Plaid seems to be everywhere these days. It seems like every college frat guy has a closet filled with plaid variations and every woman owns at least one Burberry knockoff.
And you know what? We have embraced this trend with open arms! … We have a Mad About Plaid Save the Date design for all you plaid lovers out there. The circular Save the Date card particularly struck a cord with me…
It was a Saturday afternoon and I was on my way to get my much needed caffeine fix, and as I went to open the door to the coffee shop, a woman was coming out at the same time.
We both stopped for a moment, looking puzzled before we both broke out into laughter. Turns out we were wearing the exact same shirt: a black and red plaid button up. And I don’t mean we were wearing similar shirts, I mean we were wearing the exact same shirt, thread for thread! (turns out it was a women’s shirt – I thought it was a remarkably fitted shirt for a man…)
Granted, the first 10 minutes of our conversation were spent playfully accusing the other person of wearing clothes made for the wrong gender, but I have to say it got us talking. Using an inside joke or a personal story like my plaid mishap could be just the inspiration you need to add that personal touch to your Save the Dates.
