Save-the-Dates Basics

Once you have chosen the date for your big day, you will want to let everyone know and ensure that the people you are planning to invite will know so as to keep that date free. For that reason, save-the-dates cards are very popular. These cards will also allow guests to have all the details regarding accommodation and they can then organise any travel arrangements that they will have to make. The save-the-dates card is the first stationary item that you will send out so you need to get it right. That is why it is important to know some of the basics regarding these cards and the following will help:

• It is very important that you make it clear that this is actually a ‘Save-the-Date’ card that you are sending out and not an invitation. The purpose of this card is purely to make sure that the recipient keeps the date of your wedding free.
• Think about the type and size of card that you choose. If you go for a postcard style card then you will not need to have an envelope and it may work out cheaper for you.
• A simple card is probably best and make sure that you are clear when it comes to names, etc. Make sure to include both the first name and last name for you and your intended.
• Make sure to use a font that is easy to read and clear. Choosing too many different fonts or one that looks like handwriting can make it hard for guests to read.
• You may want to choose your theme from now for your invitations and other stationary items. If you have done this, then you can get your save-the-dates cards made in the same theme. You can make the cards unique by adding stickers or other embellishments.
