"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."
"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! :-)"
"Worked great to share a few pictures from our trip on one card for family."
"I love Shutterfly I wasn't sure about the black and white concept mixed with color but it worked out perfect something simple and beautiful. The picture I loaded doesn't do Shutterfly justice I got the matte finish we got many compliments thanks for making our save the dates something to remember. I will be getting more wedding momentos from Shutterfly!!!"
"My save the dates turned out wonderful! I received them very fast and I am pleased with the product. Only thing I wish I was able to do with them is be able to customize them a bit more. I wish I could add text and change color."
Weddings always seem like they are so far away, but the date is rapidly approaching. Let everyone know to clear their calendars by sending out photo collage save the date cards. Not only can you send friends and family wonderful photos of you and your loved ones, but there will be no confusion of when everyone needs to be somewhere. Having the date right on the front of the card in large font is perfect no matter what you need to save the date for.
As a general rule of thumb, it is a good idea to send premium save the date cards to all your guests about six months prior to the wedding. This will give everyone enough time to mark the date so that they do not make any other plans for that date. You may want to send your photo collage save the date cards eight months in advance if you are planning a destination wedding. Some people will need more time to book their flights and get hotel accommodations.
The other item you need to consider is how much information to include. The purpose of these cards is that you just want people to know when the wedding is. You may not have locked down a venue or have a time set. You should give out as much information as you can at this point, and then include more specifics when you send out the actual, more formal wedding invitations.
A photo collage save the date card is a fun, unique way to let everyone in your life know that you are getting married. While you are looking for these cards, you should also browse through wedding invitations to see which designs catch your eye. With customizable wedding announcement cards, you never have to settle for something you are not 100 percent happy with.
