handwrite or stamp your wedding information on the cards; tuck them in the envelopes, and seal. Add standard first-class postage, and you’re set to announce you’ve set the date.
Snail mail has never been quite so exciting. Upon opening their envelopes, your friends will find an unexpected surprise – balloons printed with the details of your day, attached to white cards bearing simple instructions. The childhood throwback gives guests all the information they need, and sets the tone for a fun-filled wedding.
