Celebrity Save the Date: Kim & Kris

Categories Wedding Stationery

Happy Monday! We’re hearing from our wonderful web & contributing blog writer Rachel…

Love it or hate it, celebrity engagements seem to make the news a lot! And, I have to admit, I enjoy poring over “umpteen” carat rings, designer wedding dresses, extravagant venues and dreamy honeymoon hotspots {sigh}. With big personalities and even bigger budgets, celebrity couple weddings are fun to predict: What will she wear? Who will perform at the reception? Where will they honeymoon?

Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries

Here at MagnetStreet, I like to think of another fun question: What would their Save the Date look like? It’s fun to browse designs and find ones that famous couples might choose to personalize. With the recent (May 2011) — and highly publicized — engagement of reality tv star Kim Kardashian to NBA player Kris Humphries, I decided to shop around and find three Save the Date designs that I believe best reflect their celebrity style.


Lovely Leopard Print - MagnetStreet Save the Date

Lovely Leopard Print

Kim and her sisters love to dress up in bold, exotic animal print outfits. Therefore, this leopard-inspired design seems tailor made for Kris and Kim. It’s daring and exotic, yet the whimsical border  for the wording helps to balance out the bold design. However, knowing how much Kim loves the spotlight, she might prefer a photo Save the Date design…


Flower Flourish - MagnetStreet Save the Date

Flower Flourish

Feminine, flirty and fun, this floral Save the Date design would beautifully complement Kim and Kris. The big, one-photo layout would give the famous duo plenty of space to show off their favorite engagement pic — perfect for Kim (ever the paparazzi princess). The gift tag dangling on the end of the flowers adds a playful touch, too. But, if she craves an ever bigger photo feature…


Romantic Ruche - MagnetStreet Save the Date

Romantic Ruche

This trendy Save the Date design is all about the photo — a feature Kim would undoubtedly love. She and her fiance could plaster one large photo across the entire background! The intricate ruche frame around the seal would match Kim’s extravagant taste, while the modern, minimalistic layout would probably appeal to Kris and his more subtle style.


What do you think: Would Kim and Kris like any of these designs? Do you have a better design choice for the celebrity duo? I’d love to hear your ideas!

Save the Date! Kelly, Janet, and Brandy Engaged

Categories Wedding Stationery

A trio of Tinseltown’s hottest singers ended the year on an especially “high note”: Kelly Clarkson, Janet Jackson, and Brandy Norwood ALL got engaged (or their engagement was announced) in the last month! What an exciting time for these lovely ladies.

To celebrate their upcoming nuptials, we’re doing a special “trio” edition of Celebrity Save the Date! (For those new to our blog, Celebrity Save the Date is a recurring series where we pick which Save the Date designs best fit our favorite {engaged} celebs.

How will Kelly, Janet, and Brandy “save the date”? See our predictions below!


Kelly Clarkson & Brandon Blackstock

The two-time Grammy Award winner couldn’t keep the excitement to herself: a day after Blackstock proposed, Clarkson posted a Tweet about her engagement on Twitter, adding a link to see her ring–a dazzling, GIANT canary yellow diamond that Blackstock helped design with Johnathon Arndt. Although no major details have been dished about a wedding date or location, we think Kelly might splash a little yellow into her wedding color palette, to match the sunny hue of her gorgeous canary ring. We think she might soften the punchy yellow with a mellow gray tone, to keep it airy and romantic. After all, Kelly loves to her mix punk-pop style with girly accessories!

Our pick for Kelly and Brandon? Watercolor Poppies Save the Date Magnet, in a cheerful yellow and gray palette:

Janet Jackson & Wissam Al Mana

Miss Jackson has reportedly been engaged to Al Mana (Qatar-based billionaire/luxury brand mogul) since sometime last year, although it’s rumored that her ring is too big (aka expensive!) to be safely worn in public (what’s the fun in that, though?). The wealthy duo, who met in 2009, are rumored to be planning a a big spring wedding in Doha, the capital city of Qatar, Al Mana’s home base.

If they do fly guests in for their Qatari wedding, we think our Vintage Tag Save the Date Magnet would be “just the ticket” for the two lovebirds. We could see them drawing inspiration from the area, using a vibrant palette of jewel tones like turquoise, gold, and indigo blue. Stunning, no?

Brandy Norwood & Ryan Press

Whether it’s from the new sparkle on her finger or from the Hawaiian sun, the successful actress/R&B singer seemed to be *glowing* in her snapshot she shared via Instagram.

