Selecting Save The Dates

wedding-save-the-dates-heartI hate to say it, but in my life, I’ve probably sent more Evites than printed invitations. Birthdays, house warmings, dinner parties have all fallen to virtual letterpress–but weddings, this is where I will draw the line. Our big day is nearly six months away and that means it’s time to hunt for pretty Save the Dates.

I’ve browsed around on a bunch of different stationery sites but in terms of selection, pricing, and convenience, Wedding Paper Divas has definitely impressed me the most. They represent some of my favorite boutique stationers like Oh Joy and Cat Seto but back them with around-the-clock customer service, quick shipping, and an online editing system for easy customization.

In narrowing down our options for our Vermont winter wedding, we wanted something that hinted at the snowy season and rustic venue but without the obvious snowflake and pine cone conventions. Here are the five designs we’ve narrowed it down to (colors and fonts come later); let us know your favorites!

    Cupid's Mark is my fav! Who wouldn't want to keep that on their fridge for the next few months!? Love it.

    My vote is speckled stones. simple, and says winter to me without snowflakes and santa (Which would rock btw!)

    Definitely the first one… it has a nice subtle suggestion of snow. I do like the 3rd one too — that's a great shade blue.
