A few weeks ago, I was working with a good friend of mine to design save the dates. She wanted something fun, informative, and useful. As I was pondering what could fill all of that criteria, it came to her: “Let’s make a bookmark!”
I love the idea of wedding save the date bookmarks because they will be used for years to come. Usually (if you’re anything like me), regular save the dates go on the fridge, and a few months after the wedding, I realize the save the date is still on the fridge and I either recycle it or put it in storage. But there’s no need to put save the date bookmarks in storage because you can use them long after the big day has passed!
The design we came up with is above. It’s a 2″x6″ bookmark with a front and back. I love the photo booth style back with their engagement photos! More than that, I adore the front. I’m a sucker for save the dates that tell “the story”, and the save the date bookmark tells the story in a short, sweet, pretty manner. I happened to have watercolor artwork on hand that complements their story ([The Bean] print; The Statue of Liberty), and I was able to punctuate their save the date bookmarks with these graphics.
I really love the way the save the date bookmarks turned out, and I think they are a great way to announce your upcoming engagement because they are informative, beautiful, and inexpensive. If you’d like to collaborate with me on a save the date bookmark, [contact me] for information.
