Summer always brings to mind thoughts of warm weather and bright, bold colors, so hosting a summer wedding celebration nearly requires that your save the date cards conjure up the same images. Even if you aren’t hosting a beach wedding, you can easily create chic, customized save the date cards that will epitomize your guests’ favorite parts of summer if you follow these easy steps to creating the perfect summer save the date cards for your celebration.
Plus, don’t forget—save the date cards should be sent at least six months in advance of your wedding date.
- Pair a crisp, cool color with a bold, vibrant one. Select colors that are complimentary, but not too similar—think mellow gray with sunshiny yellow, or deep navy blue with crisp, classic white. These contrasts will give your summer save the date cards an extra sense of depth and charm.
- Sending them in winter? Scale back the summer motifs. Instead of covering your save the date cards with palm trees and seashells, simply use a single anchor or the image of a sailboat to indicate to your guests that your sweet summer wedding is looming on the horizon.
- Leave something to the imagination. Don’t be afraid to add a little mystery to your summer save the dates. Hint at the theme of your event, but don’t show your whole hand too soon.
Follow these simple guidelines as an easy way to incorporate summer style into your save the date cards, and you and your guests will be looking forward to your chic celebration in no time!
