We might be a little biased when it comes to our love of different papers, but your choice can make all the difference to your wedding stationery.

First, think about the general type of theme you’d like for your wedding- don’t worry, it doesn’t have the be anything specific at the moment. If you’d prefer something rustic, then stocks like Kraft can give a real earthy flair. If you’re dead set on an environmentally conscious day, you can create eco-conscious Save the Dates on stocks like Recycled Silk or Acquerello. Perhaps you want something as 24 karat as your day and would enjoy the shimmering luxury tones of papers like Ice Gold or enjoy something eye-catching and unique like the softness of Vellum.

With 18 different paper stocks to choose from, have a browse and find your perfect match!

2. Keep it concise

Think carefully about the information you want to put on your Save the Dates. Since they’re not the full Invitations, you don’t have to worry about cramming in too much information, even if you have some of the details planned already.

Save the Dates are… just that! A notice the save the date. It’s a good idea to make the date itself the focal point of the design and you can emphasise it with a bold colour choice or a special finish. The fact that it is a ‘Save the Date’ should also be present- and make sure not to forget your names! Otherwise, no one will know who they’re booking the time off for!

3. Standout with Special Finishes

Perhaps you’re looking for something completely out of the box! If you have a specific vision you’d like to bring to life, make sure to have a chat to our Bespoke Team who will be more than happy to help create your perfect card.
