Apple Orchard Save the Dates

When the oh-so-talented Carrie MacMillan-Lane of Storied Events out of Vermont contacted me to work with her bride and groom on this save the date, I was super excited! This was something I had never done before and couldn't wait to get started! The bride and groom are having their reception at Shelburne Farms in Shelburne, Vermont. It is a historic, working farm with apple orchards.

Carried came up with the great idea of making the save the dates out of actual produce bags that you get when you go to pick apples. I had custom stamps made to give it that "authentic" look and hand stamped each bag.

Inside the bag, we included an accommodations card with all of the lodging information.

The bag was then folded up, sealed together with circle labels and mailed! No envelopes needed. Finally, wedding stamps from the post office that actually match my design.
