Travel Inspired Save the Date

These save the dates are cute, quirky, and completely delightful. Leslie from Lilly & Louise ( worked with bride and groom Miranda and Matt to create a unique and interactive save the date. They paired a vintage map of California, where the wedding will take place, with baker’s twine and a bold striped envelope liner for a whimsical travel-inspired design.

From Leslie: Miranda and Matt wanted to excite guests with a unique and unexpected save the date… something tactile and textural that would leave an impression. Both Miranda and Matt are from the East coast and their wedding will be in California, so it will be a destination wedding for many of their family and friends and they wanted to incorporate the idea of travel into the design. With a palette of peach, navy, gray and cream, we mixed organic elements of a vintage map of Southern California and geometric elements of bold, thick stripes.

Because good mail is even better with an interactive element, we chose to include the actual save the date information inside a mini envelope. Upon opening the envelope, guests find a classic quote from When Harry Met Sally, then unfold more details. The entire save the date is bound by navy and white twine and two small tags.
