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 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."

Coordinating Your Theme

To achieve a contemporary feel for your wedding, you need simple, yet consistent décor to tie the theme together. From the napkin bands to the wedding favors, make sure you maintain a clean, sophisticated look throughout the event. Other ways to modernize the look of your wedding include:

• Incorporating minimalist, geometric shapes in the décor
