Find the Best Save the Date Template Options From the Experts at Bliss & Bone

In the months leading up to your wedding day, there are a lot of to-do items on a seemingly never-ending list. Near the top is your Save the Date, and there are quite a few options to choose from. But with help from Bliss & Bone, finding the most on-brand and aesthetically pleasing Save the Date template is within reach—and very easy to accomplish. In this guide, you will be able to learn more about checking this important item off your list and understand other must-have elements of your wedding celebration. 

Below, we will outline the steps you will need to accomplish prior to choosing your favorite Save the Date templates, plus other important wedding insights you and your partner need to know. With so much going on, it is important to stay organized, and we are here to keep you on track and excited for your big day. Not to mention, our beautiful designs and features make it easy and fun to create the best Save the Dates possible. Plus, we will go over other items you can create at Bliss & Bone, including cohesive wedding websites, rehearsal dinner invitations and formal wedding invitations.

What Are Save the Date Templates?

We love the idea of creating your wedding must-haves in the comfort of your own home, and it’s all possible with our extensive Save the Date template lineup. These curated designs are wide-ranging, and include anything from modern elegance to boho-style appeal. Because there are so many ways to envision your wedding, we have created near-countless Save the Date template options to choose the one that feels the most authentic to you, your partner and your relationship.

With this in mind, you can expect a Save the Date template to serve as a starting point for your one-of-a-kind stationery. Once you see a design that speaks to you and your partner, it’s time to customize. The best part of these wedding Save the Date templates is that you take the reins from here. You’ll see spaces where we recommend including the most important information (more on that later!) and then you can input the necessary facts accordingly. 

Wedding Save the Date templates allow couples to start really imagining the cohesive elements that will make up their special day. From the flowers to decor, all of these can coordinate well together — and it really starts with the Save the Date template.

The Different Types of Save the Date Template Designs

Though briefly mentioned earlier in this guide, it’s important to know just how many options you have to choose from when it comes to wedding Save the Date templates. The two main categories, of course, are print versus online. With email Save the Date templates, you can select your design, customize and send it out in minutes. There’s a similar process with personalizing a printed Save the Date template, but those come with a few extra steps, including a proofing process. Of course, it goes without saying that printed Save the Date templates will hike up the costs of your stationery suite. 

Whichever route you decide, there are so many categories to search through to find your perfect Save the Date template. From modern to vintage Save the Date templates, we’ve highlighted a few of our favorites below:

  • Vintage Save the Date templates: Harkening back to the past, this varied group of wedding Save the Date templates feature everything from floral designs to fruit. There are so many ways to interpret vintage Save the Date templates, and this curation proves just that. Think through your color palette and general theme before you select one of these vintage Save the Date templates.

  • Rustic Save the Date templates: If you are getting married in the desert or woods, it’s important to know that most couples gravitate toward rustic Save the Date templates. With an emphasis on nature and warm, muted tones, there’s something super romantic and whimsical about rustic Save the Date templates. For even more inspiration regarding rustic Save the Date templates, we absolutely love the Avery design.

  • Tropical Save the Date templates: Planning a faraway celebration in a seaside escape? Look no further than destination wedding Save the Date templates like our Brando design. The palm fronds and contemporary formatting and font style will get your guests excited about their upcoming travel plans. There are plenty of other alternatives for destination wedding Save the Date templates, too, and ones that will work for everything from a microwedding in Tuscany to a modern celebration in Tokyo.

  • Greenery Save the Date templates: These are all about nature. For a bright, yet subtle pop of color and nod to the great outdoors, these Save the Date templates (like the Imogen design) are ideal for a couple planning an outdoor wedding. Depending on the type of greenery, these designs could easily fall into the destination wedding Save the Date templates category, too.

  • Boho Save the Date templates: With a focus on neutrals, florals and all things nature, a bohemian theme is a particularly popular aesthetic couples often gravitate toward. And with iconic options, like the Delia Save the Date template, you simply can’t go wrong.

  • Photo Save the Date templates: When in doubt, go with a photo! An adorable photo from your engagement photo session or any other time is the ideal complement to several of our wedding Save the Date templates. For example, the Brie Photo Save the Date features a photo as a background with modern text overlay you will absolutely love. Talk with your wedding photographer about setting up a photo shoot leading up to your wedding. The benefits? You will be able to get more comfortable with your photographer and in front of the camera, and you can use those amazing photos for your Save the Date template and more.

  • Classic Save the Date templates: Classically elegant designs are always in style, so it’s an easy choice to make for couples who want to host this type of event. Think through your design preferences and then look through our curation of classic Save the Dates for more examples.

  • Black-and-white Save the Date templates: If you are not exactly sure what your color scheme will be, or want a chic option that will go seamlessly with a black tie affair, black-and-white Save the Dates are a great option. 

