Would you say your save the dates have to match your formal invitations? The invitations we've picked don't have a save the date in the collection but we have found other save the dates we like but they don't match... feel like I'm overthinking this!

Do you need save the dates? Maybe let the important people know with a call or e-mail. Saves money and over thinking. ;)

You can do what you want. It's your wedding. You could maybe look for something in similar colours.

We're opting for save the dates as we're getting married on the Easter Saturday so wanted to give all of the family and friends plenty of time in case they wanted to plan holidays etc. and quite a few work/ live abroad. Thank you though! :)

I did matching ones but that's just what I wanted to do.

I don't think the save the dates need to match. Save the dates are the ones where you can be more creative.

No they don't need to match. No one remembers the save the dates and invitations anyway!

My cousin did her save the dates on Facebook - saved a ton of money as she only needed to send out to those not on social media. Will be putting mine in Xmas cards as wedding is almost 2 years off and have performers & overseas family on the guest list.

Hi, I don't think they need to match, go with whatever you want. I think that the actual invitation should really stand out. Save the dates are good for knowing guest numbers regarding holidays etc. Happy choosing 🌸
