Elegant Save the Dates

Congratulations on your engagement! If you’re ready to dip your toe into the waters of wedding planning, one of the first orders of business is to decide on a date for your big day. Then, once you’ve chosen the perfect venue and booked the day, it’s time to let your friends and family know the good news.

If you’re planning to have a sophisticated, refined wedding, elegant save the dates from Shutterfly are a great place to start.

Elegant Save the Date Ideas

We make it easy to find and personalize a save the date card that captures your elegant bridal style and complements your wedding look. Our selection of elegant save the dates includes ornate scrollwork, classic calligraphy and traditional, refined designs that are sure to make an impact on your guests. Here are just a few ideas for how to make your save the dates even more elegant:

  • Use formal wording. Elegance and a formal tone go hand-in-hand. Use formal, traditional wording on your save the date to elevate the cards and set the mood for your wedding. Save the dates aren’t wordy by any means, but the simple addition of “Kindly save the date” and “Formal invitation to follow” can set an elegant tone and give your guests a taste of what to expect on your big day.
  • Use your full names. On that note, opting to write your full names on your save the dates can add an air of elegance as well.
  • Add custom address labels. Make an elegant impact from the moment your guests open their mailboxes by adding personalized, coordinating wedding address labels to your envelopes.

Tips for Sending Your Save the Dates

Send out your personalized save the dates early on so your guests can mark their calendars. About 6-8 months before the wedding is an ideal time to send save the dates—and you should aim for even earlier (closer to a year) if you’re planning a destination wedding.
