Infographic Save the Date with a Timeline and Venn Diagram: Let's Tell 'Em When We're Getting Hitched!


Stop the presses! Hold the phone! Look at this! Our friend Stefanie designed our infographic style Save the Date, and words can't even describe how much I love it. She chose such playful fonts. They really make our story come alive! Keith and I had so much fun reminiscing about our most special times together... and the Man With the Coat story.* We made a list of events and sent them to Stefanie. Then Stefanie helped us edit our timeline to make it more cohesive and give it broader appeal. Because it's not about us, really. I want everyone else to enjoy it, too!

It's going to be on a postcard, and the back of the card lists the wedding location and date: October 5, 2013. 

HOW amazing is Stefanie?!?!?!

* I was gobsmacked-smitten I felt when I first saw The Man With the Coat at Exit/In, but over the next 9 months, his face became a hazy blur. All I remembered were the butterflies in my gut, the coat, and a shaggy haircut. I pined over The Man With the Coat all spring and summer, then started dating Keith in the fall. One night Keith showed up at my house wearing the coat, and my jaw dropped. He didn't have the same hair as The Man With the Coat... But was it him? I casually brought up the show where I first spied him. Yep, Keith was there. I casually brought up haircuts. Over the summer, Keith had cut his hair short for job interviews. I'D BEEN DATING THE MAN WITH THE COAT FOR A MONTH! I am so having a wedding portrait done wearing my bridal gown and that coat.

  6. I love infographics, and this is terrific. It seems very fitting for y'all as a couple. I cannot accept that Keith does not enjoy cheese. Maybe he doesn't enjoy it as much as you? How does one not like cheese?

    And what an adorable little bit about the velvet coat. A great meet cute and I love the idea for the portrait.

    1. Haha, good call. He likes it, but hot chicken is his THING. And cheese is mine. Though when we were first dating, I totally won him over with fancy cheese plates. :)

    1. Thank you!! Stefanie's work is definitely something special, but you can definitely find someone to make this for you. There are quite a few artists on Etsy who do similar work and customize the graphics for their clients--that's where we got the idea. :)
