Virtual Save the Dates From Bliss & Bone

Creating a virtual Save the Date can allow you to save money and time when sharing the news about your upcoming wedding day. Virtual Save the Dates are designed to be sent digitally rather than in print form. This can allow faster delivery and lower costs for sending out these notices to your friends, family members and others you plan to invite to your upcoming nuptials.

Your virtual Save the Date works in much the same way as printed Save the Date cards. These notifications are sent out through email, however, rather than being mailed to the recipients you choose. Creating a virtual wedding Save the Date can allow you to be more flexible with the timing of sending out your notifications and can reduce the cost of sending out these important notifications to those on your guest list.

Virtual Save the Dates offer some important benefits for you, your partner and the environment. If you are considering a virtual wedding Save the Date for your upcoming celebration, Bliss & Bone can provide the perfect options for you.

For couples wondering how to send virtual Save the Dates, the examples and galleries at Bliss & Bone are a great resource for ideas in designing your virtual Save the Date. You can match your virtual Save the Dates to your invitations and your wedding website to create a cohesive suite of stationery for your wedding celebration.

Why Choose a Digital Save the Date for Virtual Wedding Invites?

If you are planning to send your wedding invitations online, choosing a virtual Save the Date is a good first step in this process. Bounced emails received when sending your Save the Date for virtual wedding notifications offer valuable information that can help you correct mistakes in your email lists and can ensure that everyone invited to attend your celebration can receive your invitation by email. Some of the biggest advantages of virtual Save the Dates include the following:

  • Less expensive than printed notices: Printing and mailing your Save the Date will incur both printing costs and postage costs for you and your partner. By contrast, opting for virtual Save the Dates can reduce these costs to a significant degree. Without the additional cost of postage and printing, you can send your Save the Date for virtual wedding notification in an affordable and cost-effective way.
  • Good for the environment: For eco-conscious couples, virtual Save the Dates can be a green-friendly option that eliminates the need for cutting down trees and expending fuel to transport these virtual wedding Save the Date notices to your friends and loved ones. Email does expend some energy. This method of sending your Save the Date for virtual wedding notices, however, can significantly lower the impact of your upcoming celebration to help you feel good about your wedding plans.
  • Easy to design: Bliss & Bone can provide you with detailed instructions on how to send virtual Save the Dates to those on your list. It starts with a design that can be carried through for your wedding website, wedding invitations and other elements of decor and design for your entire wedding. We make it easy to match your virtual Save the Dates to other elements of your wedding stationery and your overall celebration theme. By selecting a background, images and fonts that complement each other and your overall wedding design, your virtual Save the Dates can make the most positive impact on those you want to attend your wedding.
  • Faster delivery times: Your virtual Save the Date can arrive within minutes, not the days, weeks or even months that it can take for mail to make its way through the postal system. If you are planning a long engagement, the right timing for your virtual wedding Save the Date may not be a big concern for you and your partner. When time is of the essence, however, sending a virtual Save the Date for wedding guests can allow you to get the message to your guests quickly.
  • Easy access to your wedding website: By including a link in your virtual Save the Date to your wedding website, you can make it much easier for your invited guests to access valuable information about transportation, hotel accommodations, maps to your venues and other vital info when it becomes available. Online Save the Date options can streamline the process of connecting with your guests and making the most positive impression on those you want to attend your upcoming wedding celebration.

Whether you are looking for the best Save the Date or for virtual wedding invitations that will delight your guests, Bliss & Bone can provide you with practical help in creating these notifications and in determining how to send virtual Save the Dates to those you most want to see at your wedding celebration.

Key Components of Virtual Save the Dates

Your virtual Save the Date for wedding guests should include some basic elements that can be customized to suit your needs. These components are included in nearly all virtual Save the Dates:

  • Date and location: Along with your name and your partner's name, you will need to include the date chosen for your wedding and the city and state in which you plan to wed as part of your virtual Save the Date design.
  • Backgrounds: At Bliss & Bone, we make it easy for you to find the perfect backgrounds for Save the Date or for virtual wedding invitations. Your background is essential to tie together all elements of your wedding stationery from your virtual Save the Date to your wedding invites.
  • Images: Incorporating an image from the Bliss & Bone gallery or uploading a photograph of you and your partner can allow you to create a unique virtual Save the Date. Images are a great visual device that can allow you to capture the attention of those who receive your virtual Save the Dates. This can potentially help you to build excitement among your list of invited guests.
  • Wording: While some virtual Save the Dates do not include wording other than your name, your partner's name, the date and the city, others can include brief text that encourages the recipients to set aside the date indicated. Your wording should be polite and to the point on your virtual Save the Date for a wedding celebration.
  • Fonts: Choosing the right fonts and typography for your virtual Save the Date for weddings can be challenging. At Bliss & Bone, we make it easy for you to select a font that works beautifully with your images, backgrounds and other elements of your virtual Save the Date. Our collection of fonts can allow you to create the perfect look for every item in your wedding stationery suite from your virtual Save the Date to your wedding website and thank-you notes.
  • Text effects: Another way to dress up your virtual Save the Dates is to add some of the text effects available from Bliss & Bone. We offer custom effects that include letterpress options, which can create an unforgettable look for your virtual Save the Date. We can also provide options for incorporating shadows and textures into your virtual Save the Dates, wedding invites and your entire wedding stationery suite.

