jigg and I originally planned to send out our save the date cards using a series of Polaroids as the basis for our design. Our guests would receive one of the five Polaroids below, each representing something from me and jigg’s relationship.
We thought this would be an unique approach to traditional save the dates and would fit into the general “feel” of our wedding reception well (we’re actually calling it our first anniversary celebration) – fun, casual, and quirky.
The Polaroids were pretty easy to create on Photoshop. The doodles I did myself on my pen tablet. Although I was very confident that I could produce them at a very low cost (~$100 for 200 pieces), we had no way of bringing down our postage expense.
We ended up scrapping the idea and decided to send electronic versions instead. Bummer, I know. But now I’m looking forward to invitations!
