Save the Date cards

Remember these? I’ve sent out almost all of them and I’m getting some awesome feedback, people love em! Thought you guys might want to see them up close. Here’s what the photobooth strip looks like:

Save the Date

Photos by the amazing Nicole and design by the fantastic Cassie, who is doing a ton of designery stuff for the wedding so I don’t drive myself insane. I like playing art director, ha. You guys like em?

  1. Greatest idea EVER! they look really great.

    I remember people doing stuff like this around the time of my wedding and they ended up looking cheap. Yours look amazing.

  2. I’m a new vistor (found you when I searched for reviews for the latest Morrissey tour) but I had to tell you that a, this site rules. And b, those are the coolest wedding cards I have ever seen. Awesome.

  3. I was going to email you to tell you just how fabulous this is! :)

  4. Love them :D It is like a little piece of art for my fridge. You guys are so cute, I can’t stand it.

  5. These are amazing and totally fun!

  6. I was going to call you today and tell you how awesome it looks. We have someone else’s save the date on our fridge too and yours looks about 900x cooler.

  7. They are fantastic! You guys/gals did a wonderful job :)

  8. totally kick ass!

  9. so, so great. love the colors. fantastic design.

  10. Fabulous!!!

  11. These are awesome and it’s nice to see your colors!

  12. they look awesome! Great idea!

  13. These are great and so full of humour! I love it when people don’t take themselves and their wedding too seriously ;)

    I’m not doing save the date cards for our wedding, there’s no real need because our family are all within an hour or two of us.

  14. Those are really great – the photos are so fun, and the finished product looks awesome. :D

  15. They are sooo cool!

  19. This is an amazing Save The Date idea! We went away to the Bahamas :) Perhaps a one-year anniversary type thing with a photo on it. Hehe. Super cute!


  20. I GOT MINE! I LOVE IT!! so cute!

  21. love them even better up close! Best idea. Are you going to keep the theme for your wedding invitations?

  22. Thanks everyone! We won’t be using the photobooth theme for the invites but they will be super fun and colorful too. We may rent a photobooth for the reception though!

  31. Amber…
    As always, you ROCK, girl! Great pictures, great card…your wedding AND marriage are going to be soooo much fun.

  32. Ditto on all of the above…but I’ve to to go back to your archives…you guys are getting married! Congrats!

  33. They look so great, Amber. I admit I got a sneak peak a couple of weeks ago, after I dropped by Cassie’s house and she happened to be working on them. You and Jimmy seem like such a fun couple. The cards really evoke a fun loving and lighthearted feeling- good job!

  34. These are so cute! I love the colors!!

  35. They are over the top cute and original which makes them all the better.

  36. These are stunning. I love the red and blue combo and the black background is a great choice.

    I just stumbled upon your blog today. You definitely have a new subscriber. :)

  37. Too cute! So original and I love the colors. Love your blog too!

  38. I love these a lot!

  39. These are just too cool! Great idea.


  40. i love the ‘the’ frame. they look great, just like actual booth photos.

  41. these are soooo yummy! I love them!!

  42. love them! i

  43. these are SOOO awesome! if you don’t mind me asking, how did you make them!?!?

  44. A friend of ours took the photos. Then we picked the four we liked. Another friend put them together in the photobooth format in photoshop, and took the color out except for the letters. That’s it!

  45. I’m a new visitor, I stumbled upon your site by searching for info on Craft Mafia. I have to say, you completely inspire me!

    These cards are so awesome! What is the black background made of?


  46. Those are the most AMAZING save the date cards I’ve EVER seen (sorry for the caps, but I love fun stuff and unfortunately I seemed to miss out on the creativity boat :-S )

    I’m not sure if It’s something your friends do for fun or work… if for work… what are their general rates?

  47. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the save the date cards. Super kicky.

  48. That is honestly the best “save the date” card, even invitation, I’ve ever seen. So cute!

  49. SOOOO great, it’s the most beautiful announcement ever!! (And that coming from a graphic designer myself! hehe)

  50. AWESOME! Love your beautiful creativity! I am inspired!!!!!!!
