Save the Date Cards Set Your Wedding in Motion

The most amazing day of your lives has happened and you have gotten engaged. Congratulations! Now the fun of planning the wedding begins, and the first decision you are likely to make is the celebration date. At Shutterfly, we can help you spread the word to your friends and family so they block out time for your big shindig. Because the save-the-date cards are one of the first steps in your wedding-related mailings, they set the tone for the rest of your celebration. Because of this factor, you’ll need to think carefully about which template you choose. Picking the design that expresses your personality as a couple right of the bat will be an important first step.

Rustic Save-the-Date Cards

Nearly every couple today chooses a foil save-the-date card that includes pertinent information along with a photo of the pair. When it comes to choosing a design, therefore, it really comes down to what background image you’d like to feature. A popular approach is a rustic design, one that features wood grain or wooden planks, chalkboards, lace or a burlap/linen look. However, there are other features you can choose that kick up the rustic factor on our save the date card designs, including:

  • Scalloped edges: There is something about scallops that seems to lend them a rustic air. Could it be their lace-like vibe? Whatever the reason, scalloped edges are a cool design feature.
  • Bracket edges: Whether they are reminiscent of embroidery samplers or Wild West store signs, bracket edges add a distinctly old-fashioned feel to your magnet save the date cards.
  • “Handwritten” fonts: These include things like chalkboard writing or flowery typefaces, and they make your save-the-date cards seem as though each one was written by you personally. The beauty is in the imperfections.

What to Include

Of course, the date you would like your guests to mark on their calendar should be the most prominent feature on the save-the-date cards. But there are some other details you could include, such as:

  • Your name and that of your partner
  • Your parents’ names, if desired
  • The location of the wedding so people can book travel if necessary
  • Additional info, such as a wedding website URL or hashtag