  • Modern Save the Date templates: While vintage Save the Date templates are always a good idea, the modern elegance of ultra-chic block text and simplistic designs are a perennial favorite as well. Black and white designs, clean lines and more are all a part of this beloved aesthetic.

You have a lot of decisions to make during the wedding planning process, and your Save the Date is perhaps the first wedding-related piece guests will see. This should be a fun, thoughtful experience and we are here to help you find your perfect match.

How to Customize a Save the Date Template

Our interfaces are extremely easy to use, and we will outline just how you can create your very own print or email Save the Date template at Bliss & Bone. First, you need to select your absolute favorite Save the Date template design, and click “Customize.” Not seeing any design that speaks to you quite yet? Move your mouse over to the “Start From Scratch” button and you will be guided to a spot where you can totally transform a blank Save the Date template and make it entirely your own.

Here are the steps you will need to complete before sending out your Save the Date:

  1. Name your project: At the top left of your screen, you will see “Name Your Project” in red. Change the name with you and your partner’s name, the date or anything else you’d like. 

  2. Select the background: The best part about Bliss & Bone’s designs is that they are completely transformable. If you like the layout and design but are curious about different background options, there are plenty to choose from in this editing field. Look through the unique selections and pick your favorite Save the Date template background.

  3. Confirm the font, sizing and spacing: Again, this Save the Date template is ready to get customized as much as possible. Change the font to one of the many varieties available, increase or decrease the text size and even space out the letters or lines featured on the Save the Date template.

  4. Add a border or shadows: Clicking on the paintbrush icon will direct you to a screen where you can add unique dimensional shadows and borders—and yes, this applies to both print and email Save the Date templates. This is a particular standout feature among our wedding Save the Date email templates because it truly looks three-dimensional on the screen. 

  5. Throw in three-dimensional objects: Just like the shadow effect, another key feature among our wedding Save the Date email template ideas is three-dimensional objects. You can add a flower, stem of leaves, butterfly or other illustrations and graphics to your Save the Date template.

  6. Customize a logo: You can opt in to have our team design a logo just for you and your partner. The easy-to-use process involves sharing your ideas (don’t worry, there are plenty of existing options to draw inspiration from!) and waiting to receive it. By clicking on the “&” sign in your project, you can have the opportunity to drop in your logo. Most of the time, a Save the Date template will have a logo that includes their initials or names, and some have the date or a graphic attached as well.

  7. Add any other images or logos: If you’ve designed something you want to feature in your Save the Date email templates or printed cards, you can upload them in the final icon listed in the project editing display. Make sure it has a transparent background and is already set to the right color.

Along with the design, this section is also where you need to include pertinent information in your Save the Date templates. One of the first things you need to decide on is the date and venue, and these are the key pieces of information that will go into your wedding Save the Date templates. And if you are customizing destination wedding Save the Date templates, you will likely want to include a series of dates, since guests will need to take more time off to travel. Think about the other wedding-related events you might want to host, or if it’s a wedding weekend (versus one day only) and include that somewhere in your Save the Date templates.

Sending Out Your Save the Date Template

Now that you’ve made your print or email Save the Date template, the next step is to send it to your loved ones. This is a big part of the process, and one may include some extra work for you and your partner. If you are sending out a print Save the Date, you will need all of your guests’ addresses. In this stage, you will also want to make sure you’ve clearly written who is invited or if your guests get a plus one. And if you’ve made your choice among the many email Save the Date templates, you have to do the same thing but with email addresses. 

By clicking “Next” in the wedding Save the Date email template, for example, you will move on to a screen with a preview of the email your guests will receive. This should include the event name, date, venue or city and an optional message from the hosts. Our email save the date templates have prompts to include a greeting, your event name, an optional message, the event start and end dates, venue, venue address and sign off. All of this will appear in the save the date wedding email template preview, so you can easily adjust as necessary.

Your wedding save the date email templates will also guide you to an event page, where you can opt in to everything from collecting RSVPs to addresses. This is a particularly helpful feature, especially if you’ve decided to make a save the date wedding email template before sending out printed wedding invitations. This is an easy, seamless way to ask for addresses without needing to call or text your loved ones.

From there, you will go to the recipients section and be prompted to enter the recipient name (or names, if it’s a couple or family), one email and the total number of guests invited. This makes it easy to determine the overall cost, and it allows you to manage how many invites have been sent out and received.

Then what? It’s time to send! You can click “send” and get excited to hear from your loved ones ASAP. 

How Much Do Save the Date Templates Cost?

On average, Save the Dates cost around $150. At Bliss & Bone, online Save the Dates cost $1.20 each for one to nine recipients, and $0.90 each for 10 or more recipients. If you plan to send more than 500 invites, please reach out to us and we will go from there. For printed Save the Dates, our prices start at $362.50 for 50. If you are looking to cut costs, we always encourage couples to check out our online Save the Dates and invitations. With three-dimensional objects and shadows, we can really bring your stationery suite to life and make them feel like they are bouncing off of your guests’ screens. Similarly, our online invitations are the ideal—not to mention, more eco- and budget-friendly—complement to your paperless stationery suite. Many couples who are hoping to reduce the amount of paper they use find that virtual cards are the best solution. 

