Picture Perfect Save the Date

photo save the date

We see a variety of save the date styles come through our shop, but some of our favorites include a snapshot of the bride and groom to be. Using a photo from your engagement session is a great way to personalize your save the date and make it completely your own. Take a peek at some of the different ways we have printed these type of save the dates below!


Kelsey and Mark decided to go for a dramatic black and white photo that covered the entirety of their save the date with a splash of Gold Matte foil for an added wow factor.  They also decided to add a botanical cartouche that held their monogram which can be easily carried over to other paper goods likes invitations and day of pieces for consistency.  Save the dates are also a great place to include any website information so that your guests can get a sneak peek of what’s to come! We’re so glad we got the chance to work with Jenny’s Paper, Ink to make this save the date come to life.

Martha and AJ’s Pawley’s Island wedding was announced using a save the date with a mint watercolor pattern, gold foil wording justified to the right, and their photo perfectly framed to the left. This sweet save the date set the tone for their spring affair and it couldn’t have come together without the help of our friends at Just Paper and Tea.

Thanks to the help of  The Write Touch, this Florida couple opted for an oversized save the date with sprawling Gold Matte foil text displayed across their photo. The bright pink from the bride to be’s dress gave this save the date an extra punch of unexpected color. They paired their save the date with our Pearl pattern envelope liner for a final touch of playfulness.

Polished foil stamped wedding invitations with navy letterpress accents

Meresa and Eric got married this past December at the Omni Amelia Island Plantation. These polished foil stamped wedding invitations beautifully reflect their resort in Amelia Island, Florida. The invitation was printed in our Navy letterpress color and Gold Mate foil stamping accents on our gray paper, a color combination that creates an elegant overall aesthetic. The color palette was also carried onto the insert cards as well as onto the belly-band which featured a monogram in honor of Meresa and Eric. Throughout the suite, little botanical elements were added throughout the suite to add a romantic touch to this formal suite. The gold matte envelope liner tied everything together effortlessly with the help of Creative Touch.

Playful watercolor wedding invitations printed in gold foil

Justine and Jones took our Bloomsbury design and made it into something completely their own for their October affair. These playful watercolor wedding invitations were printed in our Gold Matte foil with dreamy florals added in a palette of pinks as the backdrop. To include a little bit of whimsy, foil stamped polka dots were incorporated throughout the suite. The rehearsal dinner set was kept safe and sound in a corresponding sleeve to give the set a little extra dose of individuality. Guests will be pleasantly surprised to find this same theme carried onto the welcome tags and thank you set as well. This spirited set wouldn’t have been possible without the help of No Regrets- OK and we have no doubt the wedding of Justine and Jones came together just as beautifully as their suite.

Vibrant foil stamped Bat Mitzvah invitations

Our playful Confetti design set the stage for Lindsey’s celebration this past November. We worked with The Write Occasion to create these vibrant foil stamped Bat Mitzvah invitations. The design includes touches of a whimsical script font in gold matte foil combined with confetti accents in shades of purple and turquoise. We were thrilled to see our revel pattern printed in gold foil over a digitally printed flood of violet ink on the envelope liner as a fun way to wrap it all up. There’s nothing better than incorporating different yet complementary patterns into a suite to create a show-stopper like this!

Light lavender Barnesly wedding invitations

Alexis and David chose to customize our Barnesly wedding invitations for their July celebration at the Ritz-Carlton in Aruba. Petite save the date cards were printed in gold matte foil and slipped inside luggage tags to help set the tone for their destination wedding. For the main invitation, we switched things up by changing the watercolor artwork to a pale shade of lavender, and swapped the script font from the original design with a more formal script. Metallic glass envelope liners added a subtle touch of shimmer to these elegant wedding invitations.

Navy + gold pineapple wedding invitations

Danielle and Jeffrey worked with our friends at Lion in the Sun to create chic navy and gold pineapple wedding invitations for their Montego Bay celebration in May. We letterpress printed their invitations in navy ink, and highlighted their names with gold matte foil. Bold navy striped envelope liners reflected the seaside locale, while the gold pineapple motif gave a nod to the Round Hill Resort logo. We created a navy combination card that invited guests to both the welcome dinner and the farewell brunch, which resulted in a beautiful layered effect when the invitations were assembled and wrapped with their bellybands.
