You’ve picked a date and booked the venue! Your nearest and dearest will probably know all the details, so now’s time to let the rest of your guest list know. This is where save the dates come in handy. But how do you send them out?!
The main pieces of information that you need on them are:
- Who you are, so they know who is inviting them!
- The wedding date.
- The location of your wedding ceremony and reception.
- Your wedding website (if you have one).
Save the dates don’t need to be fancy. You could download a template and print them out on a card from Hobbycraft.
So now you have your save the date, how should you send it out?
The Digital Option
You could use an E-Invite website. These platforms usually have many different designs to choose from. The problem you could run into is with deliverability. Spam filters are getting stronger, and you might find that guests don’t receive their invites because it was either blocked or placed into their junk folder.
Yep, sending your cards in the post. It can give you the peace of mind that everyone will have received it because they receive a personal copy. They can then stick it on their fridge as a reminder.
You could also choose to hand-deliver them if you have a small wedding and your guests live locally.
At the end of the day, sending out your save the dates is the best way to ensure that you get the most RSVP’s so that you can accurately guess how many people will be attending your wedding.
Whether or not you choose to send them digitally or physically is up to you!
