Save the Dates continue to be a growing trend among engaged couples. They are a great way for couples to announce their engagement to family and friends, as well as inform them of the date and location of the wedding so the guests can plan accordingly. We have lots of unique save the date cards for couples to choose from, as well as different formats like postcard save the dates and save the date magnets. Each of our formats is represented in our 5 best-selling save the dates!
1. Big Date Save the Date Postcards are our #1 best-selling save the date cards! This card features your favorite photo along with the date on the front. On the back you can personalize with your text and choose the background color you want. Postcards are a great option for couples as they save on time (you print your return address on the card) and money (cheaper stamps).
2. Pop Up to Perfection Save the Date Cards definitely deliver the wow factor and engage your recipients to flip open each of the three panels to reveal your date. You also get to add a total of four favorite photos and include a little detail about the proposal for your guests to experience the excitement with you.

Congratulations on your engagement! A few of my newly engaged friends have asked me about save the date etiquette, so I thought I would share the advice I was given when planning my wedding.
A save-the-date announcement is a great way to inform your guests of the date and location of your wedding, so that they can plan accordingly. It is especially nice if you are planning a destination wedding, or if a lot of your guests will be coming from out of town. There are a few rules of save the date etiquette to follow:
- Send save-the-dates to everyone on your list, even if you already know whether or not they are attending.
- Address the announcement only to those who are invited to the wedding. This will eliminate confusion about whether a boyfriend or girlfriend is invited, or whether they can bring the kids.
- We recommend mailing save-the-date announcements as much as six months before the wedding. This will give your guests ample time to make travel plans.
