"Story time. I've had a shutterfly account for a couple years now. And during those years, I've moved a couple times as well. So I have a few addresses on account. I just recently ordered my most important thing from Shutterfly (so far) - my save the dates for my wedding! Everything seemed great, and I ordered them, excited to recieve them. The day of delivery came so I checked my package tracking info and I made a grim discovery... My Save the Dates got sent to my OLD address! I thought I had sent them to my current address, but no. I totally missed it. So I started freaking out. I called the Shutterfly Customer Service line and talked to the sweetest lady with the thickest southern accent I had ever heard. She was super nice and understanding, seeing to how important these were to me. She offered to send me a new shipment of my order free of charge, AND she even upgraded my shipping to faster shipping, as free of charge, because she understood how important these were to me. I received them a week later. I am SO grateful for her hospitality and willingness to help me. I've used Shutterfly before and never had a problem and everything has always been great but this was the first time I had to call customer service, and I had a great experience. Thank you so much Shutterfly!!"
"My save the dates came out wonderfully and were received so quickly! It was amazing!"
"I obviously used this format for our wedding save the dates. I was concerned the pictures were going to turn out blurry because the preview made it kind of look that but they turned out perfect and we couldn't be happier! We've received many compliments on how they turned out!"
"They look amazing and very neat. I couldn't ask for a better card"
"My save the dates came out absolutely gorgeous and I can't rave more about how amazing they are."

To make sure your loved ones do not make other plans for the big day, make sure you send out flat save the dates so that everyone can plan accordingly.
What to Include on Save the Date Cards
Naturally, these cards require the wedding date, so you and your fiancé will need to determine a hard date before sending them out. However, due to the fact that these cards need to be sent out months in advance, you may not have everything down pact. There is no need to fear because there are only a couple other things you want to include on it, one of which is a loving picture of you and your partner.
Flat save the dates need to have a location. You may still be trying to book a specific venue, but do not wait until you have a specific spot locked down because you need to send these out posthaste. Generally, you just need to include the city. This is especially important if you are planning a destination wedding far away from where you actually live. People need to know where to get plane tickets. Lastly, make it clear on the save the date card whether the person gets a plus one or not. Also, make sure that you know how to address your save the dates cards.
