Save the Dates

Our first real wedding purchase aside from vendor services was our Save the Dates. There are so many great options available; from themed stationery to custom designs you really can get as creative (and expensive) as you want. To set the tone for our rustic wedding we wanted something with earthy beige tones with a splash of color, simple and practical for our guests and our budget.

Since this was the first piece of stationery our guests will be receiving or seeing I wanted to be sure that whatever style we choose for our Save the Dates that the Invitations, Thank You’s and other important stationery pieces were available and worked with our wedding. Some people may decide differently but I liked the idea of a set design for all our stationery pieces.

After searching many popular sites like Minted.com and WeddingPaperDivas.com I fell in love with a lot of their styles; from mason jars to burlap and lace – they offered great designs for Rustic Weddings. But I wanted something different, not something you see all the time and TheWeddingOutlet.com had just want I was looking for – Plantable Wedding Stationery.

Plantable Wedding Stationery is such a unique, fun idea – don’t you think? What I really love about this stationery besides that is a great way to do something green for our wedding is that guests will enjoy planting these save the dates in August once the receive them. Whether you choose herbs or wildflowers, guests simply insert the seed paper in a pot or outdoors and watch it grow.

Here are some styles I was considering for our summer rustic wedding:

ornate-floral and Ornate Floral Plantable Stationery (coming soon to The Wedding Outlet)
