  • Wedding: September 2012

Ours isn’t super quirky, really. We’re just asking people to go online to RSVP to our wedding website. It’s sort of a money-saver. We originally thought of sending invites with “Our Story” to start out like Jaws but ended up adding it to the site instead:

 

“She was a salty old sea captain on a small island near Montauk wiht an axe to grind. He was a vengeful, maneating shark with a taste for blood- human blood.   Wait, hold on. That’s the plot of “Jaws”- our story is different.” 

 

We’re bucking the trend with a lot of wedding stuff and we thought the invites tended to get a little stuffy. I think this was just another way to show our sense of humor about it all.

For invitations I am planning to do (and really hoping I can pull off!) something similar to these pop up std’s I saw on SMP, only the background will be the beach!!  We’re taking engagement pictures in August, so designing will happen once we’ve gotten those back.  Save the Dates, won’t be too quirky, just magnets, probably a picture of the two of us on FI’s motorcycle ๐Ÿ™‚

My invites were more traditional, but I thought my Save-The-Date Cards were cheeky.

@Steph18:  I think that’s a great idea to keep the text simple. Cute picture!

Our wedding didn’t have a theme or a color palette so we actually had wedding invitations that featured “Our Story Thus Far” – it was a mini kraft booklet that told a quirky little story of who we are (with our baby photos), how we met/got engaged, and our invitation. It was a great way to share a bit with our guests and get them excited about the next chapter!
