Elegant Save the Dates

Sometimes, the most beautiful option is the simplest. If your refined taste is both sophisticated and straightforward, then an elegant wedding invitation will perfectly set the mood for your celebration.

With dozens of luxurious and tasteful card designs, Zola can help you find your perfect shade of elegance. Enjoy beautiful save the dates without all the extra fuss.

When planning a wedding, there’s always a period of design indecision. Between luxe glamor, rustic bohemian barn, fairytale romance, and everything in between, the options can be overwhelming. Choosing traditional elegance can be a wonderful way to cut through the noise and make your celebration shine:

  • Season – Naturally, there’s elegance in every season. However, winter weddings more easily embody the minimalist, breathtaking feel of true refinement. If planning your wedding during late fall or winter, elegant wedding save the dates will fit the season.
  • Location Wedding venues often set the tone. While breweries and beaches are relaxed and joyous locales, true elegance shines through in formal venues. Ballrooms, museums, historic estates, and religious halls best fit this graceful aesthetic.
  • Style & Theme - Does your dream wedding resemble Cinderella’s ball more than Snow White’s cottage? If your wedding style is streamlined and polished, Zola can help you create formal, elegant wedding invitations to match.

Elegant isn’t one-size-fits-all. But with Zola’s custom filters, you can add elegant luxury to your personal style. Mix and match these flourishes to create the perfect card:

  • Color – Elegance shines in sophisticated or muted tones—think deep greens, romantic blushes, and sleek neutral tones. You can start by browsing all of Zola’s classic and elegant styles, or search for specific color palettes.
  • Foil – There’s a way to encapsulate both refined simplicity and modern sparkle. Touches of gold, silver, or rose gold foil can elevate invitations from plain to polished.
  • Custom Photo – Feel free to show off your real-life elegance with a sophisticated couple’s photo to match. To stay in line with your desired aesthetic, you’ll want to use a simple and romantic picture, surrounded by sparse text in a monochromatic palette. A center alignment helps maintain a clean look.
