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.
Wording Samples – The content of your save-the-dates should be short, sweet, and to the point – providing a basic who, what, where and when. There is no standard wording; they may be as formal or as whimsical as you’d like. In any case, make sure to include ”Formal invitation to follow” somewhere on the card.
What To Include – When designing save the date cards, keep in mind that the only information that should be included are the date and the location. Travel and area information can also be included. This can be directions from the local airport, recommended resorts or hotels, useful phone numbers, and information on any group booking plans that have been made available. If you are using an online wedding planner, website, or some other online service, you may include that link as an additional courtesy to your guests. At the bottom, be sure to include the words.
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.
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.
