We love fun Save the Date ideas! This one is no exception. It is for a wedding at Old Edwards Inn and our sister photography company 6 of Four Photography was commissioned to document the day. The original idea was a lightweight stock z-fold card. When we proofed the card, the client quickly decided they wanted something different. This is where it got fun. We gave them some ideas which right away evolved into this lovely piece. These three pieces gave information for their out-of-town and out-of-country guests a good ways out so that they have plenty of time to book a flight, a hotel room and even plan their stay with little effort.
Our favorite two elements was the use of the halftone, the picture of one of the location’s builds; and the grouping with baker’s twine. The halftone is a simple way to have an image printed in letterpress. Used here for the background set the scene that all their guest will be familiar with by the end of their wedding weekend. The baker’s twine is a nice alternative to using satin ribbon. After all the pieces are trimmed we then collate and tie each set for a perfect presentation for their guests.
