Vintage Postcard Save The Date

About a year ago, my brother orchestrated a beautiful proposal to his girlfriend at Grand Central in New York City. And not long after, my soon-to-be sister-in-law asked me to design their Save The Dates.

We sat down over Thanksgiving to discuss her vision, and of course, I did plenty of Pinterest stalking. Her Pinterest boards were gorgeous. They contained lots of soft pinks, sage greens and neutrals, as well as plenty of vintage cues.

Fast forward a few weeks and a couple of design options, and here is what they chose:

Letter19Design_VintagePostCard_SaveTheDate_Front

Letter19Design_VintagePostCard_SaveTheDate_Back

The photo on the front of the postcard was taken by Brigid’s sister the day they got engaged. And the postcard ornamentation on the back includes an illustration of the famous Grand Central Terminal clock, set to 6:21 to symbolize the date of their wedding.

If you dig this design, a similar one will soon be for sale on my revamped Etsy page. Coming soon. So keep your eyes peeled!
