Why it is a great idea to send out save the date cards
When it comes to planning a wedding there is no denying that there is a lot that you need to think about. First of all you need to pick a date and then a venue, then, once that is all decided, the time will come to let your guests know of your plans.
Some couples decide the first time that their guests will hear about the details is with the invite, however, there is something that you can send out before this just so that they don’t plan a holiday and have plenty of time to prepare for your celebration.
These come in the form of save the date cards. But, with so much to already think about and invites already on the horizon, is it worth sending out save the date cards for your wedding day?
It helps them to plan for your big day
Even if you are giving someone around a years notice for your special day, you are likely to find that holidays and even other weddings can still fill up their calendar. If you want to make sure that your date is the only one that they note down, then you need to give them plenty of notice and send the date cards do just this.
It is also a good idea for these to be sent out to those who live far away as it will allow them to think about how they are going to travel and ensure that they can book in somewhere to stay if they need to.
It ensures that people know they are invited
Wondering whether you are going to be a guest for a wedding isn’t the nicest feeling and neither is assuming that you are going to be invited to a wedding that you are not actually going to go to. When you send out a save the date card, it is usually only to those day time guests at your wedding, which means that you can ensure that they know that they are going to be invited and they don’t have to wonder.
They don’t cost that much
We know that keeping to a budget isn’t always easy when it comes to your wedding and therefore anything that you may see as an extra cost isn’t going to be something that you are going to want to spend out on. However, the good news about save the date cards is that they don’t have to cost the Earth. There are plenty of lower cost options that you can explore that will allow you to send out quality cards that will still keep you with enough money to pay out for other parts of your wedding.
So, there you go, save the date cards are definitely worth paying out for. Whether it is just to make sure that people know the date, or to get the ball rolling with all the “official” wedding planning; it is worthwhile organising save the date cards for your big day!
