Thoughts from our seasonal save the date couples

It’s always interesting to hear what the inspirations behind our competitions actually pick for their cards. Here are some real-time responses from our Style Me Pretty couples on what save the date cards they’re thinking about using for their upcoming nuptials.

Brittany: “We have loved watching the designs come in, some of them are GORGEOUS and all of them are fun!” My favorite is Green Butterfly by Pretty {much} Art.

I love the font, and the butterfly on the front…and I like that it is all one color. If I had to change one thing about it, I would hope that if it gets picked up to be sold by minted.com , that it could be possible to offer it in a variety of colors. Our wedding colors are in the purple family, and the original green color wouldn’t be my first choice.

(Not to worry, Brittany—all of our cards are always fully customizable and can be made in any color under the sun. All you have to do is get in touch with one of our customer associates by emailing service@minted.com or calling 1-888-828-MINT / 1-415-466-2090 )

Victoria: Our top choices were: Fields by Kerry Doyle. fields Save the Date Cards

Boardwalk Stencil by Alex Elko Design.

Victoria: We agreed on all of these.  The main colors for our wedding are black and white so it is hard to find a save the date in those colors that isn’t too serious/harsh.  We actually like the idea of a total departure from the wedding colors for the save the dates. Seasonality wasn’t super important to us but we liked the subtle play on winter some of the designers came up with like the Penguins and the smitten save the date by sweet street gals.

Nicole: Baroque Save the Dates by Amy Fontes Graphic Design.

We both like the detailed designs and texture that she included. We also really liked Falling Leaves by Pottsdesign. Under a Canopy of Falling Leaves Save the Date Cards

I thought the artistry is excellent. I would actually prefer something a little more light colored. I also like Simply Save the Date by lehan, but haven’t asked Thomas about it yet… But once again the understated detail, artistry and light colors really caught my eye.

Hannah: MY personal favorite pick for our wedding is the Blossom Save the Date by Kerry Doyle.

Our colors are (as of now) black & white with spring green accents, and I absolutely love the contrast of the bright green against the bright white. I also love the fonts she chose, I think they are perfect for our level of formality and our personalities!

My fiance disagrees! He thinks it’s way too floral and feminine for his tastes. :(   Our runner-up (that we can both agree on) is the English Garden by Push Papers.

Although I also love the Flourishing by Susan Schneider. Flourishing Save the Date Cards

(Hannah, you can always pick a super girly invite for  your shower! We can easily make any of these save the dates into bridal shower invitations.)
