Weddings are expensive. We hear it time and time again and it’s true! From the invitations to the meals to every table, chair, favor and detail, brides are always looking for ways to save.

Paperlust has the most gorgeous collection of beautiful save the dates and wedding invitations that are personalized, stunning and totally unique! With so many styles ranging from vintage save the dates to retro wedding invitations to rustic save the dates, abstract wedding invitations and so much more, you’re sure to find wedding stationery that totally matches your wedding style.

Click the button link below to browse Paperlust and all of their collections and keep on reading to see why we think printed save the dates are a must!


1. The Personal Touch

We love when brides and grooms make their wedding day their own — make it totally YOU. And since the save the dates are the first wedding detail your guests will see, it’s such a great way to show off your personal style, even months before the wedding rolls around.

Beautiful save the dates are a way to make your guests feel significant and to show them that they are important in your lives. And I mean, who doesn’t love receiving a beautifully addressed save the date in the mail? I know I do!

2. Establishing Your Signature Style

Eclectic, romantic, minimalist or vibrant, select something that peeks at your wedding colors, the theme and feel you’re going for and something that reflects your personal style as a couple. Your save the date is the first element your wedding guests will see and it totally sets the tone for your wedding day!

You’ve been dreaming of this day for years so why not build up a little fun anticipation for your guests as well? It’s all part of the excitement that we all love!

3. A Handy Reminder

We all have calendars we can’t seem to keep track of and printed save the dates work as the perfect visual reminder that your big day is coming up. Your guests can put it on their refrigerator with a magnet so it’s at the forefront of their minds day in and day out. And I don’t know about you, but there’s something about seeing a save the date up there that makes me smile daily — it’s a constant reminder of that happiness and love we all love to celebrate together.
