You may also consider doing customized printing on objects that will grab attention. For example, a pinwheel or a fan.
There are many types of save-the-date. Although a save-the-date is traditionally a card, it can also take the form of magnets, bookmarks, or wedding stationery. Any type of save-the-date can be a meaningful keepsake of your wedding day. They also serve the purpose of giving your guests the first indication of what your wedding will be like and what to expect at the wedding reception.
Save the date cards is the best way to announce your wedding plans to family and friends. You want to make sure that everyone you invite has plenty of time to plan for the event. It doesn’t matter if your wedding will be local or if they will need to travel, they need to be prepared. Save the date cards help everyone to do just that. You don’t want to send them out too early, but at the same time if you are going to use save the date cards, you need to send them out soon enough for them to do any good. It’s recommended that you send them out about six months before your planned wedding day.
If you are going to use cards and stamps, you might consider creating your own stamp. You can make these stamps online and use your engagement picture. It’s fun and it makes it very personalized.
Some companies offer digital save the date cards as well. What this means is you have the card to use on your computer and you could send them out to any email address that you have. Since almost every household has a computer and an email address, this would be a good way to save money on postage stamps.
