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.
Your save-the-date can take any size or form. If you decide on mailing cards out, then your cards can be the size of a postcard, or even smaller. Make sure the size does not cramp the wordings together.
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.
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.
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.
