Planning a wedding is a lot of hard work, but the couple getting married aren’t the only ones who need to prepare. Guests must arrange travel and hotel accommodations, so it is important to send a save the date card for their planning needs. Following proper etiquette is important to ensure enough time and prevent hurt feelings.
Ideally, you will send a save the date card regardless of the type of wedding you are having, but some people choose to skip them as a way to save money. However, there are some cases in which you cannot skip sending a save the date. If you are having a destination wedding, one that will be during a three-day weekend or one that will take place on or close to major holidays, save the dates are necessary for your guests to make the proper arrangements. For traditional weddings, send your cards at least six months in advance. If your wedding falls into one of the aforementioned categories, send the cards at least eight months in advance.
Sometimes the excitement of planning your wedding day makes you get ahead of yourself. If you don’t plan carefully, you may send out too many save the date cards, only to find you cannot afford to invite as many people as you had planned to. To avoid hurting feelings by opting not to send official invitations to people who received save the dates, ensure your guest list is complete and finalized before telling anyone they are invited.
Traditionally, wedding invitations are formal and somehow tie into the theme of your wedding day, but save the date cards are much less formal. Feel free to play around with the colors, fonts and wording of your cards to show a fun and creative side. You can do this even if your wedding will be formal. Wedding Paper Divas offers dozens of cheap save the date cards in a wide range of styles. Don’t forget to order custom envelopes.
"I loved having the ability to choose up to 4 photos since we took so many for our engagement shoot, yet they were organized in a way they still made it look simple and tasteful! Being able to choose colors that matched was great, as well as writing a detailed message on the back! Also, saving on postcard postage was definitely a huge plus!!!"
"These are perfect, our photo was perfect on the cards! Great quality. Would be nice for the cards to be a little thicker, but I would buy them again if I needed to! Don't forget, using postcards means postcard stamps,which will also save you money since they are only 35 cents each vs the 49 cents for traditional letter stamps!"
"Our Save the Date turned out better than I imagined! Our Designer did a fantastic job on them and they responded to all my requests!"
"I changed a little bit of the wording on the front of the card to make it fit better with the length of our names. Loved that I was able to customize it down to every detail. I also requested to see two different color schemes - this was so helpful in making the decision on exactly how I wanted it to look. They got to me in good shape and very quickly after placing the order. High quality look & feel of the product!"
"I used WPD to make a Save the Date card for my upcoming wedding and it was such a seamless process! I had a few changes to the design which they more than happily fixed, and their customer service was fantastic. Literally in 3-4 days I had designed the card, approved a proof, and received my shipment (with express delivery)."
