Save the date invitations are most important if your wedding falls during peak holiday season. Also with the popularity of destination weddings, they are now the norm.
Your save the date wedding invitations need to let your busy friends and family know the date of your special event. At this stage you do not need to include your wedding RSVP information as you will send out your wedding invitation nearer the time.
Your save the dates are also a way to share other important information such as travel arrangements and accommodation that need to be made. Actually use the words "Save the Date" on the front of your card. Believe it or not, some people mistake Save the Date cards as invitations.
You can create your own save the dates or there are many available on line or at the stationery store. There are also many shapes and sizes available. What's more they are not always made of paper,
personalized save the date magnets are also one idea. All your details printed in beautiful full colour on a magnet. It makes a lovely keepsake too.
