Graduate save-the-date


My sister's friends Becky and Danny made this amazing save-the-date video for their wedding. It was inspired by the final scene of The Graduate. Aren't they geniuses?! I love their faces at the end.

(I posted this four years ago, but wanted to repost because it's so awesome.)

I love it! So sweet and beautiful. I love Becky running around in that wedding dress! My husband made our save the date video last year, he works in animation, and I remember being so stressed out about what to do, what to shoot, what to wear. In the end we made a really great video focusing on our favorite place in NYC, Brooklyn. We live here, we were getting married here and we wanted to show off our fabulous borough! Becky's and Danny's was very touching and creative!

Love the movie but as exciting as the scene was, didn't it somewhat end in regret, confusion, anxiety, etc.? Dont' know if I'd want this for my Save the Date!

Alejandra said...

That is super clever! They did such a great job executing it, too. I hope they're happily married right now!

I remember this! Thanks for posting it again. The best save the date I saw recently was a video from a couple I met at a wedding who spoofed a bunch of iconic Chicagoland commercials from the 80s. So funny!

Manding, haha, i think the awkwardness is what makes it such a funny idea for a save the date:) they were trying to be funny/offbeat:)

ahhh...my husband and i had our first date 17 years ago watching this movie. the next night he left a note on my door in the middle of the night that just said my name over and over. for us, that's the most romantic movie there is. i love what your friends did!

penelope said...

and i believe the ending is beautiful because it's real. no riding off into the sunset on a unicorn...
