Future Sister-In-Law has done us some beautiful artwork to use on our invites. It’s so beautiful that I want to use the exact same thing for the save the date and invite.
That’s not a major faux pas, is it? I could maybe crop it down rather than use the full piece…
Basically there’s a design which extends over the top and right hand side of the paper, then a blank space to the left/bottom. We can always have the invite printed larger or as a card with a middle containing more info if necessary.

Honestly… No one cares about that as much as you. I’d be surprised if even half of the guests remembered what the std’s looked like by the time they got the invites. Do you remember all the std’s and invites you received? Probably not

Honestly I immediately toss every single save the date I get in the trash once it’s written on the calendar. No one will care.

Why not, they can totally match and you could carry it thrpugh on any other stationary you have.

not a faux pas at all – there are many places that do “suites” with mathing Save-The-Date Cards and invites. whether or not people notice/remember is not relevant, since this isn’t anything to side eye anyway. (and i am a person who DOES notice these things, keeps all the Save-The-Date Cards and invite hanging on my fridge and is very judgey about people’s choices. what can i say, i love paper).

No one really cares. I just bought my invitations $45 for all 90 invites, RSVP cards, and direction slips. (MICHAELS IS HAVING CLEARANCE YA’LL!!!) And we are now able to splurge a lil on Save-The-Date Cards by doing Magnets. Vistaprint is having a special! 10 magnets Save-The-Date Cards for $8

I purposely wanted the same look for mine, and I think most people prefer a matching look lol. Not a faux pas IMO at all!
