You know that you’re going to have fun opening something when the first words that you see after opening the envelope are, “they met in a bar (very fitting).” I love this take on a storybook invitation by Hilary of Lovely and Gracious. She had only been engaged a couple of weeks when she woke up in the middle of the night, inspired to create a save the date that folds out to tell the story of her life with her fiancé and gives her guests information about her upcoming destination wedding in Lake Tahoe.
The story unfolds, both literally and figuratively, after recipients open the envelope and eventually leads to the announcement and save the date magnet (attached in the lower left corner), as well a clever map of the Lake Tahoe area, with icons to showcase where the on the lake wedding activities are taking place and general information and facts about Tahoe. It’s like a save the date and a travel brochure, all rolled into one! Such a fun and clever idea, and I’m sure the recipients had a wonderful time opening these special save the dates.
