Save the Date cards are a fairly recent idea. Sending Save the Date cards is really a tremendously thoughtful thing to do.
The idea is that sending your guests advance notice of the date of your wedding gives them the opportunity to mark their calendars much sooner than they would have if they only received a wedding invitation. One really great idea is the Save the Date magnet. There are many clever designs available that include your personalized message, a calendar with the date marked, or even a photo of the two of you. Your guests will love these Save the Date magnets that are a warm and friendly reminder to save the date for your big day.
Perhaps a small notebook or a key chain charm with your own custom save the date message would be better suited to people on your guest list. These are small gifts that your wedding guests are sure to appreciate.
If you prefer Save the Date cards or Save the Date postcards, The Wedding Printer has designs to fit any theme. For example, if your wedding is going to take place at an exotic beach resort your Save the Date card can reflect the beach theme.
These Save the Date cards can serve a double purpose by allowing your guests to buy airline tickets and reserve hotel rooms well in advance of your wedding. This will help them save money and avoid a last minute rush. Showing this kind of thoughtfulness is a great way to begin this new facet of your relationship.
