Cost Effective Save The Dates
Newly engaged? Congratulations! Now, it’s time to let your guests know so they can mark the date on the calendar. And the best way is with a save the date card.
Here are some FAQs about Save the Dates, as well as some tips to make them the most cost effective.
What are Save the Dates? Save the Dates are an official announcement of your wedding date and location, and that they will be invited.
Do we have to send them? While it’s not mandatory, it is a good idea. It lets your guests know your date, so they can request off work and make travel arrangements. It also sets the overall tone of your wedding. The more formal the wedding, the more likely a printed card will set the tone you want your wedding to have.
When do we send them? Typically 4-6 months in advance. Earlier if you are doing a destination wedding.
Who gets them? Every household, not every guest.
How should we send them? There are so many options, from digital, to postcards, to magnets. However, each one has a pro and con. Digital is the most cost effective, but how tech savvy are your guests? Or they may get filtered to your spam folder. Tangible items such as postcards and magnets, your guests are more likely to hang it up where they will be reminded of your event. One tip to help save money is to divide your save the dates. Send magnets and postcards to your closest family and friends, and digitals to those less likely to attend or who are more tech saavy.
