Wedding Save the Date Cards

Getting married is a special time that you naturally want to share with all of your favorite people. Wedding Save the Date cards are an important part of the wedding planning process. They serve as a polite reminder to your guests to mark their calendars for your big day and ensure that they will be able to attend.

Potential guests don’t RSVP to a save the date, but instead, they use it for their own convenience. They can clear their schedules and make arrangements well in advance to ensure they can be there on your special day. Weddings are a big commitment, and many people will need to make travel arrangements or request time off work in order to attend. By sending Save the Date cards, you are giving your guests the opportunity to plan ahead and make sure they can be there to celebrate with you.

Promises West was absolutely incredible! The quality of the cards were great and the experience was fantastic. I’m so happy we didn’t go with Etsy and we went with a true professional to tell us what to do and more specifically what not to do. I will be using Promises West for all events I do going forward (and the price was very reasonable). Take a look at my wedding invites, they were amazing!

When it comes to creating your Save the Date cards, there are a few things to keep in mind. First, you’ll want to make sure that your cards include all of the important information, such as the date and location of the wedding. You’ll also want to choose a design that reflects your personal style and the overall theme of your wedding. Many couples like to use an engagement photo on their Save the Dates.

Who gets Save the Dates? Mail a Save the Date to everyone you’re definitely inviting to your wedding. It’s useful to have a budget and venue ideas in mind for this process. You’ll know how many guests you can invite, and that will translate to how many Save the Dates you send.

If you have a B List, you shouldn’t send them a Save the Date. They’ll assume they’re invited to the wedding with the first round of guests, and you could get too many positive RSVPs for your venue. Send Save the Dates to your A-list only. You’ll also send Save the Dates even if you know certain guests will attend, like your parents and the wedding party.

Another important aspect of creating Save the-Date cards is the timing. You should send them out about six to eight months before the wedding. This will give your guests plenty of time to plan, but also make sure that the information is still fresh in their mind when it comes time to send out the formal invitations.

When it comes to sending out your Save the Date cards, you can either hand-deliver them or send them through the mail. Hand-delivering them can be a nice touch, but it can also be time consuming. Sending them through the mail is a more efficient option.

In conclusion, Wedding Save the Date cards are a crucial aspect of the wedding planning process. They give your guests ample notice and allow them to plan ahead, ensuring that they will be able to attend your special day. By following the tips outlined in this blog post, you can create and send beautiful, memorable Save the Date cards that will set the tone for your upcoming nuptials.
