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!
"Our wedding theme is rustic so with this particular save the date it fit perfectly. My fiancé and I have been together for 10 years so it was a great story line for those whom we met in the last few years or so to share pieces of our history. Very fast shipping. I ordered on a Tuesday night and they arrived first thing Saturday morning. The printing was perfect."
"The color and paper are very high-quality. After receiving our proof, we requested an additional change. The designer actually gave us two different options to choose. Very happy with the cards & shipping was faster than expected."
"very good quality! not much customization needed, cards are beautiful as is. Customer service was amazing! I ordered a few too many and realized it right after I placed the order.... But I emailed customer service and they fix it right away and refunded me. Very happy with the product!"
"Such beautiful save the dates!! The paper is much thicker than I thought it would be, and they are really lovely. I can't wait to send them out! They arrived much sooner than expected as well. Thank you so much!"
"We chose the fern color and used the London Book fonts. Turned out lovely. I was impressed by the paper quality, the print quality, and the overall look of the cards. I ordered these without getting paper samples in the mail and was very pleasantly surprised. Worth every penny. Thanks!"
