6 Tips for your D.I.Y. Save The Dates

save_the_date

1. Don’t wait

  • Be early. If you want to send out your invitations in September, go talk to your designer/printer in the July/August. Wedding printing sometimes takes some time with the designing/production…you have to allow some freedom if your printer is busy with other projects.

2. Get inspired

  • Check out Pinterest for new ideas and trending styles.

3. Keep it simple

  • Sometimes the best designs are the minimalistic (think Apple). Also try to limit the number of fonts you use, as too many fonts can be distracting.

4. Spell Check

  • Check it.  Have your mom check it.  Have your 9th grade English teacher check it. Reprinting is time consuming AND costly.

5. Talk to your printer

  • Prices & delivery time can vary greatly based on paper type, thickness, material, and quantity.
  • Be organized. Bring in examples of what you want. Measure the sizes of the finished project. Bring it your dress swatches from David’s Bridal.

6. Make it Personal

  • Think about your hobbies and shared interests and come up with some themes for your save the dates!
