You met the one, you have the ring, you set the date – now you need to make the big announcement! Save the dates are a great way to let your guests know when you plan on getting married. Save the dates are the first glimpse of what’s to come when it comes to your wedding, so make sure they deliver the style and vibe you’re going for. Save the dates can also be a little less formal than invitations, so this gives you a chance to get creative!

These Sakura (by Maura Gaulthier) save the dates have just a touch of the botanical. Sent to us by our friends at Luxe Expressions, we’re loving the simplistic and sweet feel of these. We adore that the foil stamping is left to only the single flower motif at the very top.

We know we are currently in winter wonderland mode but take a look at this vibrant save the date perfect for a 2012 summer wedding (which is right around the corner)! This quirky custom letterpress save the date was sent to us by our good friends over at Gus & Ruby Letterpress in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. The two cute custom designs matched with our aquamarine ink make for a one of a kind save the date that really stands out. Instead of using our standard A6 save the date size, the couple opted for the smaller (and budget saving) A5 option. The recipients of this card are sure to be pleasantly surprised!

What better way to make sure your guests don’t let your wedding date *ahem* coast by, than with some letterpress save the date coasters? We printed these Carte de Visite (by Ben Whitla) letterpress save the dates and matching coasters in Taupe, Papaya, and Sand inks, and we’ve got to say – we’re really into this color combo.
To make everything in this set as cohesive as possible we also custom designed and letterpress printed an envelope liner that coordinates with the cards and coasters. Between this letterpress envelope liner and the bright Papaya edge painting on the save the date, this set really has some amazing presence when you open the flap (even before you take the pieces out!).
