Mixbook is known for great save-the-date cards, and two popular past posts – one on making gorgeous season-appropriate save-the-dates and one about creating fun-loving save-the-dates – summarized some of the best designs, plus a few tips for making yours unique. Well, Mixbook is at it again with some great new designs created to capture some of the top trends for a wedding-date announcement that’s fresh, fun and totally you.
Heart Collage It’s not often you and your other half get to participate in a photo shoot that’s all about capturing all that’s lovely between you as a couple – and all that’s beautiful about you as individuals. That’s why it can sometimes be hard to choose just one final picture to feature in an engagement announcement or save-the-date card. A fabulous way to show off all the great photos in your engagement photo shoot is by choosing a collage layout. Mixbook’s Heart Collage cleverly forms a series of pics into a heart. Use the reverse of the card to showcase a larger version your very favorite shot.
Past, Present, Future Perfect Everyone loves to picture the bride-and-groom-to-be as kids. There must be something about the innocence of childhood set off against the earnestness of true love – along with the dream of future babies that look a little like each of you – that elicits such a powerful response. Mixbook’s Past – Present – Future card has room for kid pics next to a couple portrait on a hip chalkboard background. The Sweethearts save-the-date card displays two great kid pics on the front, which lets you use the reverse to feature a large engagement photo.
Stars of the Show For the betrothed with a penchant for all things theatrical, there’s nothing like taking the opportunity to play to your audience, otherwise known as friends and family. Use your best couple shot – approved by your publicist, of course – then roll the presses with a little help from Mixbook, and send word of the big event far and wide. Your fan base will eat it up! But be sure not to let the word get out to the paparazzi…
The Big Countdown What’s a save-the-date card if not a kick-off to the big countdown? Go with the theme and tick off the top five relationship milestones that got you so close to happily ever after. . . . Go conventional by adding dates related to your major relationship milestones, or change the wording to be just a little bit irreverent and fun-loving.
Art Deco I Do Set the stage for a roaring good time with a vintage-themed save-the-date card. All the more apt if you plan to throw a Gatsby-themed wedding, Mixbook’s Art Deco save-the-date card is the perfect way to get guests excited for a little glitz and glamour. It also tips them off that now would be the right time to start shopping for feather headpieces and boater hats. Customize yours with the broad-stroke details of your big day, and customize the reverse with a couple portrait, plus perhaps a quote from one of the great American writers: I love her and that’s the beginning and end of everything” ~ F. Scott Fitzgerald.
However you choose to send your news – congratulations! We wish you joyous anticipation and a wonderful wedding day. Happy Mixbooking!
