You may also consider doing customized printing on objects that will grab attention. For example, a pinwheel or a fan.
Preparing family and friends for your wedding is a kind and thoughtful gesture. There are many different ways to create save the date cards, some of these ideas can be a bit pricey, while others are inexpensive, but these cards are a great way to announce your wedding plans to your guests ahead of time.
When you decide to include photos in your cards, it is advisable to use photos that were taken after your engagement. It could be about how your life has changed, or how the both of you have walked thus far.
Photo strips are the ’in’ thing nowadays. Instead of just having one photo on your save-the-date cards for weddings, it is trendy to include a few photos that capture your personality as a couple.
Who Needs them? If your guest list includes a number of out-of-towners, or if your wedding takes place during a holiday or other peak time, you are a prime candidate for save-the-dates. Since invitations don’t go out until 6-8 weeks before the big day, save-the-dates are the perfect way to give wedding guests a preliminary heads up so they can begin making travel arrangements. These days, however, more and more brides send these cards regardless of the time and location of their wedding. Why? Save-the-dates provide a fun opportunity to get the word out and foreshadow the style of your big event.
