I know that my partner and I could not be more different: I am a creative type, he is a logical type; I love vintage designs, he loves more modern designs; I love to read, he loves to snowboard. Does this situation sound familiar to you?
Don’t get me wrong, I do not think my partner and I could possibly be better matched! Our differences are fabulous and actually, I think they work to make us appreciate each other’s uniqueness even more.
However, when you have such large personality differences between you and your partner, it does make it a little more difficult when it comes to selecting Save the Dates that speak to your personalities. Well, I have a solution!
There is always something … at least one thing that you can use to represent the two of you well. Instead of trying to find something that defines both of your personalities (I’m telling you ladies, I think in some cases this may actually be impossible!), use activities that you have done together for inspiration. Think back to your first date together, and events that you have experienced with your partner. Brainstorm about the funny situations you two have found yourself in.
Maybe you and your partner go way back – like awkward teenage years back. One of my best guy friends met his future wife when she asked him to dance during a middle school dance. Long story short, the love birds have been a match made in heaven ever since. They chose the Love Mix Save the Date to bring a retro flair to their wedding that is perfectly suited to their memorable first meeting.
Or maybe you are like a girlfriend of mine who met her husband at a line dancing bar while on vacation in Houston. A perfect Save the Date for her would be this adorable Under the Hat Save the Date design. What better way to pay homage to their dancing beginnings than by selecting a cowboy hat Save the Date?
