Summer always brings to mind thoughts of warm weather and bright, bold colors, so hosting a summer wedding celebration nearly requires that your save the date cards conjure images of sunny beaches and palm trees. Even if you aren't hosting a beach wedding, you can easily create chic, customized save the date cards that will epitomize your guests' favorite parts of summer if you follow these easy steps to creating the perfect summer save the date cards for your celebration!
One of the easiest ways to give your save the date cards a little extra burst of fresh, summery style is to incorporate bold colors into your design. Even if you are sending out your save the date cards in the middle of winter (as you should-save the date cards should be sent at least six months in advance of your wedding date), you can incorporate a blend of cool winter tones and hot summer hues to give your save the date cards a timeless aesthetic.
The key to selecting the ideal blend of colors for your save the date cards involves pairing a crisp, cool color with a bold, vibrant one. Select colors that are complimentary, but not too similar-think mellow gray with sunshiny yellow, or deep navy blue with crisp, classic white. These contrasts will give your summer save the date cards an extra sense of depth and charm.
Another way to encourage your summer save the date cards to match the style of the winter months, consider scaling back the summer motifs you use on your design. Instead of covering your save the date cards with palm trees and seashells, simply use a single anchor or the image of a sailboat to indicate to your guests that your sweet summer wedding is looming on the horizon.
Follow these simple guidelines as an easy way to incorporate summer style into your save the date cards, and you and your guests will be enjoying your chic celebration in no time!
