3 Steps to Create Your Dream Save the Date Templates That Every Wedding Couple Needs

If you've recently gotten engaged your head is most likely spinning thinking about vendors, color palettes, cake tastings, dress fittings, etc. The question of "Where do I even start?" keeps popping in your head even though (my brides & grooms) know YOU GOT THIS! As your photographer I'm here to help in many ways, but let's start from the beginning, which starts with save the date templates!

Think of your save the dates as a "save the date postcard" to your biggest day with the person you love the most. You choose a date, venue and time, and "BOOM!" out goes this piece of mail to all your family and friends.

Sounds simple right?

Now let me explain how much more simple it can be with Basic Invites save the dates!


1. Go to Basicinvite.com and click on "wedding" on the top far left side. Then on the far right side you'll see "Save the Date" and the many customizable options that come with it.

2. After looking through the options think about an option that best fits the vibe of your wedding day.. do you have a favorite engagement session photo? Do you two love traveling? Do you collect magnets? Make your save the date represent the two of you and your vision!

3. Once you have both decided your vibe - click on the option and start that customization!

Below you'll see I chose the "save the dates postcard templates" with simple steps you can add photo(s), edit the colors, text, and more. Then once you're all set you can even order samples before committing to a whole size order which I love!
