Save-the-dates and invitations are the first glimpse that guests have into your special day, setting the scene for the memorable day to come (no pressure, right?). But the wonderful world of pretty paperie can be overwhelming for couples trying to wind their way through flat vs. letterpress, rustic vs. vintage styles, matte vs. shimmer paper …

Which is why we love seeing stationery boutiques, like The Memory Trunk, going back to the basics and holding brides’ hands through the heavy decision-making process.

Not only does the owner, Tricia, have a slew of styles to choose from in her Etsy shop with the latest trends like laser cut, pocket folds, and bold fonts, but she can turn your vision (no matter how detailed it may be) into a stunning custom job without the hefty price tag. And for all of those crafty DIY brides out there, she even has the option of sending a PDF of your design so you can print in the comfort of your own home.

Want to have your invites signed, sealed, and delivered in style? All Intimate Wedding brides can enter code “INTIMATE2013” to get 10 percent off their stationery suite order from The Memory Trunk.
