Nicole + Chris’s Watercolor Photo Save the Dates

It’s so fun to include an engagement photo on a wedding save the date – especially when done in a modern and refreshing way, like these save the dates from Alex of Goodheart Design!


From Alex: Over the past couple years, I have done tons of save the date styles that entailed lettering over an engagement photo and making it into a cute postcard or fold over card. This time I wanted to put a creative spin on it! I wanted to still include the engagement photo but I didn’t want it to be the main focus of the design or be printed on glossy photo paper. I loved the idea of each one being slightly different so I individually watercolored the front of each save the date! The front was gold foil printed on 110# Fluorescent Lettra paper and the back was digitally printed on the same paper and then duplexed together by Czar Press. I also really loved the idea of showcasing the lettering in two different mediums, gold foil and digital printing. Each one was placed in an off-white envelope and addressed in gold ink.





Thanks Alex!
