The holidays can be a magic time of year for many couples as engagements are proposed during this festive season. With engagements underway you will begin planning for your wedding in the beginning of the new year. If you’re planning a spring or summer wedding, now is a great time to send out save the date cards. You may be thinking, ‘save the dates…my wedding is months away!’ However, save the date cards should be mailed out 6-8 months prior to your wedding. If you are having destination wedding or have guests attending from out of state, save the date cards are extremely important. They allow guests to reserve your wedding date(s) to avoid conflicting plans and also give your guests time to save and plan for hotel or flight accommodations.
Save the date cards can match your wedding theme, color scheme or style or they can be completely different. As they are sent so far in advance of your wedding date, you can be as creative or as classic as you’d like. We offer a variety of save the date styles including ribbons, digital photographs, floral prints, traveling themes, beach and cityscapes and more.
When writing your save the date cards remember to include the below pertinent information:
-name of engaged couple
-date of your wedding
-location of wedding (city & state can be sufficient)
-end save the date with “invitation to follow” or “details to follow”
Your engagement is a very important time in the beginning of the rest of your life. Be sure to send out your save the date cards so that all of your desired guests can attend.
