Brides tend to favor the idea of sending out save-the-date cookies, but make sure that you include an additional slip of paper so the information does not get eaten up with the cookies.
If you are on a tight budget, you can either do it yourself, or get predesigned cards. Look out for them online, or go through stationery stores. These work equally well. Be sure to keep your messages short and simple, and you’re on your way to making your own wedding save-the-date cards!
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.
You should send save-the-date cards to all of your intended guests when either of these circumstances fit your situation. Even friends and family members who you already know will attend should be sent a card.
If you know what your theme or colors are going to be, you can incorporate that into your save the date cards as well. You can also include your engagement picture if you have one. You can have these cards made at a bridal shop or stationery store. You might be able to get a discount if you order the save the date cards when you order your wedding invitations.
