Wedding save the dates and / or invitations are a guest’s first impression of what your wedding day will be like - they’ll immediately start imaging the setting, colors, and overall vibe of your day. They can be beautifully ornate or sleek and modern, just like they can be extravagantly expensive or creatively cost-effective.

Here are a few I’ve found on Etsy that are stunning and would for sure photograph well. Pro tip : whatever invitation you end up choosing, always keep an extra pulled-aside for your photographer to shoot on your big day! You can mail one to me ahead of time or bring it the day-of!



This shop has a great variety of looks, and sells invitations as digitally downloaded PDFs to customize and print to fit your needs. I love this idea because it let’s you scale-up or scale-down the type of paper you’re using to fit your budget, AND you can customize envelopes to match your color palette! There are tons of styles, all of which are clean and elegant, and she does menus as well, if you’re looking to tie the same look into your reception! Each invitation is priced at $25 to download.
