Save-the-date cards are a fun wedding stationery item. They allow you to let your guests know that you have settled on a date, and that they're invited! Additionally, these cards can set the tone of your wedding, so be creative. Here are a few tips to create the perfect invite:
Add your photo
Play to everyone's sentiments by placing your picture on the save-the-date card. Take nice engagement photos with you and your future spouse and feature one on the card. Showcase the photo in black and white for a classic look or opt for full color.
Make an announcement
If you haven't let everyone know that you are getting married, then you can do so on the save-the-date cards. Additionally, you may have another announcement that you can reveal on the card, like if you are expecting a baby or you are moving to a new state after the wedding.
Set the theme
If you are having a destination wedding, you'll definitely want to showcase the theme of the locale on the card. So if you're jetsetting to a tropical island for your nuptials feature some palm trees on these wedding invitations.
