I don’t think the save-the-dates have to match the invitations. Ours do but that is just because we happened to love the templates for both. You can do really whatever you like with save-the-dates. I sometimes think that using save-the-dates can allow the couple some more license to express themselves since they tend to be not as formal as the invitations that follow. There are some couples that just let their creativity shout from all facets of the stationery and that’s awesome too! I am not creative whatsoever, lol, so I just used their template with my colors. :-p

Save the Dates don’t have to match at all, as most Save-The-Date Cards are sent out way in advance of even looking at your invites. We actually did bookmarks for our Save the Date I love the idea of a vintage Brooklyn Bridge postcard.

Our STDS don’t match our invitations at all! Seriously – not even a little bit. I’d say go with the one you like!

@BKBride2014:  I think it depends on how far in advance of your wedding you send the Save-The-Date Cards out.  If you mail them out 1 year (or more) before the wedding then I think it doesn’t matter whether they match your invitation suite.  In fact, I think mailing them out way in advance of the wedding gives you the liberty to have a lot of fun with the Save-The-Date Cards. 

If you end up sending out the Save-The-Date Cards closer to when you mail out the invites then you might want them to at least coordinate with one another, whether it be a common color or theme etc.  

My wedding has an old NY/art deco feel to it Smile  I’m thinking out loud here but does the Bridge on the STD have to be the Brooklyn Bridge?  If you are looking for a STD with a bridge on it, you might want to use an art deco inspired bridge like the Golden Gate bridge. If the STD you like comes with the brooklyn bridge printed on it, perhaps you can use art deco inspired lettering?
