Megan + Mike’s Chevron Stripe and Stitched Save the Dates

Megan from Ruby the Fox sent over the save the dates for her wedding this fall, and I’m completely in love with every. single. detail. From the lovely calligraphy to the zig zag stitching to the chevron stripe envelope liner – the entire concept had me at hello. And even with all of those details, Megan manages to pull everything together into a save the date that is creative yet simple and elegant in its presentation.

From Megan:  When I got engaged in October to my amazing boyfriend of seven years, I knew I would be designing my own paper suite!  With an October Chicago wedding in the works, and a color palette of “muted Autumn” I knew I wanted the Save the Dates to portray our fun personalities but also be a preview to what our eclectic, organic wedding would bring.

The inserts were letterpress printed with grey ink onto basic white luggage tags and tied with inexpensive jute twine.  The calligraphy was done by the insanely talented Angelique Phillips of Angelique Ink.

Each of the cards were sewn, lovingly, by my mom with peach thread.  They were then slipped beneath a thin vellum strip.  The outcome was exactly what I had hoped for: a fun and creative yet elegant preview to the upcoming festivities!

  1. These are so delicate and beautiful. I love how she carried out the zig zag through out the whole suite. Cant wait too see her invites!

  2. Can you share your fonts and sizes with us? I’m also curious about the size of the manila tag…

  3. Hi Meredith! The block font is MrsEaves and the script is calligraphy by Angelique, Ink! The hang tag itself is 2 5/8 by 5 1/2! I got the tags from Tags & Labels! I hope that helps :)
