Handmade custom invitations & stationery
by Kristy Rice
Ready to get your guests excited for the big day? What better way than to send out illustrated custom watercolor save the dates to let them know what’s going on!
Our collection of save the dates has ranged over the years from sweet and simple to elaborately gifted.
Inviting everyone on an adventure? Save the Dates are a great place to set the scene for where your wedding will happen. Showcase a beautiful watercolor landscape or venue illustration, or incorporate some local flair in the details. Watercolor landscapes continue to be one of our most popular options, they are a tiny piece of art sent to each guest. We have even created a passport booklet with all the event details, to get guests in the mood to travel!
Sending a glimpse of of the wedding locale creates excitement!
In a similar way, a fun illustrated map of the area around your venue is a great customized surprise. Give recommendations for activities, or outline locations that are special to you and your fiance.
Or, send a more personalized card with a picture of yourselves. Feature one of your engagement photos with some artistic detail or two.
If photos aren’t your style, a watercolored version of the two of you – and maybe a pet – is a cute customization.
And if you really want to go all the way, we have even made customized boxes to gift cookies or macarons to your guests.
Save the dates are so much fun because they don’t have to be as formal as the invitation! You can play with color and artwork here, even the if the invitation itself will be formal or black tie.
No matter which route you choose, guests will love receiving these first peeks into your big celebration! Be sure to check out lots of options in our Save the Date gallery here.
