Save the Date Cards

save the date cardsSave the date to celebrate!  With all of the fall and winter engagements, spring, summer and fall weddings are well underway for planning!  Sending a save the date card to family, friends and relatives will let your guests know of your chosen wedding date and destination to ensure your guests can attend and reserve the date for your special day. 

Save the date cards should be mailed out approximately six months prior to your wedding day.  If you are hosting a destination wedding, save the dates can be sent eight months to a year in advance to allow your guests to financially prepare to attend your big day, as well as to make travel arrangements. 

When choosing your save the date card, it can coincide with your wedding theme, or be completely different!  If you’re having a formal wedding, it’s even acceptable to send a wild and crazy save the date, like this one  here in the top left corner, the Bold and Brilliant Save the Date Magnet.  One of our most popular save the date card styles is our digital photo save the date cards which allows you to send a portrait of the engaged couple along with a few of your wedding details.  If photos aren’t your style, you can also choose from an array of casual save the date cards with outdoor themes or silhouette bride and groom couples or a more formal design with an elegant pattern or motif border. 

Your save the date card should include a few pertinent details about your wedding, however it should not include all details of your wedding, as venues, times or locations may change over the coming months.  Your save the date card should include the names of the couple to be wed, a wedding date, location (city and state is sufficient), as well as a phrase such as, “Invitation to follow”.  You may even want to include a wedding website, especially if you have a lot of information for guests to review.

Below are some of our most popular save the date cards
