Wedding Trends: Save the Dates

shutterfly header

Spring is in the air and that means wedding season is right around the corner!  Woohoo!  I get emails frequently from soon to be brides, looking for advice on planning and designing their big day.  One of my favorite things to tell them is that it’s not difficult to personalize this most personal of occasions.  With the right vendors in your pocket, you can create a beautiful, personal event that’s both stylish and memorable.  If you are a bride-to-be, Shutterfly might just become your best friend. 😉  With tons of gorgeous designs, varying card sizes, shapes and trim options, the possibilities are nearly endless.  Not to mention the customizable back of card designs and the foil stamped text that is totally on trend.  Even the pickiest bride is sure to find something that fits their style and the best part?  It’s super easy to create yourself!

Another bit of advice I like to give my brides…take time to think through the message and feel you want to give your guests about your wedding and how you want to be represented as a couple.  Starting with the very first communication to the last, Save the Dates to Thank You Notes, you want everything to reflect that same feel guests can expect at your ceremony.  Here are a few of the gorgeous Save the Dates I love to get you started!

I used the gold foil stamped cards for my Christmas cards and they were beautiful!  I’ve been seeing more silver popping up all over and I’m falling in love with it all over again.  Combine that gorgeous foil stamping with a great trim and you have a beautiful combination.

With as much effort as you put into getting the perfect engagement photos, I love that you can really make them shine on these Save the Dates. The pearlized paper is a great option to add a little extra “oomph” to your design.
