"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."
The big day is just around the corner. You are going to be marrying the love of your life, and you want all your family and friends the witness the momentous occasion. 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.
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.
All your friends and family who live out of town will truly appreciate the thought you put into your flat save the dates. If you are looking for something with a slightly different aesthetic, then you can also look into quarterfold save the dates. Plenty of cards and accessories are available for you to have a wedding everyone will be talking about for some time to come.
