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.
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.
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.
Do include photos that are relevant to your wedding; and use colors that relate to your wedding. For example, if your wedding venue is to be decorated with white and pink decorations, then use the same color theme for your cards as well.
Stop to think for a moment: You have painstakingly put together your wedding event, and done all you could to make this as perfect as you wished; but you take a look around your guests and realized that only half of them were able to make it to your wedding. You obviously missed out your wedding save-the-date cards to ensure your guests kept themselves available on this special day of yours.
