#TheCraftedWife: Choosing a Save The Date

Save The Date Cards

Well friends, WE HAVE A WEDDING DATE AND VENUE! May 2020 here we come! The next step in our process is letting all of our friends and families know more details, which is where the save the date card comes in.

I’ve been reading up on wedding etiquette and while you don’t have to necessarily send one, they help guests plan ahead to make sure they can arrive (especially if they’re coming from out of town). Traveling in general is expensive so this gives them enough time to save some money and request off of work if needed. Plus let’s be honest, they’re just so damn pretty.

I’ve had a lifelong obsession with stationery so I’m having a hard time narrowing down a favorite. With so many options out there, I need your opinion! Which is your favorite?! Which one would you love to get in the mail? I left notes under each one so you can get an idea of what we’re thinking too!

Save The Date Cards

1. Our Script I love the mix of classic and script font PLUS theres glitter foil! The backdrop may be a little dark, but it really depends on the photo we get with the engagement shoot.

2. Whimsical Script The yellow script font is so playful! Yellow is going to be one of our wedding colors so this would fit in with the design. Ryan thinks it’s a bit too casual which I can see.

3. Soft & Sweet Just like the name, soft and sweet. A safe option and pretty option. It could be a little too plain, but I think it would pair with any other stationery we choose for the main invites.

4. Save Our Date I can’t tell you how much I love the lettering on this one! And again, there’s that glitter foil!

5. Pink Letterpress I mean, pink AND letterpress?! This one is a front runner for sure.

6. Love & Laughter I love the blue and the letterpress on the card, but I’m nervous the script is a little too loose. But the layout is also perfect, so I’m conflicted!

7. Romance in the Air A sweet and romantic option. This also seems like a traditional wedding save the date.

8. Scrawled I’m not a huge fan of the grey background but I seriously love the typeface and design.

9. Retro Script Again, I’ll never get over the glitter foil option. The thick and retro font is so fun.

    hmmm my top 3 are 5/2/3. The fun part about save the dates is that they do not have to represent your exact wedding suite of stationery! So you can have some fun, or do something more casual just for this piece of mail! Stationery was my favorite part of our wedding planning process :)

    • It’s seriously SO FUN! I feel like I’ve been dreaming about the wedding stationery more than the dress and the fact that there’s glitter foil makes me so happy! #5 though…
