Save the Dates for Creative Brides

A save the date is the first impression of your overall wedding tone, style, and theme. It can be exciting to give your closest friends and family a glimpse into your big day.  A little stressful, but mostly exciting.

Since many save the dates are sent six months in advance, chances are you are still trying nail down your overall wedding style when browsing for the best design to send. You are searching for hours for something that is unique but not to obscure, trendy but not too popular. It can be pretty hard to stand out when every bride seems to be sending the same stationary styles from the exact same sites.

When Paperlust sent us an email about their company, we first thought they were just another invitation website but were we so wrong. is made for the creative. As an online luxury event stationery company, they provide a platform for independent designers to showcase and sell their work and bring you customized designer invitations. Bottom line, this means you get a design that is totally unique. Pretty cool, right?

We did a little digging of our own and found a few beautiful and creative save the dates that could set that amazing first impression.  All the save the dates below above are available ready-made.  But, the best part of Paperlust is the ability for you to work directly with a designer who can create a custom design just for you. If you have something specific in mind but are having trouble finding it, Paperlust makes it easy to submit a custom design request. Simply submit your vision and all the details of color, print type, and quantities and they will send you a quote. It is a pretty cool way to ensure your design is as unique as you.

A typical save the date is one that matches a particular wedding theme. These are a few examples that showcase the ability for Paperlust to generate very simplistic, creative designs. 


One of our favorite save the date designs is a calendar card with the wedding date highlighted. Simple, informative and perfect for any couple that hasn’t quite nailed down their wedding theme.

A great way to showcase your relationship, or even introduce your future spouse, to a family who doesn’t know you well as a couple, is to include photography or a funny quote on your save the date.

Alternatively, there are tons of options to choose a save the date that fits your location. Consider a plane ticket type of card, a luggage tag or a passport for a destination wedding. For a wedding focused on food, create a recipe card or table reservation tag. Get creative, your guests will be excited.

So, before you settle for a standard save the date, step out of the box and consider designer made options at Paperlust.
