Save the Date {Custom Wedding Stationery}

The date is set and you’re ready to let friends and family know what date to save. Why not do it with a Save the Date? If you’re having a destination wedding, have a wedding date on a three-day holiday weekend or have a lot of out of town guests you plan on inviting you may want to send out save the dates to your guests.

There are many options on how to send out your save the dates. You can go simple with a post card or an email, or you can go with a more unique way. I sent out save the date stickers and placed them like a business card on my printed save the date card. That way guests could either put the save the date on the fridge or use the sticker on their calendar.

I love the look of this “photo booth” save the date. It seems so personable and memorable. And using your own picture whether its from an engagement photo shoot or taken by a friend (or photo booth) takes a save the date from formal to more casual. And the simplicity of the design is just perfect!

But there’s nothing wrong with formal! Or matching your save the dates with all of the other stationery for your wedding. Why not use a save the date that compliments the invitations you are choosing? And while you’re at it you can design the reception stationery for your special day all at the same time. This can save you time and energy later on in the planning process. One less thing to check off your list.

This feathered card is simple and elegant. It includes all of the important information and clearly highlights what date your event will take place on and the location of the event. 

And since a save the date is getting the word out on what date your wedding will take place, a save the date that highlights that date as part of the design might be a great choice for you.

These next two save the dates feature calendars right on the front of the card. You can get specific and list the day of the week, month, date, year and time or you can just include a picture of a calendar and circle your date.

Tips for Save the Dates: 
  • Include the date of your wedding, your names and the location or city that the wedding will take place  
  • Send out your save the dates 6-12 months in advance
  • You don’t need to send a save the date to every guest. If only a handful of your guests will need to make travel arrangements to make it to your wedding you can just order enough to send to them.
  • And remember the most important thing about a save the date – to only send them to people you know you will be inviting. Do not send a save the date to those who aren’t on your wedding guest list; if you aren’t sure than don’t send it. 
  • And remember to have fun! Save the dates are your chance to get creative and have fun. There’s no proper etiquette on wording, etc.
