Planning a wedding can seem overwhelming. There are so many items to keep in mind and various schedules to keep before your big day arrives. It is difficult to remember that your guests have schedules to keep as well. That is why save the date cards are a great way to help ensure your loved ones know in advance about your special day. Save the date invitations allow you to notify your guests well in advance so that they are able to plan ahead. It is a good idea to mail your save the date cards 6 to 8 months ahead of time.
Formal or Informal?
Choosing whether to go formal or informal with your save the date invitations can depend on various factors. You can send your invites as postcards, magnets, or as a traditional save the date card. If your wedding will be formal, you can keep your cards simple by stating the date and location of your wedding. However, if you still want to keep it fun and lighthearted, informal save the date cards have a variety of options. You can add your favorite couple photo, different colors and fonts, as well as fun sayings that symbolize both of your personalities.
Should You Coordinate?
Another dilemma many couples run into is whether or not to coordinate their save the date cards with the style and theme of their wedding invitations. If you want to synchronize both invitations, it can take a bit of pre-planning, but you can accomplish it and with great effect. If it is still too far out in advance to know what your wedding invitations will look like, do not over think the process when it comes to your save the date cards. Choose a style that suits you both and reflects your personalities.
