Simple Yet Beautiful Save the Dates

Congratulations on your upcoming wedding! Once you’ve chosen the date of the big day, you’ll want to think about sending save the dates to your potential guests. While save the dates are an optional part of your wedding stationery, they can be a helpful reminder for your guests. Save the dates are also essential if you’re planning a destination wedding, as your invitees will need time to make travel arrangements before the big day.

Ready to choose your save the date cards? A simple save the date design is the perfect choice if you like a minimalist style or if you haven’t decided on a theme or style for your wedding day just yet.

With these simple save the date cards, you can let your favorite photo do all the talking. Upload your best engagement photo and show it off front-and-center, then personalize the template with different fonts, colors, trim options and more.

Tips for Sending Your Save the Dates

Ready to send out your save the dates? Keep these save the date etiquette tips in mind:

  • When to send your save the dates: If you’re having a local wedding, you should send your save the dates about 6-8 months before the big day. If you’re planning a destination wedding that will require your guests to make travel arrangements, you’ll want to send them earlier—aim for 10-12 months.
  • What to include on your save the dates: Keep it simple. You just need to let your guests know the date (obviously) and the location of your big day. You can also include your wedding website link (if applicable) which will help guests get further details along the way. There’s no need to mention a wedding venue, ceremony time, registry information or other details on your save the dates, even if those have already been organized.
  • When to send your wedding invitations: Follow up your save the dates with formal wedding invitations about 6-8 weeks before the big day.
