We sent our save the dates last week! Even though we’ve been planning since September, it really seems like the wedding countdown clock started when we put the postcards in the mail.
Our cards were designed by Serendipity Beyond Design and I just love them. To go with our travel theme, we selected the ‘vintage postcard’ style, and included an old map of Seattle in the background. The back has the date and website information for guests. Lucky for us (okay, me, Greg would never have noticed) the current postcard stamp was a mix of four herbs with a vintage vibe. They looked great. I used a gold pen for the addresses. For cards that had several names I had to use a less pretty pen that was thinner, but I think they still looked nice.
Here’s Greg putting them in the letter slot at the post office.
