Wedding Paper Divas – Our Favorite Place to Buy Save the Dates

Posted by tina | Posted in Where to Buy

Tags: ,

A lot has changed since we first started reviewing where to buy Save the Dates in 2009. But our top choice has always been the same — Wedding Paper Divas. Back then and today they offered the best combination of overall value and quality for Save the Date cards. They are now owned by Shutterfly but they are still unique in that they work exclusively with many top designers to develop beautiful Save the date designs for every taste and occasion. The parent company Tiny Prints makes greeting cards, holiday cards and other paper goods and was recently purchased by Shutterfly.

Although, in the past 3 years since we first endorsed them they have added a ton of new products and designs. For many years they focused only on Save the Date cards. But in recent years they have expanded and now offer Save the Date Magnets and also Save the Date Postcards. In addition, they have the largest selection of Save the Dates online.

If you have a particular fancy for your wedding Save the Dates you may just find it at Wedding Paper Divas. They have circle shaped cards, venue based Save the Dates (e.g. tropical beach wedding, New York venue, Napa wine country wedding). The quality of the designs and the paper and envelopes is fantastic and sure to impress your friends and family to make a great impression. You really can’t go wrong in choosing their cards to let your friends and family know about your wedding date.

My Favorite Magnolia Press Save the Date Magnets

Magnolia Press is definitely one of my favorite wedding card designers. Two of her top selling Save the Date magnets are Formal Details which is on the left and Romantic Tab which is on the right. In fact they are often two of the best selling magnets on Wedding Paper Divas in general. It’s tough to go wrong with such classic choices for a wedding card. I really like the smoke coloring of romantic tab and the silver date banner that drops down. And you can pick up to 4 different wedding photos to feature.

The Romantic Tab card also comes in nutmeg and marigold in case you don’t like the smoke color. Another Save the Date magnet we really like is the one below called Stylish Signpost. It comes in bright green or a light blue color called coast.

It has a very simple design with a solid strip and your names above it. Another great classic Save the Date from Magnolia Press.

Save the Date Postcards from Night Owl Paper Goods

Posted by tina | Posted in Save the Date Postcards

Tags: , , ,

We recently discovered these wonderfully organic save the date postcards from Night Owl Paper Goods. Founded by Alan Henderson and Jennifer Tatham, Night Owl Paper Goods features modern, yet folksy save the dates which are full of unexpected whimsical details. The team draws inspiration from Swedish and American folk artists as well as the fantastic colors and charming animals found in nature.

Willowy Wood
We love the look of this beautiful one of a kind postcard. It really makes you feel as if the save the date was made of wood and etched with ever so delicate leaves. You can customize the color of the leaves but our favorite is Almond. Your guests are sure to remember this save the date when it arrives in the mail!

Rustic Refinement
Another one of our favorites from Night Owl Paper Goods is called Rustic Refinement. We love the square shape and rounded corners. The design is so simple, yet so stunning. Don’t forget that square cards will cost you a little extra postage – in this case we think it’s worth the investment!

Save the Dates by East Six Design

East Six Design is a new designer for Wedding Paper Divas. They are based in SoHo and founded by two childhood friends Marina Marchisi and Stacey Mui. They try to create custom wedding invitations that reflect the unique style, vision, and tastes of the bride and groom. They have some great new Save the Dates that I adore.

One of my favorites from East Six features Baroque Scrolls and so is aptly named. It is a romantic design that can be a wonderful touch for your Save the Date card. You can customize it to have a black, eggplant, or blue background. It is featured on the left.

The Save the Date card on the right is called Haute Heraldry and features rounded corners and reminds me of a Broadway playbill poster. It features scrolls that give it an “old time” feel and you can customize it with your wedding date and you and your fiance’s name.

Save the Date Magnets by Baumbirdy

Sarah and Carolyn are the two childhood friends behind Baumbirdy. They are both professional art directors with a keen eye for cleverly made and designed wedding invitations and other paper goods. You can learn more about them and their designs at the Baumbirdy Blog.

Baumbirdy has some great designs. Two of my favorite Baumbirdy Save the Date magnets are listed below.

