Get the Look: Custom Wedding Save-the-Date Alterations to ‘Modern Laurel’

Halloween is upon us, and we’re dreaming up a darkly elegant wedding evening. We’re inspired by a handful of classical moody imagery for this latest post in our ongoing Alterations series. Starting with a save-the-date from one of our classic wedding invitation suites, we’ve mixing with the macabre to create a custom wedding save-the-date Alfred Hitchcock himself would love!

Set the scene with a classy if slightly sinister table setting. You might find Ichabod Crane himself seated beside you! Dish up a slice of red velvet cake frosted in black roses; catch a glimpse of the bride in tightly coiffed curls; ascend a grand spiral staircase like the famous yet dizzying one in the Queens House where it’s said ghosts still haunt today. What a nightmare not to receive this save-the-date!
