Trendspotting: New York

Save the Date, NY-Style

The Idea: When Scottish couple Wendy Jack and Kenneth Aitchison decided on New York City as the location for their intimate destination wedding, they wanted a fun and stylish way to get the word out to their 15 guests. Inspired by the city's energy and imagery, the couple sent guests these elaborate invitations by Robin K Design and Tara DeLeeuw of Oh So Fabulous!: yellow boxes tied with a black-and-white checkered ribbon and a taxicab charm. They also included a pamphlet filled with things to see and do while in the Big Apple.

Why We Love It: Invitations that emphasize your wedding location can help set the tone for things to come—and get guests excited about what's in store.
