Making A Statement with Champagne Save the Dates


It wasn’t that long ago that proud parents sent out formal written engagement announcements. {sigh} Those were the good ‘ole days when people took the time to send letters and mail thank you notes. These days it seems phone calls, emails, texts, and Facebook updates are the favored methods of sharing the happy news. Luckily, the last decade has seen more and more excited couples sending out “Save the Date” cards as a way to bridge the gap between formal engagement announcements and everyday practical planning. Save the dates emerged in the wedding world with the onset of destination weddings as a way to share travel information with their guests. As more wedding magazines featured the stylish cards and packets (and today’s bridal couples got busier), save the dates steadily became standard operating procedure for every kind of wedding. We couldn’t be happier! From what we’re seeing this Spring, save the dates are quickly becoming statement pieces!

For instance, we recently designed a Champagne Save the Date that included a split of Korbel Champagne nestled in a custom-made black box that was mailed around the country. In addition to the champagne bottle, we also placed in the box a matching black save the date card that would POP out immediately once the box lid was removed. This stylish little card provided all the pertinent event information one would expect: the names, date, location, and travel information. We printed the text with metallic gold thermography on heavy black stock and added a small crystal embellishment for a little extra “bling.” But, we didn’t stop there! Luxurious gold satin ribbon was tied on the champagne bottle, the save the date card, and the entire black box for added richness. All 125 boxes were placed in shipping boxes filled with fine wood shred, labeled with matching fonts, and sent out using U.S. Priority mail for speedy delivery! From what we understand from the client, as well as their wedding planner, Melissa Brannon of Uncommon Events, our little bottles of bubbly spread the word just PERFECTLY!
