So the question’s been popped and your big day is officially on the schedule. Now what? One of the first steps to take after choosing a date and settling on a theme is to pick out your save the date cards from the variety of flat save the date options available. To get the most out of your choice, it’s best to go in with your theme already chosen and your ideal photographs for the card already taken. That way, it’s easy to get a real preview of your cards.
Save the dates are not a replacement for wedding invitations, they’re an early advisory for your guests to keep the date clear. That means they need to be sent out early, around six to eight months before the wedding, to ensure that people have adequate planning time for their travel arrangements, child care, or other needs. That way, by the time they get your invitation, they will be prepared to respond promptly.
When picking out your invites and response cards, keep in mind how your invitation works as a second stage in your wedding theme. You will want to find invites that complement your choice of flat save the date cards without repeating too much. It’s best, too, if they help elaborate on your theme more, to build up the guests’ expectations for the event and let them know what your colors and general tone will be.
As you plan through the rest of your theme, keep in mind how each choice, from your programs to your decorations and centerpieces, contributes to the mood of the day. Wedding themes are meant to help you set a tone, so follow-through is important. Last but not least, remember that you still need to plan for gifts for your bridesmaids and groomsmen!
"These cards are absolutely gorgeous. The print is just delicate enough and the card stock was sturdy. I have gotten tons of compliments on them and am seriously considering purchasing the matching suite."
"I love this design it is perfect for a destination wedding which we are doing and it matches my photos perfectly. They make it so easy to put your photos in and change the color of the cards! All in all amazing I just wish the delivery would have been a little faster."
"I paid extra to have them shipped within 7-10 business days- and received them in two business days! I sent my original draft on a Saturday- finalized their draft (as they completed all my special instructions) on a SUNDAY- (yes- they actually worked on it on Sunday!) And they were on my doorstep by Tuesday! Not even technically due for another 6-8 days! Next time I may not have to rush order as they clearly don't sit on work- but instead get it done! Super Accommodating! Super Quick! Super Satisfied! Will use them again! Shopping now for my invites! - TaraMichelle"
"My fiance and I picked this style for our save the dates and we absolutely loved how they came out. Even family and friends said they loved them. Great price, and great quality. I am also very happy with how quickly we got them. I got an email to review our order, one change needed to be made. I was notified that we'd receive them a week later which I was fine with but I ended up getting them two days after I had finalized everything. I give an A++"
"We got these in Cabernet for our save the dates because the invitations we picked out (from this site) didn't have them. We are very happy with the quality of the paper and the clarity of the printing. We are considering getting the Thank-Yous also."
