With engagement season very much upon us, what better time to indulge in some totally stunning engagement announcement inspiration? We’ve said goodbye to the stuffy, stilted save the dates from years gone by — modern save the dates are not only chic, they really let your personality shine through. Our friends at Minted have come up with a wealth of announcement inspiration, breathtakingly styled by the Aisle Society. The outfits, the background, the details — these are definitely swoon-worthy at every turn!
This shoot featured a glamorous pair dancing their way through the stunning streets and rooftops of Chicago. The use of a jaw-dropping little black dress and classic suit is such a sophisticated, modern twist — and the range of photos shows how you can really let your announcement showcase who you are as a couple. Playful? Serious? Romantic? There are so many different options for a bespoken engagement session when you’ve got the right photographer and the right look. They also used little details to give a hint of the wedding to come — we didn’t miss those little snips of greenery and flowers, totally genius!
As for the save the dates themselves, Minted’s use of color and foil are perfect for the modern couple. Go with classic black or shine things up with gold accents, make your photo the center of attention or focus on the clean, modern typography — the combinations are endless! If you’ve seen enough of those forced smiles and awkward announcements, this is definitely the black-tie alternative for a savvy, sophisticated couple. If you’re recently engaged, don’t be afraid to break the mold with a Save the Date by Minted that not only really represents you as a couple, but also gives your guests a little taste of what they can expect from your big day. It’s the first moment you’re announcing yourselves to the world as an engaged couple — so why not do it in style?
With all these gorgeous options to choose from, we know you may have a difficult time deciding which Save the Date design is right for you. So drop by Minted to be blown away —we absolutely guarantee that you will love them all!
