Hoosier Love Birds…Double Save the Date Cards

There’s been a little trend with Save-the-Date Cards lately…send out two versions because you can’t decide which photograph you like best! Not a bad problem to have. Does it also say something about the future bride and groom when all the photos are so cute and great no one can narrow it down to just one? This particular happy couple happens to be one of my younger cousins, Chelsea, and her fiance Neil. They met at Indiana University, of which both are recent alumni. (Hence the Hoosier spirit of the cards). They had an amazing photo shoot and couldn’t decide between what we dubbed “the wine basket” and “the college shirts.” I mentioned that another bride of mine had the same dilemma and ultimately decided to order two versions. She jumped on the idea so here we are! Design-wise the layout is almost the same, and I just love how the typography came together. Combining too many fonts can be tricky but I think I found a pleasant balance. The back of both cards is the same; the black and white “date blocks” that they specifically set up with the photographer. (Clever!) I started in a completely different direction for these and it’s always funny where things end up. Early drafts never compare to the end result, and some day I’ll be daring enough to show those too.  Looking forward to the wedding invitation soon!
