"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."
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.

Picking the design that expresses your personality as a couple right of the bat will be an important first step.
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:
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 rustic save-the-date cards will get the ball rolling on your wedding theme and all subsequent stationery designs. When you choose your template, be sure to bookmark the wedding invitation style that matches so you will have a head start on the next step.
