You’ve set the date but don’t yet have venue details? Worried family and friends may book holidays and not be available for your wedding? Then Save the Dates are the perfect way to ensure those important guests reserve the date for your special day. This first piece of wedding stationery is also a great way to try out a design and colour scheme. You can then continue with matching invitations or go for a completely different design later on.
Our layered Vellum Save the Dates are fully customised and finished off with a gold or silver grommet to keep them neatly together.
Vintage, modern, floral, delicate, bold, plain — we've got a wide range of wedding stationery to suit everyone's style. Our Save the Dates are perfect no matter what time of year you are getting married.
We can create the rest of your stationery to match your chosen design too. To order an invitation in this style, please use an Invitation listing or get in touch. This listing is for simple Save the Dates only! Remember, we can always change an invitation design to match this one!
Printed onto your choice of cardstock and onto a thick layer of 140gsm vellum. We punch a hole in the tops and join the two layers together using 2-piece grommet (often mistakenly referred to as rivets or eyelets). This leaves a neat hole for you to thread through your choice of twine or ribbon. Or leave it as is and let the colour of the grommet shine.
Flat magnets are available to fix to the back to ensure your Save the Date can have a place on a fridge where it can’t be forgotten. Or you may wish to continue the design across the back. Optional envelope liners & matching stickers even give the envelopes a personal touch.
CAN I MAKE CHANGES?
YES! The one question everybody asks us is “Can we change x, y or z?”. The answer is always YES! We fully customise everything so if you’d prefer to word your Save the Dates differently from those pictured then just tell us when placing your order. Perhaps you’d prefer to have less print on the vellum and more on the backing card? No problem, they are fully customisable. Need the colour or design tweaking? Just let us know when ordering. If it’s Mini Invitations you are looking for, please use an invitation listing. We can still match this design, layout, and size! We can even print a design of your own!
BACKING CARD COLOUR: The backing card refers to the main card that the vellum cover is attached to. We have tried and tested many card types and those we currently have available are the best. Our smooth white and ivory card is 330gsm. The lightly textured, Premium cream card is 350gsm and noticeably thicker. Its pale, creamy colour gives a softer look than white, and it adds a real touch of luxury to any design. Finally, we have a wonderful selection of gorgeous Colorplan card. One of the best card types available it comes in a range of colours and has a soft feel to it with a hint of texture.
GROMMET COLOUR: We have 2 main colours available: Gold or Silver. If you require another colour, please just email us and tell us how many you’d like, and we’ll see what we can find from our suppliers.

ENVELOPE LINER: We can create matching envelopes liners to fit into your Save the Date envelopes. We will create them to match the listing design, but you can of course choose any other design to compliment your cards. Just let us know when ordering.

We will require a spreadsheet with all the details. Please read the instructions pdf here for further information or ask us for a template to complete when placing your order.
