Supreme Save the Date with Tie the Knot.org

Supreme Save the Date: Bow Tie Heart / Designed by Lupa and Pepi for Tie the Knot.org
Tie the Knot is an organization that sells limited edition bow ties with proceeds supporting organizations that fight for civil rights of gay and lesbian Americans. Founded by Jesse Tyler Ferguson (of Modern Family fame!) and his husband Justin Mikita, the organization advocates for "a more stylish and equal America". With the Supreme Court currently hearing arguments on marriage equality, Tie the Knot is launching a campaign called Supreme Save the Date to raise awareness and make a powerful statement. A few weeks ago we were lucky enough to be invited to take part! 

Lupa & Pepi contributed save the date designs which are available for personalization on Supreme Save the Date's website! Couples can select a design and input their names, wedding date, and the state in which they live. They can even address their save the date to a Supreme Court justice! In turn, Tie the Knot will print and deliver all of the save the dates to the Supreme Court while they're making their decision — a powerful message that we're proud to be a part of!

Guess what? Great news! Paper versions of each of the save the dates we designed for the Supreme Save the Date campaign along with matching wedding suites are
available for a limited time in our shop for personalization and ordering! Place and order and a portion of the proceeds will go towards Tie the Knot! ***UPDATE: Although these limited edition invitation suites are no longer available in our online shop, we can accommodate special orders. Just email us at bella@lupaandpepi.com and let us know you'd like more info!***

The save the date at the top of this post entitled "Bow Tie Heart" was inspired by the motto upon which Tie the Knot is founded —"advocating for a more stylish and equal America". Other save the date layouts we designed are inspired by colors and symbolism associated with the cause. There are also two that are inspired by papergood suites in our very own shop — Geometrica and Petalo (see below)!

We were honored to be a part of this campaign. Hopefully very soon everyone will be able to say "I do"!
