Fabulous Save The Date Card Ideas For Your Wedding!

Hey All!

When I got married last May Shutterfly was my savior for all my wedding thank you cards and save the date cards. They have the most amazing selection of chic yet affordable designs for all your wedding stationary needs. With the costs of weddings being super high (Ours cost upwards of $50,000) it’s great to get high quality customizable cards that won’t break the bank. We’re not planning a wedding, BUT… My husbands best friend is getting married and has asked my help in planning his. I immediately thought of starting off with “Save The Date” Cards and Invitations. We’re still working on the theme of his wedding as it’s mainly what the bride wants right? Depending on her tastes I wanted to present them with some amazing options for their “Save The Date” cards.  Shutterfly was kind enough to send me some samples from their fabulous new line of shimmering and foiled cards. I wish these were around last year when we were getting married as I would have been all over these!

If she’s going more for a traditional simple wedding I’m recommending the Central Characters Save The Date.

It’s a 5×7 card with a Ticket trim.

It’s printed in a portrait layout and you can insert your own photos on the front and back with your info. It’s printed on their Pearl Shimmer Card Stock, which I love!

It gives it such a unique and romantic wedding feel to have that added shimmer and those ticket shape corners. It’s the perfect “Save the Date” for a simple traditional nuptial.

If they go foor that fairy tale themed wedding, I recommend the Clear Beauty Save The Date. This card has princess written all over it! She’s found her prince and the world needs to know when they’ll be tying the knot.

This is a 5×5 square like card with an adorable Scallop Trim. You can also place a photo on the front and back of this card to personalize it along with your information.

It too is printed on the Pearl Shimmer Card Stock which gives it the perfect golden magical touch. It’s the perfect card for that Princess Bride to Be.


For a more modern themed wedding (who are going to keep it a little simpler), I have two recommendations to share with my Hubby’s best friend and his bride. First up is the Pure Radiance Save The Date. This version is in the Navy color, but you can also choose from two other colors a red and a lighter blue.


This is the perfect card for the couple that is making decisions together on the look of everything for their wedding. It has both a masculine and feminine feel too it.


It’s a 5×7 card with Rounded trim and it too is printed on the Pearl Shimmer Card Stock for an added romantic feel to the card.

My second choice is the Simple Type Save The Date. The name says it all. It’s a simple yet styled card that you can customize with your info and photos.


It’s a 5×7 card with adorable Bracket trim. It’s a stylish yet simple Save the Date card option.


And last but not least, If they decide to go for a rustic feel wedding I’m LOVING the Simply Shimmering Save The Date.

I love this Save the Date as it has a Foil design for the SAVE THE DATE wording. You can choose from silver, gold, and red foil. I love foiling on cards with a passion so this would definitely be my pick.

It too is a great 5×7 card with a Ticket trim. You can add front and back images along with your info. The foiling really gives it an extra special touch and it makes the card seem like it was very expensive to make, when in reality it’s very affordable thanks to Shutterfly.

When I present all these choices to my Hubby’s best friend and bride I know they’ll love one of these. I love them all and if I could choose I would probably have a hard time choosing.
