Why You Should Send Out Save the Dates

Organizing all the details of a wedding has never been easy –and it is more than likely that it will never be facile either, especially with the wide range of choices, etiquette rules and general expectations that come with such a hugely important moment in one’s life.

Why you should send out Save the Dates, though? What role do they play in the entire wedding planning process? We have gathered some tips for you – so read on if you want to find out more.

  • – Well, first and foremost, they are a great way to announce everyone that you are getting married (and they are invited). This will give people plenty of time to make arrangements for travelling (take the days off, if needed, book the plane tickets and the accommodation, etc.). As a consequence, there’s a lot more likelihood that people manage to do everything in time and actually get to your wedding.
  • – Furthermore, Save the Date cards are a truly wonderful opportunity to share some engagement pictures with your loved ones, your relatives and your friends. After all, you did that special engagement photo session (and maybe you took your hair and makeup trial then too) – so why not take advantage of it and double its meaning and functionality?
  • – Last, but surely not least, Save the Dates are a great option for sharing information that usually stays away from the invitations proper (but sometimes gets into the invitation suite). For instance, your wedding website can be shared with the Save the Dates – and that’s where people can find venue directions, registry information and other tips that are not adequate for the invitation itself.
