If you’re wondering if your save the dates need to match your wedding invitations, the answer is: no, not necessarily!

Since save the dates are usually sent 9-12 months before the wedding date (closer to 12 months for destination weddings), it’s possible you won’t even have your wedding-day theme or style totally nailed down…and that’s okay!

Not Sure About Your Style? Choose Simple.

If you’re not ready to match your save the date to your invitation, choosing a simple style is the best choice. You can also use save the dates as a way to really show off your personalities! Remember, save the dates are typically pretty casual in comparison to the wedding invitation, so have fun with them.

This simple photo save the date style isn’t just super affordable, it’s also beautiful! Add one great photo and update the custom text to create a save the date that matches practically any wedding style.
