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.
"We used a colorful print that had grey background hues, which complemented the text box portion of this card well. The designer helped us center our image and optimize it for printing. We are very happy with our purchase and can't wait to send these out! As others have said, keep in mind that these post cards are on the small side, but we knew that going in and thus got what we expected."
"My save the date cards came out perfect! I sent in a special request to have the right side have 2 smaller pics instead of just 1 pic on the ride side and the design team did an awesome job! I was very impressed at the quality. I cannot be more pleased!"
"My fiancée actually picked this design for our save the dates! I wasn't sold on it at first, but it was his favorite, and after we personalized it and made it look exactly how we wanted it to, I started to love it. Once they arrived in the mail, I was so impressed with the quality and how cute they turned out! I'm definitely glad we chose this design, and that we were able to do some things to make it our own. We will absolutely be returning to personalize and purchase formal invitations!"
"My fiancé and I love this product. We had to swap out a photo, and the communication with WPD was easy! There were other places that would print our save-the-date postcards at a lower cost, but we were so pleased with the quality of the cards that it was worth the little bit of extra funding!"
"Everything about ordering was simple and easy. Only thing is I wish the address lines were bigger. Our I just need to write smaller"
