The sole purpose of save-the-date cards is to give the people you intend to invite to your wedding plenty of advance notice. If, for example, you are planning to marry during the holiday season or a holiday weekend, you’ll want your guests to reserve you wedding date on their calendars months in advance. If you will be inviting guest from out of town who will need to fly in for the wedding, they will need time to make the necessary travel arrangements.
There are really so many ways that you could play with to create your very own save-the-date cards for weddings. Have fun with them, and create a meaningful save-the-date that your guests can retain for keepsake.
Save the date cards can take the form of any message medium, and often do. They sometimes correspond in style to the wedding invitations, or they take the form of refrigerator magnets, brochures, postcards, booklets, or tri-fold letters. The medium is up to you, but the shortness of the message usually lends itself well to magnets or small cards.
Printing your names and wedding date on fridge magnets is an always popular way to inform friends and relatives of your wedding.
If you know what your theme or colors are going to be, you can incorporate that into your save the date cards as well. You can also include your engagement picture if you have one. You can have these cards made at a bridal shop or stationery store. You might be able to get a discount if you order the save the date cards when you order your wedding invitations.
