My husband and I got lucky when we got married. I don’t mean in the sense that we were lucky to have found each other amongst a sea of bitter divorcees, although we certainly were. I mean, we eloped on Feb. 2, 2020. Fast forward a month and a half, and the entire world was shut down due to Covid. Our originally planned wedding reception for June of that year was pushed to July of 2021, only to have *that* date pushed even further into the future. So when I say we got lucky by getting married when we did, I really mean it.
We had already sent out save the dates for the June wedding, which obviously didn’t happen. Now it’s time to send a *second* save the date, but how to quickly explain why guests are getting a re-invite, even though we’re already married, and what to expect at said event.
It was time to get creative. Save the dates can be fun and more informal than traditional wedding invites (although we’re bucking tradition with those as well…). Postcards are cheaper to send than regular mail, and, designed well, can quickly get your point across.
Keeping with roughly the same color scheme as our original save the dates, I designed our second save the date postcard to be cute, clever, and informative.
