Happy Wednesday! Recently, we’ve started to think seriously about save the dates. One thing we’ve been debating is the best time to send them out. I don’t want them to get lost in the Christmas letter shuffle, but November seems too early — that would be ten months out — and January seems too late — eight months out. Thoughts? When is too early (or late) to send save the dates, in your opinion?
One thing I have decided is where our save the dates will come from: Minted! As you all know, I love Minted. (I’ve previously posted about them here, here, and here!) I love that their products all come from independent designers, I love the quality and price combination, and I love that they are very open to customization.
Some of you might be surprised that I’m not making our save the dates myself (especially considering I designed a set for my sister), but I’ve decided to take the easy route this time and save my energy and creative ideas for the invite suite :) Plus, I honestly do love Minted, and I’m happy to have the opportunity to use some of their pieces!
Now, which design to send? There are a few we’re considering, and I’d love your input.
A. “Fireflies” save the date ($209 for 100)
This is such a sweet design, but I think it might not be formal enough for the celebration we’re planning.
C. “Midnight Vineyard” save the dates ($190 for 100)
Simple and striking. I think this design fits well with the style of our wedding.
D. “Fling” save the dates ($163 for 100)
Lighthearted and lovely. This one reads a little more “spring” than “late summer” to me, though.
E. “Winter Flourish” save the dates ($190 for 100)
Love the swooshy font! That blue is a gorgeous shade, too.
What do you think, ladies? Share your pick below, por favor!
