Autumn is right around the corner! Get inspired with these fall save the date card ideas to share with guests. Read on to find out more and subscribe for the latest to your inbox.
If you’re newly engaged and set the date, congrats! You’re on the right track to fulfilling all the proper wedding checklist items at record speed.
The next step on your checklist will be to send save the date cards to family and friends. You need to send them 6 to 9 months before the wedding — or up to 1 year for a destination wedding — so guests have a proper “heads-up” to set aside the date of your celebration.
Since you do NOT need to match save the dates with your invitations, feel free to go wild with design options. Choose autumnal colors to tie into the upcoming season, use gold gilded edges for a dramatic effect, and incorporate your favorite engagement photos into the design for a personalized look and feel.
Additionally, you can opt for something “extra” like gold foil or vellum to make it your own.
It’s all about presentation, after all. :)
In this blog post, we’ll show you the best autumn save the date card ideas from Minted to align with the season and spread the word to your family and friends: “We’re getting married!”
