Trends & Ideas – These cards will be the first impression of your wedding festivities, so take advantage of this opportunity to build excitement amongst your wedding guests. If you already know the colors and/or theme of your wedding, now’s your chance to provide a sneak peak. Or try including a favorite love poem or quote that symbolizes your relationship. Here are some of my favorite ideas and trends: 1. Use vibrant colors that will ”pop” as soon as guests open the envelope. 2. Incorporate graphics that correspond with the season and/or location of your event. If you are planning a fall wedding, try including colorful leaves, or include seashells for a wedding on the water. 3. If the timing is right, turn your save-the-date cards into holiday greetings. Incorporate your engagement photo or another photo taken shortly after the proposal. 4. Who says they have to be printed stationery? Set yours apart by turning them into scrolls, pens, stickers, magnets or a creative calendar-marker. You are only limited by your imagination.
Printing your names and wedding date on fridge magnets is an always popular way to inform friends and relatives of your wedding.
You may also consider doing customized printing on objects that will grab attention. For example, a pinwheel or a fan.
Save-the-date stickers are also a good option for your guests to stick them into their little organizers or appointment books. Remember your bright and bold colors to catch their eye!
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.
