What customers have to say about our Save the Date

December 3, 2012

Save the Date cards

"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."

A Lot of Bang For Your Buck!

"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! :-)"

Save the Dates

"We just ordered this design for our Save the Dates. They were a little bit larger than expected; however they are absolutely beautiful!We have received many compliments on them. I searched many websites but ultimately decided to go with Shutterfly and this design because it was great quality good price and could be customized to what we needed."

"I loved the simplicity, and not only were the pictures printed on fairly good quality cardstock, but the envelopes are all of good quality as well, I was afraid they would be those flimsy things that you can see the picture through, but they have definitely exceeded my expectations!"

DIY Save the Date

When you and your partner have always taken matters into your hands, you’re not going to pass on the opportunity to curate your wedding yourself. Cookie-cutter stationery and generic themes likely don’t fit the image you’ve envisioned for your special day. For the DIY-inclined, here are few ideas to make your wedding day unique, from DIY save the date cards to homemade wedding favors.

Making a Lot Out of Little

The key to a successful DIY wedding is to make the most out of your available resources. For example, simple table decorations are a clever way to integrate crafty, inexpensive objects into your décor theme. From small floral arrangements to decorative napkin bands, there are endless ways to accentuate creativity throughout your design.

Customized Save the Date Cards

DIY save the date cards are an easy way to express your individuality among friends and family. Customizable stationery allows you to create an entirely unique design from scratch, incorporating elements of your personality that only you could capture. Upload and arrange your own photos, text and borders for a truly unique card.

Homemade Gift Bags

You don’t want to leave your guests empty handed when they leave. Assemble personalized, homemade parting gifts for your friends and family and show how much you truly appreciate their company. For instance, design customizable tote bags with your guests’ names on them and fill each one with a personalized picture frame to commemorate the day. Some other DIY wedding favors ideas include:

• Homemade treats
• Small potted plants or succulents
Personalized candles
Custom coasters and other small home goods

When you have creativity on your side, there is no limit to what you can do yourself in preparation for your wedding. Remember, be realistic about your DIY goals. After all, your wedding is supposed to be a celebration of the love between you and your partner, not an excuse for undue stress in your life.
