Photo ‘Save the Dates’ are a great way to share engagement photos with family and friends while giving them a heads up on your wedding date and location. They’re also an ideal way to share your wedding website, which can include directions, accommodations, photos, sweet stories, registry information and more. Today we are sharing a few of Smock’s favourite photo Save the Dates to give you some ideas on ways to customize your own! Available in Hong Kong at The Wedding Company.
Go big: Ashley and Klint chose a larger S-8 invitation size for their photo save the dates, and added tawny matte foil for an extra touch of glamour.

Tie it all together: Tanya and Matthew took advantage of our 6+ printed pieces discount (and saved 10%!) for their wedding stationery. They printed their save the dates and their Barnesly invitations at the same time, and tied it all together by matching the fonts and adding blue to their save the date envelope liners to match the blue watercolor wash on their invitations.
