The moment you have your date and location decided on, it is time to send out your save-the-date cards. It is fine if you have not closed up on the exact location, just letting them know the state and city your wedding will be held is sufficient.
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.
The wording of save the date cards never strays far from a central outline. The names of the couple, date, city, and addendum, ’invitation to follow’ or ’formal invitation to follow’ are the only required elements. The save the date card looks like a succinct verse on a small minimalist-style card.
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.
