The save the date is a relatively modern invention (early 20th century, that is), but your guests don’t need to know that. Find classic save the dates that bring the timelessly lovely traditions of wedding stationery to your ceremony’s first mailing. Start the celebration with stately typography and architectural borders or opt for more romantic flourishes. Calligraphy and scripted type illuminate your message of love with handsome detail. Keep another wedding tradition in mind and consider opting for fine paper save the dates with the expressively tactile finish of thermography, engraving, or letterpress printing. Once you choose a save the date that suits your ceremony, use our online design tool to customize the final details.
Our collection includes save the dates from wedding aficionados like Vera Wang and stationers like Crane & Co. in case you’re in need of any additional expertise. If you’d prefer a bit more hands-on assistance, our Personal Design Services team is here to guide you through every step of planning your wedding stationery. Whether it’s making a few tweaks to an existing design’s color scheme, adding artwork from your collection, or having us develop custom monograms and illustrations, we’ll make every part of your ceremony singular—from the save the date to the thank you notes.
Your stationery’s aesthetic may take inspiration from a fin de siècle fete, but you can still make use of a few present-day luxuries. Before you send out your save the dates, use an online address collection card to gather your guests’ mailing addresses. Just assemble a list of your recipients’ email addresses via the online address book or import them from your own email account, send your request, and let your guests fill in the pertinent information on an enclosed online reply card. (Our online save the dates can do this in advance of your invitations, too.) Once you collect those mailing addresses, they’re yours to use on the wedding invitations, thank you notes, and any other correspondence you have in mind. We can even pre-address the envelopes, in case you’d rather concentrate on the arrangements—floral and otherwise.
