- Wedding: October 2010
My grandmother is an artist, and drew a sketch of the Williamsburg Bridge for us. She actually went down to our reception venue to sketch from there! This bridge has actually been a big part of our relationship, since I grew up in Manhattan, and FI grew up in Brooklyn. We traveled across it all the time to see each other, and now that we live together in Brooklyn, we travel across it together!
I added the wording to the sketch and printed it out on thin white cardstock. I then mounted it on brown cardstock to give it more weight.
Behind that, I mounted our magnets on another piece of brown cardstock. Our magnets feature one of our pictures from our engagement session in Central Park. I’ve blurred out our wedding website on the bottom of the magnet. I designed the magnets myself, and then ordered them through Magnet Street Weddings. To the left of the magnet, I wrote personalized messages to each guest in gold ink.
When I got to the post office yesterday to buy stamps, I realized that my save the dates were heavy enough to need 61 cent stamps. Whoops! At least I was able to get cute wedding cake stamps! Overall, I’m really happy with how they turned out!
