Save the Date Cards

Now you have set a date and booked your venue it’s time to send out Save the Date’s.

These are not always necessary but also not a bad idea as they give your guests a friendly head’s up.

For my save the date cards I liked to be a little creative and made my own, I also felt this added a personal touch.  You could turn it into an evening of girly fun like I did, get a few nibbles or a takeaway and some wine in and bounce some ideas around for your big day, your friends who may or not already be married might have some great ideas that you may not have thought about.

For those who have spare time

I took myself to hobby craft and had a good look round at ideas, I will be honest I was like a child in sweet shop.  I chose colour’s that I would be using for the wedding day and I love butterflies too so tried to incorporate these as an idea.

I bought a pack of cream card, some stamps and coloured ink pads and played around with some designs until I was happy. I went with a postcard design, but you could do smaller/larger or an actual card design.

I have listed guide prices below, as I know some brides are on a budget just as I was.

  • Picture and word stamps vary from £3 – £12 depending on individual or pack size.
  • 50 Sheets of card range from £2.50 - £5
  • Ink pads are £1 each and come in a range of colours
  • Standard 50 packs of envelopes are £4
  • Calligraphy pens these can be picked up for just £1

For those on the run

I would recommend sites such as Vista Print, Amazon and notonthehighstreet.com

All budgets can be tailored for.

You can add photos and personalise with the theme of your wedding day.

Using online print services will cost on average £4.99 for a standard card pack of 10, to personalise it can cost up to £18 for a pack of 10 (this does depend on size, thickness and personalisation of card)

I have added some wording ideas below which may be helpful to you when design your cards.

Always remember to add the guest’s names to the card to save confusion later on!
