Photo save the dates

Photo save the dates are a great way to share engagement photos with family and friends while giving them a heads on your wedding date and location. They’re also an ideal way to share your wedding website, which can include directions, accommodations, photos, sweet stories, registry info, and more. Today we’re sharing a few of our favorite photo save the dates to give you some ideas on ways to customize your own!

Samantha and Thomas selected a romantic blush color palette for their July wedding. The couple celebrated at the bride’s family home, and worked with Sweet Paper to customize our Chapman suite.

Finishing touches included our pink vintage rose patterned envelope liners and corner rounding for a soft, polished look.

Sophisticated rose gold wedding invitations

We’re still all about the ever-popular metallic trend, and can’t get enough of the gold, silver, and copper invitations we’ve been printing these days. One of our favorite shiny metallic looks though? Rose gold – which is why we love this take on our Spence design. Ariel and Joshua worked with Marissa Allie Designs to create their rose gold wedding invitations and reply cards. We printed subtle envelope liners with our vintage world map pattern in jute to match. We love the end result!

Striped letterpress wedding invitations + social notes

We customized our Fremont design for Ryan and Christopher’s autumn wedding at the Brant Point Lighthouse on Nantucket Island. Their letterpress suite was printed in olive ink, and we created striped envelope liners in olive and sage inks to complement the stripes used throughout the set. In addition to the invitations, we created folded social notes with a simple monogram, website cards, an events card, and reply postcards. Each piece featured varying stripe designs, and our oak leaf motif added a seasonal touch to these simple yet sophisticated wedding invitations.

Patriotic Letterpress Moving Announcements

We created these fun moving announcements for the Sonneborn family’s move from California to the nation’s capital. The folded card included a funny list of what’s in and out for the family — some of our favorites included power hoodies for power suits, and Silicon Valley for Scandal. The inside of the card shared the family’s new address, with a note to please visit soon. A custom envelope liner complete with iconic DC buildings added an extra patriotic finishing touch.
