When I uploaded this Save the Date design on my Etsy shop it was clear right away it was going to be a favorite. Handlettering and Calligraphy are very hot right now (which is great!).
Since I can't offer that kind of work as a printable, I looked for a typeface that would re-create the feeling (in this case it's called 'U.S. Declaration') and paired it with a slim, modern typeface (Novecento Wide Book) to create a look that was both traditional and modern at the same time.
This is a simple black and white save the date card, but the stylish typography helps it pack a punch. With a rich, textured eggshell or ivory card stock it will knock your guests socks off when it arrives in the mailbox!
