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.
You want your save-the-date to look unique, personalized and funky; so that it can attract your guests’ attention and make them want to attend your wedding. Save-the-date cards for weddings should ideally reflect the couple’s personality, and the wedding tone.
Although save-the-dates are not absolutely necessary, these cards have increased in popularity with the rise of destination weddings and modern guest lists spread throughout the country. Since they are a relatively modern concept, no real rules apply – a fact which sometimes causes confusion for brides when planning their wedding stationery. I’ve sorted through the information that’s out there to bring you the real ins and outs concerning save-the-dates.
You may also consider doing customized printing on objects that will grab attention. For example, a pinwheel or a fan.
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.
