New! Save the Date Magnets

We’ve been promising their debut for a while, but the day is finally here—Wedding Paper Divas is thrilled to announce the launch of our brand new line of save the date magnets!

By combining style and functionality, these charming magnets are sure to land in the coveted spot on the middle of your friends’ refrigerator doors for months before your wedding (and probably for long after you say, “I do,” too!).

We also offer adorable save the date postcards in addition to our selection of classic save the date cards, so we think all of this variety begs the question—which type of couple are you? Would you opt for save the date cards, postcards or magnets? Why?

Wedding Stationery Wednesday: Borrowed From Nature

As more and more weddings are making the move outdoors, I can’t help but gush over all of the beautiful nature-inspired stationery designs that are sprouting up.

Whether you’re looking for an invite that’s earth-friendly, seasonally themed or simply stunning, there is an abundance of unique and memorable options to fit your style, naturally. And don’t forget about color! Mother Nature provides a pretty amazing palette to pick from.

I am so smitten with the fresh, organic appeal of these designs. Which one is your favorite?

Wedding Stationery Wednesday: Modern Wedding Invitations

At Wedding Paper Divas, we are always asking ourselves what defines something as modern. Sure, unique colors and bold style tend to characterize our modern wedding invitations, but ultimately we think “modern” wedding stationery takes a fresh and exciting twist on something classic.

Whether it’s geometric prints, bright hues, a fresh take on floral designs or even a twist on a timeless monogram, we love the way these modern wedding invitations make a departure from the expected in an elegant new way. What’s your favorite design?
