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.
Another well received way is to print a mini calendar page with a 3-hole punch so your friends can attach it to their own calendars. Of course, you would have to circle or decorate the day that belongs to you.
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 you should do – Since this will be your first written contact with most of your guests, it’s important that they make a good first impression. Make sure that you spell each guest’s name correctly. If you are unsure about the spelling of someone’s name, look it up or contact someone reliable.
