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 ordered our save the dates and received them in less than a week. Looked great. Everyone loved them. We will definitely order everything else from them."
"The "swirled in style" save the date postcard was a great option for our wedding - simple, clean and direct. The customer service designer was awesome to work with and made the card exactly what I envisioned. I just wish that the card was printed on a thicker card stock, but it doesn't impact the card quality."
"I was really excited to get our save the date cards. They were easy to make. Just upload your images and drop them in. I particularly liked this design because it worked with a number of our engagement photos. It also seemed to have the right picture ratios. Some of the other designs that I looked at had mostly horizontal, or square images. It ended up not being able to use some of our favorite photos. The only thing I wanted to change was the 'save the date' font. It's a bit too, country for our wedding design."
"This design is so cute! I changed the pink pictured to green and it really popped with the background of our photo. The postcard was thick and a nice quality. Great price!"
"I love the quality of the cards and the envelopes. The size of the cards are almost 4 1/2 x 5 1/2. A perfect size to realize that it's something important in your mailbox. It looks great on my refrigerator with a magnet and in my curio on display. I highly recommend the black and gold border."
