Despite pervasive digital communication, bride-to-be Whitney Port still believes in paper stationery. At least when it comes to weddings, she wouldn't be caught dead sending a Save the Date via email. "E-vites are not for weddings," she told us at the launch of her stationery collection, exclusively designed for Wedding Paper Divas. "When you get something in the mail, it makes you feel so special and personal, and it tells a story of the whole event." Today, Port's passion for print manifests—her collection is available to shop now.

The stationery reflects the designer's own personal style aesthetic: feminine, bohemian and California-inspired. It comes in six designs: Aztec Allure, Lavish Laurel, Enchanting Affair, Diamond Heights, Golden Garland and Botanical Bliss. There is something to suit every taste, whether you favor graphic, abstract styles or classic romantic florals.

Each set offers save the dates, invitations, response cards and more with a matching motif. They are highly customizable so you can personalize them with color schemes, trims and paper type. Prices start around $1 to $2 per card and full packages vary depending on your design combos, how many cards you order and whether or not you add on extras such as enclosure cards (ie for "Directions").
Whatever you pick for your big day, the designer insists on not forgetting one last thing after the affair: "Thank you notes are a huge part of what people should be doing," she says. "I think it's good manners and it's a good way to show your creativity." Good thing she made so many to choose from!