What to Do Before Customizing Your Save the Date Templates

There is a lot that goes into the planning process, so make sure you have the time and resources to make it all happen. It all starts with analyzing your budget and talking to loved ones and then, the fun really kicks off with your Save the Date. Here, we will break down how you should get organized as your wedding approaches:

  • Determine your budget: Your wedding brings a lot of people together, and sometimes loved ones will offer to cover some of the costs involved in this celebration. Before you start reviewing Save the Date templates, we recommend having an honest conversation with your partner and anyone who might be involved in paying for your wedding. Once that’s been decided, you will have a better idea on how much you can spend on certain vendors—and that includes your wedding Save the Date templates.

  • Find a wedding planner: Wedding planners are optional, but they are often recommended to keep things organized and under control. Talk with friends and family and look through local reviews to determine which wedding planning expert can help you. Planners are often equipped to help weigh in on design ideas, too, so you could even consult these pros on ideas involving your wedding Save the Date templates.

  • Scout out venues: Now, it’s time to determine where you will say, “I do.” Whether it’s in your hometown or on a tropical island, you will likely want to visit the spot where your ceremony and reception will take place. Once you are there, you can see what the venue’s availability is like, set your date and give them a deposit to lock it down. 

  • Collect loved ones’ email addresses and other pertinent information: Before you hit “Send” on those adorable local or destination wedding Save the Date templates, make sure you have everyone’s up-to-date information. That includes guests’ names, email addresses (if you plan to send out a wedding Save the Date email template) or home addresses (if you plan to send a physical card). 

  • Create your wedding website: Yes, this is a big task, but it will really help you and your guests in the long run. It is often suggested that you complete your wedding website before sending out your Save the Dates, since guests can go there to learn even more and it will save you the hassle of answering questions via texts or calls. By giving guests access to FAQs, a link to your registry and more, this is a hub for all things related to your wedding. More on this important part of the process later!

And this is just the beginning! From there, you can follow our steps to creating and designing Save the Date templates at Bliss & Bone. Our streamlined process makes it so simple to create the most on-brand and authentic Save the Dates that you and your partner will both love and cherish for years to come.

When Should You Send Out Your Wedding Save the Date Templates?

Your wedding is coming up, but when exactly should you complete your Save the Date template and hit “Send”? It all depends on the where and when of it all. Typically, we recommend that you send out your Save the Dates six to eight months before the big day. This will allow your guests to have enough time to plan to request time off, find flights or do anything else as your wedding approaches. And if you are getting married in a remote or faraway area, check out our destination wedding Save the Date templates. All of our Save the Date templates include information about where the event will take place and for how long. For example, you can include that your wedding will be a weekend or week-long, if necessary.

If you are planning a destination wedding, it’s not just about the invites. You will want guests to have enough time to arrange their travel plans and maybe even update their passport information. That being said, it’s important to ensure that your destination wedding Save the Date templates are completed and sent out even earlier than the six to eight month mark. About one year before your ceremony or the beginning of your wedding events, it’s a good rule of thumb to send your RSVPs as soon as possible.

As we mentioned above, you need to also factor in the time it will take to manage your budget, book your venue, customize your Save the Date templates, gather your loved ones’ email or home addresses and send them out. 

Complete Your Stationery Suite With Bliss & Bone

Imagine this: You have just customized your Save the Date template and sent it to your favorite people. RSVPs and additional guest information is trickling in and you want to know what to do next. Our advice? Make sure your website is ready to go. This is always optional, but you can include a link to your wedding website on your Save the Date. With similar templates and designs, you can personalize a super cohesive site guests can visit for up-to-date information on all of the happenings before, during and after your wedding. It also serves as an excellent hub for FAQs, where you can include extra tidbits about the desired dress code and plus one information. Not only that, but this is also where many couples share information about their registry. Simply linking to your registries on your wedding website is usually helpful and allows your guests to see the gifts you are hoping to receive. 

Plus, you should also start creating your very own invitations. You can find a perfectly coordinating and cohesive option among our many wedding invites (online or in printed versions), and we highly recommend going with an option that matches your chosen aesthetic. You can design your invites in a similar way to the Save the Dates. Follow our simple directions and you will be one step closer to joining with family and friends for the best day (or days) ever.

Because we offer wedding websites, online wedding invitations and more, it takes the hassle out of matching all elements of your printed and online stationery. This can allow you to create a cohesive and beautiful look for your entire wedding from Save the Dates to the directions to your wedding on your website. In addition to these offerings, you can also create printed or online rehearsal dinner invitations, customize logos and graphics and more.