At Bliss & Bone, we make it easy for you to create the elegant and memorable virtual Save the Dates you want to send to your guests. Your virtual Save the Dates can provide the necessary information while setting the stage for your once-in-a-lifetime celebration of the love shared by you and your partner.

How to Send Virtual Save the Dates

Building your virtual Save the Date can be easy with the interfaces and templates we offer at Bliss & Bone. We offer step-by-step guidance on creating and sending virtual Save the Dates, wedding invitations and wedding websites to make it much easier for you and your partner to bring your own unique and beautiful ideas to life. Here are the steps required to build and send your Save the Dates online:

  • Choose a template: At Bliss & Bone, we offer an array of examples and templates that can make it much easier for you to create a virtual Save the Date that suits your style. If you have already settled on a theme for your wedding, you can select a template that meshes well with that theme. Conversely, if you find a virtual Save the Date template that appeals to you, you can use it as inspiration for your own unique wedding theme and wedding decor.
  • Enter the basic info: Once you have decided on the right template, you can begin entering your name, your partner's name, the date you have chosen and the location of your wedding celebration. If you do not know all the details of your venue, you need not worry. This information is usually shared on your wedding website and on your wedding invitations when you send those to your invited guests.
  • Create a design: Adding the background and imagery you want for your virtual Save the Dates can create an elegant and unforgettable look for your wedding day stationery. You can upload your own images or opt for one of our collection of backgrounds, images and other graphics options. This can allow you to see your virtual Save the Date and test it out before you decide on a final look for this important first contact with your guests.
  • Link to your wedding website: If you and your partner have not yet created your wedding website, doing so before sending your virtual Save the Dates can allow your guests to stay connected to your wedding plans much more easily. Your wedding website can be a repository for wedding registry info, transportation options and maps of the area around your wedding venues. By letting your recipients know about your website, you can also increase excitement about your upcoming wedding that can boost attendance at this once-in-a-lifetime event.
  • Collect emails: You will need email addresses for each person on your guest list before you can send your virtual Save the Dates. This can be accomplished by phone, through social media, by asking relatives and friends or through any other method that works for you and your partner. Asking about email addresses can also allow you to catch up with friends and family members to create closer and more positive relationships.
  • Upload your guest list: Once you and your partner have collected email addresses for all your guests, you can upload this information to the Bliss & Bone interface. Be sure to check for any typos or mistakes before uploading this information. While you can correct mistakes at any point in the process, it can sometimes incur additional charges and can delay the receipt of your virtual Save the Date by the people you intend to invite.
  • Fine-tune and test: You should also proofread your Save the Date and send a sample of this wedding invite to you or your partner. This will allow you to spot any issues with formatting or appearance before sending your virtual Save the Dates to everyone on your guest list. Taking the time to do a test run can also ensure that all elements of your Save the Date are harmonious and create the image of your wedding that you and your partner want to project.
  • Pay and send: Once your Save the Date is completed, you can pay Bliss & Bone and send your virtual Save the Dates right away. Giving your guests plenty of advance notice is essential to ensure the highest attendance on the part of your friends and family members. Sending your virtual Save the Dates early in the wedding planning process is one of the best ways to avoid conflicting plans that could spoil your special day.
  • Update your website: While not strictly part of the process of creating virtual Save the Dates, keeping your website current with all the latest information on your venues, times for your wedding events and other important news can help keep your invited guests in the loop about your plans.

Sending your Save the Dates by email can be convenient and cost-effective. Bliss & Bone makes it easy to navigate the process of creating your virtual wedding Save the Date and can ensure that your recipients receive an elegant online notification of your upcoming wedding plans.

How Much Do Virtual Save the Dates Cost?

The cost of your wedding will depend on the number of guests you plan to invite and the type of venue and catering options you choose. In general, weddings in 2020 cost about $30,000. You and your partner, however, should plan to spend somewhat more for your upcoming celebration because of supply chain issues and rising prices for high-demand items in the wedding industry.

Fortunately, the cost of your virtual Save the Dates is unlikely to create issues with your budget. In general, you can send virtual Save the Date notices for only a fraction of the cost of printed cards and invites. By opting for a virtual Save the Date for wedding celebrations, couples can often reduce their overall expenses for wedding stationery. This can free up money for other wedding essentials, including catering and decor for your wedding reception, which can allow you to create the wedding of your dreams much more easily.

Are Virtual Save the Dates and Invites Socially Acceptable?

In the past, wedding etiquette experts frowned on less formal ways of communicating information about your wedding through email or phone calls. With the modern availability and popularity of email and online communications, however, most wedding professionals have softened their stance toward virtual Save the Dates, wedding websites and digital wedding invites.

Virtual Save the Dates have also become more popular thanks to the green-friendly characteristics of these items of wedding stationery. When combined with an elegant and functional wedding website and online wedding invitations, your digital Save the Dates can allow you to reduce the carbon footprint and environmental impact of your wedding without sacrificing the beauty and charm of your invites and notices.

If most of the people you plan to invite to your wedding already communicate with you by email, virtual Save the Dates could be the perfect option for you and your partner. Your digital Save the Date can make it easier for guests to keep your wedding in mind when planning their upcoming events and can be added to calendars to reduce the risk of conflicting plans among those you want to share this special day with you.
