What’s your Save the Date style?

For many couples, the first step of working on their wedding stationery is creating their save the dates. Since wedding invitations set the tone for the wedding, and many couples choose to have save the dates that coordinate with their invitations for a unified event look. Other couples use their save the date as a chance to use photography or show off some personality.

Kate and Alex’s Save the Date postcard featured a painting from a family member of their wedding venue.

Leah and Evan’s save-the-date postcards featured art that coordinated with their trifold invitation.

Rachel and Will’s save the date featured a stylized map of Oahu, which was reprised on their map.

Emily and Satya’s save the date related partially to their invitations included useful information for guests, and pointed to their wedding website.

Daisy and Jeremy’s save the date card featured a small magnet that could be removed from its backing card and placed on their guests’ refrigerators. The venue-inspired pattern we made was also used on their invitations.



Engagement Photography

Sara and Brian chose engagement photography that also served to point to their wedding destination. Their invitation made use of our Signature Collection: San Francisco Skyline design.

From its hot pink envelope to its sassy photograph and gold foil accents, Octavian and Holly’s save the date let its guests know a lot about the fun tone of the wedding.

Caitlyn and Andrew used an engagement photo and foil “Save the Date” on one side of a postcard mailed with a custom stamp.

The pink watercolor background was reprised in their invitations’ envelope liners.

Postcards are a way to make Save the Dates feel personal and a little casual.


Custom Illustration

We made custom illustration portraits of Jessica and Ben (and their whole wedding party for their programs). We also made a custom stamp for their save-the-date postcards.

Consulting with Courtney and Matt and looking over their photographs, we suggested a custom double portrait that’s pared down to only the essential, recognizable details.

Katie and Lee were the first to commission San Francisco skyline invitations from us, and they had their Save the Dates letterpress printed along with the rest of their invitation suite.

Amy & Clay were throwing a Kentucky-Derby-themed wedding in San Francisco. We made a custom illustration that combined these disparate ideas for their Save the Date.

Many couples have chosen our Signature Collection: San Francisco Skyline invitation designs, modifying color and typography to make them their own.
