More Stationery Info
Congratulations! They’ve popped the question and you’ve said yes. Amongst the excitement, there will be so many different questions floating around in your head. Where are we going to have it? Who are we going to invite? Where shall we have our honeymoon? All these questions are important and lead to your first step on your wedding stationery journey - The Wedding Save the Date card is the first part of a formal invitation.
Your Printed Save the Date is the first formal announcement of your engagement that is sent out to your provisional guest list with the bare bone details of your big day, the most important being the date. This item essentially is giving your guests notice of when you intend to get married so that they don’t book something less important on the day of your very important day. Save the Date Cards are a crucial part of wedding planning, providing guests with a preview and the date of your big event so they can schedule accordingly.
This then means you’ve got more time to iron out the important details like venue, menu and who is coming for the day and who is coming for a late night boogie. You can do this all without the worry of your guest's double booking and missing out on your wedding day.
So what should your design look like?
Colour is an important aspect of your save the date template as it can make the design really pop and make your own design look great. If you have already decided on a colour scheme you could utilise those to keep the theme running for everything to do with your wedding. Maybe you want to keep it minute and classy with a simple black and white style. As long as the colours compliment each other and get the general vibe of your big day across there are no wrong answers here. If you haven’t decided on a colour scheme yet, maybe now is the time to do some research and get your colours nailed down so you can utilise them across all your wedding stationery.
The Wedding Date
Arguably, the most important part of your personalised save the date other than your name, the date that you are going to be married. If your guests do not know what date they are saving then it is going to be near impossible to do just that. You could make the date a prominent part of your design with a big bold font or maybe you could add a small form calendar design to one side and circle the date they need to be saving. Why not put the date in bold on one side with the other minor details on the other side to make the design really obvious. You could also get creative and mark the date in a fun way. The more memorable you make the save the date, the more likely your guests are to remember the date for your wedding. Couples these days often include a QR code with a link to their wedding website so the invitees can see accommodation options and how to get there well ahead of time.
Your Wedding Stationery Design
It’s important that your save the date stands out. You want your guests to get excited for your big day and remember the date. By making the design stand out it serves as a keepsake to stick on the fridge or on the mantelpiece so that your guests don’t forget when your special day is. It also is great for you to keep and put into a memory box for your wedding day. Why not get creative with the design and make them look like a train or plane ticket with your wedding being the destination. Make sure to experiment with fonts to add a classy touch just make sure that when you are using fancy swirly fonts, to ensure the important text is in a font that is easy for grandma to read. Floral & Botanical Save The Dates are a popular choice for couples who want to incorporate natural elements and botanical designs into their wedding theme
