"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."
While weddings are often considered elegant affairs, some people prefer a more unique setting and take on the traditional ceremony. If you and your betrothed would rather party all night long than mix and mingle in a black-tie affair, here are four ways to let your friends, family and other guests know that you want your wedding day to be as fun as possible. Start with beautiful whimsical save the dates and matching invitations.
When your guests receive whimsical save the date cards in the mail, they usually get a taste for what your wedding will be like. Take a goofy picture to go with it, and carry the theme on with your actual wedding invitations, RSVP cards, name cards and even thank you cards for your wedding. Be vocal about what you expect from your guests. If you don’t want it to be a formal affair but rather a fun celebration, let everyone know.
Do you want to barbecue at your reception instead of hiring a caterer? That’s all up to you because it’s your special day. You don’t necessarily need to have the ceremony and reception at a church building or fancy event hall. These venues are beautiful, but a simple ceremony and loud party in someone’s backyard is just as effective. Beachside and lakeside locations are also beautiful, popular and somewhat casual options to consider.
No one said you have to wear a white dress or black tuxedo. These days, wedding dresses and tuxedoes come in many different colors. Choose attire that matches your personalities and wedding theme. The way you choose to dress will definitely have an effect on the tone of the ceremony and reception.
Music is an easy way to let your guests know what kind of celebration you’re throwing. There are traditional wedding songs and then there are those choices that might make your parents roll their eyes. Create a playlist that describes you as a couple and that lays a foundation for fun. Then sit back and enjoy your hard work.
