MATCH YOUR WEDDING STYLE
Now that you and your fiance(e) have decided on a wedding theme and style, you will want to find elegant save the dates that reflect the feel and vision of your wedding day. Our “filter by” function is here to help you discover a design that captures your awe.
If simple and minimalist are words that come to mind when describing your wedding style, our simple & minimalist filter was made for you. It will curate elegant designs pure in style, where everything from the hand-drawn artistry to the photo layout perfectly resonates with a minimalist wedding vision.
Planning an urban themed wedding or want to highlight the city where you and your fiance(e) met? Our cities & states filter will display all the designs with skylines and state outlines that will set the tone for your wedding day.
Customize your save the date to look exactly how you wish. Take advantage of this larger format to include all the design elements and features you desire.
Pick a flat card or fold-over card: With a traditional flat card, you can customize both the back and front of your grand save the date. Want even more space to share photos and notes with your guests? Opt for a fold-over card! Additional card space allows you to personalize the front, back, and inside panels of your mailer. You can also opt to leave the inside blank to add a personalized hand-written message for each guest.
Color options: With unique colors like tuxedo, stone, seafoam, and plum to choose from, you can guarantee your save the date will look different than anything else your wedding guests may have recently received. You can even work hand in hand with our Minted design associates to update your design to feature custom colors you may have already picked out for your wedding. Adjust design elements and fonts to play to the colors that inspire you most.
Personalized picture options: Your save the date is a great place to show your engagement photos to your guests. We have design templates that feature imagery in countless ways and locations. Filter out designs that feature one, two, three, or more than four personal images. Make sure to also use our “Find it Fast™” feature, which will automatically load a photo of your choice into all our designs so you can easily visualize the feel and look of your elegant save the date.
Silhouette shape: Most cards and stationery you receive in the mail are probably shaped in a uniform rectangle configuration with straight lines and edges. Add some style to your mailer by reformatting the silhouette to have rounded corners, bubbled edges, scalloped edges, and other classy cut options.
Custom foil text: Add some dimension to your mailer by incorporating metallic foil elements. Whether you have foil text or foil accents, the gold, silver, or bronze shine can really have a dramatic effect on the look of your card. Choose to highlight important information like the wedding date or location in glittery font that draws the eye in.
Envelope options: Add some character to your envelope by electing a colorful option. Color options include spruce, navy, aubergine, and antique rose to name a few. Certain colors may pair perfectly with your wedding color scheme you have selected.
Free recipient addressing: Carry your stationery design theme over onto the envelope and allow us to address your envelopes on your behalf. We will professionally print names and addresses in a font styling of your choice for a complete look. There is no reason your envelope should look sloppy. After all, it is your recipient's first interaction with your mailer.
Custom stamp: Surprise your wedding guests with a stamp that hints at the contents of what is inside the envelope it is attached to. From a monogram of your names to a personal image, your grand save the date can be sent in style! For more details on this original and personalized touch, head to our custom wedding stamps page.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How far in advance do you send out save the dates? We recommend sending six to eight months before the wedding. This will allow your guests to sufficiently block their calendars. If hosting a destination wedding the mailers should be sent out even sooner.
What should I say on my mailer? Most important are the couple’s names and the date of the wedding. Secondary items could include the venue location, a wedding website URL, and a note that a wedding invitation will be sent out in the near future (that has more finite details about the wedding). If you don’t have an exact venue picked out yet, you can simply list the city or state where you are planning to host. This will keep your guests clued in on what kind of travel arrangements they will most likely have to make.
How long do Minted’s designs take to ship? We provide numerous shipping options and rush options, but our standard delivery schedule should take between 6 and 9 business days to arrive.
