Posted June 6, 2012 by in Articles | No comments yet

Save the date cards for weddings are crucial to have these days.

In fact, they’re one of the primary things people think to do when their wedding date is determined.

How come?

Well, for a few reasons: Save the dates discourage friends and family from selecting that date for another celebration — such as a vacation, reunion, anniversary party, or even another wedding. Naturally, your immediate family wouldn’tintentionally plan something for that day, however you have no idea who else could be organizing something with overlapping guests.

Save the dates are also a nice way to simply spread the word and grab your well deserved spotlight for a little while. Being engaged is a momentous occasion. Enjoy the attention!

Before you get going, here are some simple tips to think about.

Tip 1 – Buy Wedding Save the Dates on the internet.

Sure, your neighborhood print shop has certainly printed plenty of invitations and announcement notices for weddings, communions, bar or bat mitzvahs, and other religious celebrations.

But today, many websites have a lot more experience, specialization, flexibility, and a ton of options.

Odds are, they will also save you a lot of money too!

Buying over the internet will also free you from searching through books and catalogs, and will enable you to view tons of professional save the date examples from your home or office.

And because it’s on the web, your favorites are simple to show to others, including close friends and parents for advice and feedback – instead of having to bring them into a store.

Tip 2 – Know What You Want? Think About These Ideas…

You have more possibilities than you might realize.

The primary (and most obvious) option, is a typical, professional card that is designed just like a wedding invitation would be. Elegant and simple.

There are also photo-cards, which allow you to insert a favorite image into the design. This is a terrific, customized option that people love. Again, you will have a wide selection of designs to choose from.

You can also choose save the date magnets, which offer essentially the same flexibility as standard or photo cards, and they’ll affix to the fridge too!!

Finally, business cards are also an option! They can be designed as professionally as other options, but at a fraction of the price. These even come in magnets as well!

Tip 3 – Don’t wait!!

When it comes to save the dates, the sooner the better!

As soon as you have your wedding location chosen and booked, it is time to send out your announcement! The sooner you do, the sooner you’re heaped with attention, but more importantly, the more likely your guests are able to attend your wedding. You’d be amazed at how many wedding conflicts happen… mostly because friends tend to be close in age and have spurts of engagements around the same time.

So look around, determine what you like, and choose your save the date without haste. Get it out of the way so you can proceed to more important choices like the music, food, and decorations.

Good luck and of course, congrats!
