Christina + Aaron’s Quirky “Awkward Family Photo” Save the Dates

Sometimes we just need a reminder of happy occasions, silly memories, or a little something to make us laugh. Enter these quirky and silly save the dates from Patti Murphy Design Boutique & Paperie. Christina and Aaron wanted to play off the idea of an awkward family photo, so Patti designed a postcard-size save the date incorporating a custom rubber stamp. Definitely made me smile!

From Patti: Christina and Aaron wanted their save the dates to correspond with their personalities: fun, light-hearted, quirky, and silly. To achieve this, they collaborated with photographer Michelle Gardella and decided on the “awkward family photo” pose, incorporating gold wire-frame glasses with an ugly sweater theme. The photo was also turned into a magnet save the date.

Not wanting to take anything away from the effect of the photo, Christina and Aaron wanted a simple design. I decided on white postcards, and added the gold corners to accentuate the photo.  I created a custom stamp with the event details—made the wording fun and silly to match their personalities, but also simple and to-the-point—and then used black ink to contrast with the white postcard.

The envelopes were designed in the same simple fashion with custom “to” and “from” stamps.
