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!
"We were very pleased with the quality of the card we received. It looks exactly like it does in the digital proof. The colors are brilliant, and the print quality is very crisp. The standard paper is thick enough to stand up to mailing and display without creasing. The envelopes are smooth and creamy, and take the calligraphy ink very nicely. The printing/shipping was much faster than promised. Strongly recommend."
"Added a lot of personalized touches and received excellent customer service. All questions were answered within hours of emailing. I will definitely be using them again!!"
"This sample card came in and I knew this was the one! I love that I can have four decent size photos on the card, along with keeping to our green theme. With the initials in the middle and the blocking of letters and pictures, it makes a clean, crisp beginning to saving our dates. One of two we have to decide on but this is my favorite!"
"We ran into a couple of issues when printing ours. The quality of our pictures wasn't high enough. The design team was very responsive and helpful. My fiancee was very pleased with the look sw well as the service. We are contemplating getting our invitations here now."
"I just received my save the dates and I can't wait to send them out! The paper is fantastic quality and the design is perfect. I changed the font to black and the color of the design to a light green. They look awesome!"
