Save the Date

Sending a save the date isn’t really a British tradition, but it was something I was keen to do because I was impatient to start designing my stationery! My first thoughts were very watercolour and floral, which I realised was very ‘me’ but not very ‘us’. So I went back to the drawing board and tried to put as much ‘us’ in it as possible, and this was the result. The back of the postcard has a watercolour wash and delicate hand lettering and the front is pure ‘us’. I have loved handing these to family and friends and seeing their reactions!
