Folding Picture Save the Date Cards

I’m pretty sure these adorable tri-fold picture save the date cards speak for themselves, but in case you would like some explanation:  These folding save the dates play off the format used from my “Young at Heart” save the dates with the couple’s childhood photos on the front and engagement portraits inside. But there was a surprise – the groom had a photographer shoot the entire proposal and we’ve included the pictures to prove it. The inside features 7 engagement photos, including 6 from the actual proposal, and the back includes an 8th engagement photo along with accommodation information.

A few October Save-the-Dates

These October brides all took different approaches to their save-the-date cards. The first incorporated a whimsical font on cream linen paper for a elegant and flirty design. The second included her favorite engagement portrait and added a separate card for accommodations. And the last bride wanted to represent the place where she is getting married with a Seattle skyline in the form of a postcard.

Save the Date for your Fall Wedding

You may think you have all summer to plan for your fall wedding, but getting your save-the-dates out is the first step and can be done up to a year in advance.  These fall save-the-date cards might just inspire you to get started!

There are limitless options for your save-the-dates, but these are 3 very popular formats. Picture save-the-date cards are popular, especially if you have engagement portraits you’d like to show off. The save-the-date postcard is another modern and inexpensive option, but if you have a lot of out-of-town guests coming in, it might be more appropriate to include an accommodations card with your save-the-date so they can go ahead and make the necessary plans to stay over night for your celebration.

Young at Heart

When Kate came to me with this wonderful idea, I jumped on the chance to create something so cute and creative. These folding save-the-dates feature the bride and groom’s childhood photos on front with a current engagement shot of them as a couple inside. How can you go wrong with baby picture wedding invitations or save-the-dates? To add a bit more information, Kate included a matching accommodations card for her destination wedding. I adore this purple and green color combination!
