Save the date cards To be or not to be?

Brides Essence - - The Bachelors & Bachelorette ideas - by Bron­wyn Hen­drikz

A Save the date card is be­com­ing al­most as im­por­tant at the in­vi­ta­tion it­self these days. They are early re­minders to your guests to keep the date open for your pend­ing nup­tials and alert the guests to ex­pect an in­vi­ta­tion. This is es­pe­cially nec­es­sary for guests that may need to travel and gives them a chance to plan, book flights, ac­com­mo­da­tion and get time off from work etc. Early no­tice means more guests will be able to at­tend. The gen­eral times­pan to send them out is be­tween 6 - 9 months be­fore the wed­ding. This also helps get more con­crete num­bers for plan­ning pur­poses in terms of ta­bles, re­cep­tion, bar and favours cre­at­ing less stress. Save the dates can in­tro­duce the tone and mood of the wed­ding. It can be any­thing re­ally, post­cards, mag­nets, pho­to­graphs etc. The in­for­ma­tion needs to be brief, as more de­tail should be shared in the for­mal in­vi­ta­tion. De­tails that should be in­cluded are: The cou­ple’s names, clear date and venue and a note that the for­mal in­vi­ta­tions will fol­low.
