Client Customization – Charming Elegant Date

The big date! Every couple falls in love with their wedding date and our Elegant Date design celebrates exactly that. Our exclusive retailer, Kyle Fine Stationery in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, helped their client design a new take on our Elegant Date design. We love seeing couples take advantage of our complimentary custom design process that is built into our Custom Wedding Portfolio program – especially when it results in a gorgeous new design like this one!

This couple chose to keep the format of the original design that allows the wedding date to stretch across the card as the focal point. Changing the font used for the date, to a script with a thinner line, gives the card an overall lighter feel. To add depth, an all-over cross-hatch pattern, originally found on our Cloverdale suite, was layered beneath the copy in a beautiful robin’s egg letterpress ink. The final personal touch is the charming dragonfly motif perfectly placed under the arched copy.

Designer’s Pick – Elegant Date

We are excited to introduce a new series brought to you by our design team. We are very fortunate to have a team that brings creativity and spirit to their work and is invested in providing each client with a truly custom design. Our designers will be choosing their favorite suites to share with you. Kicking things off is Heather with her pick of the week.

As a type enthusiast, one of my favorite Dauphine Press suites is Elegant Date. One of the reasons I like this design is that it uses typography as a motif. The elegant script feels calligraphic and makes a bold statement. The large format is unexpected for a save the date and makes a great impression to those who receive it in the mail. From a design perspective, I love how many variations I’ve seen over the years, not only with font and colors, but with motifs and embellishments (like painted edges or foil). Whether Elegant Date stays true to the original or is customized, the design never goes out of style. The oversized date not only celebrates the couple’s special day, it has been the inspiration for other save the dates. I also love our other typography based suites.

Inspired by vintage typogrpahy, this custom Volusia from Events blends a beautiful script with bold type. 

This fresh take on Elegant Date has flourishes, an all over pattern and painted edges, which makes Calistoga the perfect choice for any extraordinary event.

Pairing bold numerals with delicate patterns, Cloverdale is the perfect way to make a statement.
