A Save The Date Magnet
I'm one of those lucky brides who had a fiance eager to help and be involved with the wedding plans.
One of the first projects I gave my sweetie was to go online and look into save the date cards. First I had to spend 3 weeks "helping" him to understand what they are and why we needed them. He was convinced that they are some "California" kind of thing that nobody else in the world uses. Finally he began researching and was instantly drawn to the idea of a save the date magnet, instead of a paper invitation.
His goal? That our guests will all keep thier magnets on their fridges for at least 30 years. LOL. Most have said they're keeping them forever.
So I got to work designing a custom illustration that looked like us, and our dog as he would be participating in our ceremony and reception. It was kind of like a family portrait minus our cat.
As many of you know the save the date and/or invitations begin to set the "tone" of your wedding. Ours was of course a little silly and "fun and flirty." What else could it be?
