Save the Date cards
"This card is simple and to the point, just the way we want it. Although the corner of the save the date column looks a bit funny, we still like the simplistic style to this card.
The only complaint we have is actually how the save the date portion is positioned on the left on almost all the save the date cards' design, except for this "Label of Love" one!!!. We originally were going with "Best Date Ever Save The Date", because the save the date portion looks simpler and the fonts for the date are much bigger and eye catching. But the problem with most of the one-photo save the date cards on this website is that the "save the date" portion is almost always on the left. It is already hard to decide on what's our favorite photo to put on a save the date card, having to pick a photo that fit the design just adds another layer of complication."

A Lot of Bang For Your Buck!
"I was really nervous about using Shutterfly for the save-the-dates for mine and Darik's October wedding, until my friend sent me a save-the-date for her wedding also made by Shutterfly. I spent some time playing around with the layouts of several "favorited" templates, which I highly recommend especially if you're planning to have photos on your cards. I was worried that the pictures might be too small as many of our engagement photos were not close up shots. So I took a shot and was blown away when my little orange box arrived. The pictures were perfectly clear and it looks absolutely gorgeous! I simply love it! Also, I might add, the delivery time was pretty spectacular too. I ordered mine exactly a week ago on Memorial Day weekend and althouh they weren't originally supposed to arrive until next week, I still got them last night, Friday, despite the Federal holiday. Shutterfly is awesome! :-)"

I love my cards!
"I used the Dave the date cards for invitations for my 4 yr olds Disney princess party. I love the great quality the cards are, and the different shapes I can make the invitation. Overall I'm satisfied with the cards, and glad they included envelopes"

Big Bold Initials Save The Date
"Beautifully printed on both sides (flat matte card, no fold). Color matching is very true and fine detail is reproduced faithfully. This square card shape stands out and the matching envelopes are lovely...it was fun trying to decide options for corners, images (front and back, paper, fonts, background colors etc.)....some text areas I chose not to use and that flexibility is a great feature if you want your image to be the total focus. I would definitely buy again and recommend this product to others."

Photo Save The Date Cards
Decisions, decisions, decisions…Who knew planning for a big event in your life could be so hard? From figurig out how to address and send save the date cards, choosing a dress, venue, and more. Ultimately, your greatest care should be getting to your big day and enjoying the wedding of your dreams. Yet in order for that to happen, all of the preliminary steps that you’re preoccupied with right now are a necessity. And they all start with your save the date cards.
Your save the date simply serve as a placeholder for your event invitations. Sent out well in advance, their purpose is to make sure that the important people in your life mark you big day on their calendars. While not a formal invitation, they should still convey how important this event is to you, as well as how much you hope that they’ll be there. Including a photo with your save the date helps send this message.
Working with What You’ve Got
So which picture should you choose? That will depend entirely on where you are in the planning process. Here are just a few suggestions depending on what you have available to you:
• If you’ve already taken engagement photos… The answer here is simple: include your favorite shot from this photo set. • If you don’t have engagement photos… Here it gets a little more tricky. You can choose to include an impromptu picture of the two of you, or just ask a friend or family member to snap a quick formal shot in your living room or backyard. • If you don’t have any photos together… If one of you just happens to be really camera shy, don’t worry; you still have options. Consider including a picture of chapel, or a graphic depicting a wedding cake. Or, if you want to get really creative, use baby pictures of both you and your fiancé(e).
Don’t forget that save the dates are just the first step in guaranteeing your guests’ attendance. The important details of the day will be included in your weding invitations. If your event has a particular theme, keep it in mind when crafting both your flat save the date cards and your invitations, and try to ensure that both the photos, fonts, and messages sent match it. If, on the other hand, it doesn’t, feel free to be as free and crazy with them as you want.
