Question: Should my save-the-date match my wedding theme?
Answer: That’s totally up to you!
Truly, it is. Since there are so many fantastic save-the-date designs available, you may or may not want to limit yourself to one that coordinates with your wedding theme.
Here are a few things to think about when making your decision.
• The formality of your wedding.
If you are planning a formal or very traditional wedding, you should choose a save-the-date that reflects that style. It doesn’t have to be equally as formal, but keep it classy. The Simply Smooth save-the-date is a great example of an elegant, inexpensive save-the-date. Also check out Ann’s photo save-the-dates. Photo save-the-dates are a trendy choice that will coordinate well with most wedding styles.
• For the destination wedding.
There are some really fun save-the-dates available for destination weddings. You’ll find a variety of tropical designs, Vegas designs and traveling designs with passports and even paper airplanes! Invitations by Dawn is an excellent wedding retailer for themed wedding products, including save-the-dates.
• The season in which you’re sending the save-the-date.
Unlike wedding invitations, save-the-dates are often themed around the season you send them, not when the wedding is taking place. (Money-Saving Tip: Consider combining your save-the-date with your annual holiday card. Photo holiday cards work beautifully as save-the-date cards. Check out www.peartreegreetings.com.)
• Your personality as a couple.
These days, it’s all about your personalities! What’s your style as a couple? With so many designs to choose from, you’re bound to find a save-the-date that reflects who you are.
