What customers have to say about our Save the Date

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 did a " save the date " card using a beach picture of me and my hubby.. I only left the word LOVE and left other blank. It turned out great. The cardstock is a very heavy really good quality that looks great all by itself on a small eisle .. Thanks so much shutterfly!"

LOVE!

"I love this Save the Date card. I like that the writing lays over the picture but you can still see the picture in the background. My favorite part of this design is that your picture is the main focus of the card."

Blue Save the Date Cards Are a Lovely Reminder

Save the date cards are an exciting part of the wedding stationery suite. The couple is happy to share the big news, and guests get a fun celebration to look forward to. At Shutterfly, we share this excitement and want to help you spread the wedding announcement to all your loved ones. We have an extensive line of save the date cards, and each is customizable for your wedding style, color and theme.

One of the most popular colorways among couples is blue in its many shades: cornflower, royal, pastel and periwinkle. Navy, in particular, has enjoyed a resurgence in the past three years or so, but it is just one of the lovely colors of blue save the date cards we offer.

Stately Designs

Many hues in the blue family provide a feeling of calm, such as pastel blue, aqua and cornflower. On the other hand, there are blues that evoke high energy, such as royal blue. Finally, navy feels just a little bit nautical and can be synonymous with traditional luxury. Here are some great ways to use blue to share your personality as a couple.

  • Combine various shades of blue together, such as pastel blue on a navy background.
  • Pair black-and-white photos with a light hue to create a beachy feel.
  • Use a dark shade as a backdrop to vintage-style handwritten fonts.

Save the Dates and Timelines

The whole idea of save the date cards is to announce the engagement and request that recipients mark the wedding date on their calendar. They are not formal invitations but merely a heads-up that guests’ presence will be appreciated at the nuptials. If there will be travel involved for some invitees, the save the date card is their notice that they may need to start shopping for flights and hotel reservations.

That means the cards should be sent out at least nine months before the wedding. For weddings that will be nearby with mostly local attendees, mailing the save the date cards about six months in advance should be sufficient.

Match ‘Em Up

Blue save the date cards are just the first part of all the wedding stationery you will need. Be sure to keep future mailings in mind when choosing the theme for your save the dates. You likely will want to carry the same theme throughout the process for continuity and ease. Once you are ready to order your cards, Shutterfly is here to help. We offer flexible shipping, and our representatives are happy to be part of your big day!
