Bridal Shower Gift Idea:
The Year We Said "I Do" Cards

I have two bridal showers to attend this month, so I was clicking around Etsy yesterday, looking for some cute bridal shower cards to include with my gifts, when I came upon the Double Bravo Designs shop. Brooklyn-based designer Barbara Buenz (who is very sweet, by the way!) makes these awesome fill-in-the-blank letterpress cards for newlyweds, based on the city the couple lives in and the year they're marrying. Touted as a "time capsule and future family heirloom" the cards feature different categories for the couple to fill in, like the name of their favorite takeout spot or the cost of a subway ride, all tailored to various cities (London, New York, Portland, Chicago, San Francisco, and Los Angeles). It's such an adorable way for couples to remember what was going on in their lives the year they married. I decided I had to snap up the Chicago and NYC versions for my soon-to-be-married friends! The 5x7 cards are $6.25 each, and are available at —Lauren Matthews
