Make your own save the dates online
Once you’ve found the perfect save the dates, pick between folded and flat format and start personalising your cards. Why not start by adding your favourite portrait as a couple? Place it at the front and centre of the template to create a beautiful memento to share with your favourite people. Play with colours, backgrounds, and illustrations to fully personalise your save the date photo cards and match your wedding theme.
Finally, time to add a caption. If you’re unsure about the wording of your save the date card, just focus on a few key details, and let your pictures do the talking. Make sure to include a statement announcing your wedding, your names, and —of course — the date. If you’ve already thought about where the wedding will take place, add the city as well. And finally, close off by reassuring the future guests that more details will follow.