The first Save the Date magnet above is called Clean Style. Just pick a great photo from your engagement photos and this magnet puts the focus on you and your soon to be groom. The lettering is still elegant and simple in its detail with the white handwriting cursive style.

The magnet above is called Antique Airmail. It is a Save the Date that takes the look of a vintage airmail postcard. In a cute design it takes the postmark stamp and turns that into the date of your wedding. And you can include a few photos that are made to look like stamps in the postcard. It’s a wonderful design. I heart Baumbirdy!They are just starting out so hopefully they will add new Save the Date designs soon.

More Save the Date Magnets by Petite Alma

Petite Alma Save the Dates are so great I had to feature her Save the Date magnets again. Kirby Alma is the designer behind Petite Alma. She has a wonderful flair for simple style that is combined with a Parisian influence she honed while working in Paris.

Two of my favorites are listed below. The first Save the Date magnet on the left is called Beach Flowers and it features a beautiful aqua blue orchid flower. This is perfect for a tropical or beach themed wedding. I really like the aqua blue cursive of your and your fiance’s names.

The card on the right is called Stylish Script and is just has in simple script “Save the Date” in black calligraphy writing. If you want a simple magnet to just announce your wedding nuptials this is a good choice.

The photo Save the Date magnet on the upper right is called sophisticated hand. You just choose a favorite engagement photo and it looks fabulous with the white script and banner with your wedding information. If you prefer a non photo Save the Date the option on the right is called Cupids Mark. It has a cute drawing of a heart with an arrow through it. So adorable!

Chinese Save the Date Cards

Posted by tina | Posted in Blog

Tags: , , ,

Are you having a traditional Chinese wedding and banquet? Have you been searching far and wide for a Save the Date that reflects the color red and has beautiful chinese lanterns or chinese double happiness symbols? Did you know that the sign for double happiness celebrates the union of a husband and wife and their two families? I know I’m not an expert on Chinese calligraphy but I’ve always thought that the characters for double happiness actually look like a couple standing together.

I have gotten a number of requests from asian brides or grooms looking for Asian or Chinese Save the Dates. Luckily I have done a lot of the homework for you. Below are what I was able to find from some of the top wedding card designers. Maybe one will be perfect for your Chinese Wedding and Chinese Banquet!

Double Happiness
This Save the Date design by Paper Culture puts the focus on your personalized picture. But at the bottom there is a double happiness symbol and information on your upcoming wedding. Perfect to announce for a Chinese Banquet wedding.

Oriental Elegance
This is a very simple and traditional Chinese Save the Date card. It features a cream colored card with a red double happiness symbol at the top. The information on your wedding date and venue are printed in a matching red cursive font.

Graceful Bamboo
This Save the Date Card from Wedding Paper Divas has a beautiful deep red color. The double happiness symbol is up on the upper left and there is a beautiful bamboo stalk on the side. This is probably my favorite for a Chinese Save the Date card.

Sweet Lanterns
This Chinese Save the Date card from Good on Paper is a more modern take as it does not feature the color red. Instead there is a pretty melon color. I really adore the Chinese lanterns and the little bird cages. And the two little birds over on the bottom right are a wonderful touch.

Two of our Favorite Save the Date Magnets

We don’t always do this but these Save the Date magnets are just so fabulous we had to feature them. They offer a contrast in choices. One magnet is bold and one is more understated.

The Save the Date magnet on the left is called Heartfelt Handbill by Magnolia Press and it comes in a rich red background color with a beautiful cursive “save the date” and a pretty heart below it. It’s a great choice for a Save the Date magnet because it will stand out on the refrigerator or wherever your wedding guests decide to stick it. Remember that for these magnets the corners are rounded which is a nice touch.

The magnet on the right is much more subtle but still on of our favorites. It is designed by Le Papier Boutique.We love the line that says “She said yes and the date is set so we’d love for you to be our guest”. The quote makes Save the Date in this case. We suggest pairing it with a black and white photo for best effect. Notice the small details like the word “love” and the small hear highlighted in pink. It adds a nice understated pop to this design.
