6 Unique Save-the-Date Trends That are Timeliness

Want to make a statement with your save-the-dates? All you need is a design inspired by these can’t-miss trends! From wooden details to postcard-style designs, these of-the-moment stationery trends will be a welcome addition to your guests’ fridges.


Who says your save-the-dates have to be a plain old card? Your guests will remember the date every time they open a book!

2. Illustrations

A hand-sketched illustration gives your card instant personality — and if it’s of an iconic part of your city, it’s even more personalized.

3. Postcards

For starters, postcards are affordable (no envelopes!!). But more than that, the classic postcard-style illustrations are perfect for save-the-dates — especially for destination weddings!

4. Hand-stamped messages

These save-the-dates sure are a labor of love, but the hand-stamped lettering can’t be beat.

5. Wooden magnets

Wooden details are popular in all things weddings, but this one is extra special because it’s a magnet. How cool is that?

6. Hand lettering

We’ve been teaching modern pointed pen workshops & helping beginners get immersed into the art with our online education and quality supply shop for about 5 years now, but did you know that handwritten wedding work was my first foray into the pointed pen myself over 16 years ago?! 🖋💕 – It’s crazy to think about much the wedding industry & my own business have evolved over that period, but I still endlessly love adding my personal touch to your envelopes & day of pieces {these gorgeous menus double as place cards!}. – For details on my handwritten work for your own envelopes & more, head to lhcalligraphy.com or send us an email. We can’t wait to work with you! {real time video; teal pen holder & slate grey ink via our online shop} #lhcvideos
