You want your wedding to be everything you dreamed it would be: classic and traditional. That starts with your choice of classic save the date cards to set the mood. This card represents your first communication with your guests after setting the date and confirming the location, so it should be simple, beautiful, and most importantly, timely.
Save the dates are simple, and they do not need to have as much information on them as you would expect on an invitation. Since they serve to give your guests the chance to make travel arrangements, ensuring that they are prepared to respond promptly when your full invitation goes out. Typically, listing the venue for the ceremony is enough. Often, even the exact venue is left off in favour of the date and city.
The best time to get your cards in the mail is early. Realistically, six to eight months is a great window to hit. If you notify people further out than that, there is a chance that the date will slip through the cracks in their planning, just because of the long lead time. Less than six months of lead time makes travel planning difficult, though.
As you finish out your theme, keeping to a selection of traditional designs and layouts for everything from programs to thank-you cards will help to reinforce classic elegance. That means simple but stunning designs that take advantage of shape and balance, while also bringing in familiar ornamentation and calligraphy to remind everyone of your big day’s place in a larger tradition.
Following through with classic theme choices means more than just fonts and designs, though. It also means looking for the symbolism and images that speak to classic wedding themes, such as places of worship, doves, flowers, and more. Make classic an original experience for your guests, and let the festivities begin.
"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)."
"We love our save-the-dates! The quality is really good with shinier printing on the front and regular printing on the back to account for the photo versus text. The picture does print a little more "faded" than I thought it would, but for the picture we chose this worked well but keep it in mind for choosing what colors to use. Friends who received this commented on how cute and elegant it was!"
"I love that I was able to put on my engagement photos and arrange them how I wanted. It added a personal touch to the card, along with going with the nautical theme of our wedding. I think the card being a postcard is super cute! Saves me some money instead of buying envelopes! Overall, I enjoyed the whole card and I am so incredibly happy with the product!"
"These Save The Dates are absolutely gorgeous. We ordered them in blaze, and the colors are just lovely. My fiance and I couldn't be happier with the design and the quality of the paper. Special shout-out to the Design Team for taking the time to proof my prints, and to Heldana at Customer Service for changing the quantity to my order. WPD is wonderful!"
"I used my own design for save the date magnets and was so happy with the outcome through Wedding Paper Divas. I had to call customer service a few times to speak with a customer service rep since everything wasn't fitting in the designated design area. They were more than accommodating and set me up with a designer in order to see a proof before ordering. Loved the outcome!!"