Now that Brandy is engaged to Ryan Press, a music executive, we wonder how the beautiful couple will “save the date” for their wedding. They seem to be loving their time in Hawaii, so I wouldn’t be surprised if they escape somewhere tropical for their upcoming nuptials. We could see them pairing an elegant design like Platinum Brocade Save the Date Magnet with an earthy palette of amber, rust, and brown. A calming (and winning) combo!

How Will Two Canadian Rockers Save the Date?

Categories Wedding Stationery

A match made in pop-rock heaven: Avril Lavigne is engaged to Nickelback’s Chad Kroeger!

The famous rock band frontman proposed to Avril on August 8th, presenting her with her very own “rock” band— a stunning 14-carat diamond ring (yowzers!).

The announcement of Chavril’s (the latest celebrity name mashup) engagement comes after just six months of dating. Their relationship began back in February after the two teamed up to co-write a song on Avril’s next studio album.

Although there’s no date set yet, we can’t help but think ahead and wonder: What will Avril and Chad’s Save the Date look like? Yes, it’s time for another Celebrity Save the Date!

After browsing our collection, I drummed up a few Save the Date designs that I think would suit these two Canadian rockers.


Photos and Rings - Save the Date by MagnetStreet

Photo and Rings

Avril’s favorite fashion palette is anything black, white, and/or pink. That’s why I think the singer would swoon over this bold Save the Date design. The black background provides a dramatic backdrop for the pops of pink in front. Elegance with an edge…perfect for the romantic rock duo!


Hearts and Skulls - Save the Date by MagnetStreet

Hearts and Skulls

Known for her funky fashions, Avril launched her own clothing line a few years back–dubbed Abbey Dawn (her childhood nickname). Skulls appear on garments throughout her collection, from zip-up hoodies to tank tops and pajamas. With its repeating pattern of skulls, this Save the Date would fit right in with her fashion line. And, in typical Avril style, the skulls are softened with “heart-shaped” eyes and bones.


Garden with a Twist

Both feminine and funky, this Save the Date design would definitely fit Avril’s style. The punk-pop princess loves to add girly touches (like pink hair streaks) to her grungy, “skater” styles. This design echoes her eclectic fashion, pairing floral flourishes with gritty, rough textures.


So there they are — our top three Save the Date picks for Avril and Chad. Which design do you think fits them best? Do you have another design in mind for the pair? I’d love to hear your thoughts!


Happy Friday!

How Would Two Twilight Stars “Save the Date”?

Categories Inspiration + Wedding Stationery

Do teen gothic fairytales really come true?  That’s what many “Twihards” are wondering as rumors escalate that Twilight co-stars Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson are engaged (gasp!).  Although they haven’t gone public about the engagement yet,  the duo has been spotted ring-shopping at the famed Neil Lane jeweler in West Hollywood (according to several gossip sources).

Stewart and Pattinson–who play lovebirds Bella Swan and Edward Cullen in the vampire romance franchise–have remained fairly hush-hush about their four-year relationship, despite the very public and popular success of the Twilight series.

As life begins to imitate art, the time seemed ripe for another Celebrity Save the Date post! To celebrate the “real life” Bella and Edward, I decided to pick three Save the Date designs that echo the magic and mood of the Twilight series that brought these two stars together. These Save the Dates would be fitting for the young Hollywood couple–or for any couple having a Twilight wedding theme!


Classic Allure

This Victorian-inspired Save the Date oozes drama, darkness, and romance — all the classic elements of the Twilight series. The red and black echoes the color scheme present on all the book covers, and the lack of photo on this design would work well for the camera-shy couple.


Deep Rose

Featuring a dramatic red rose, this gothic-inspired Save the Date reminds me of the cover for New Moon. The second novel in the Twilight saga features a wilting red flower amid a dramatic black background. Unlike the book cover, however, this flower is not wilting–it’s in full bloom, which hints that Kristen and Robert’s relationship has blossomed into marriage.


Garden with a Twist

The lush, green meadow amid the forest plays a pivotal role in the relationship between Bella and Edward in the Twilight series. Since Robert and Kristen like to keep their relationship private, I could see them exchanging vows in a quiet, outdoor ceremony amid a grassy field of flowers. This Save the Date design is edgy, yet romantic–which seems to fit the pair pretty well.


So there are my three Save the Date picks for Twilight stars Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson. Which design do you think fits them best? Do you have another design in mind for them? I’d love to hear your thoughts!



Happy Friday,

Rachel for MagnetStreet Weddings
