Save the Date

by SueKafoglisEvents

As a country girl, I believe it is always good southern hospitality to send out Save the Date reminders before the invitations. Save the Date reminders can be creative and personal with a thematic flare. Similar to an invitation, a Save the Date will not only show when and where  a wedding will take place, but can set the mood for the entire event. The Save the Date card is a guest’s first impression of a wedding.  

The most unique and personal Save the Date cards are ones that feature the bride and groom in a sweet southern locale.  To set  the photos apart from others, use props to set the mood.  The date can be handwritten on chalkboards or bride and groom held ribbon stringed with the wedding date.

Choose what type of Save the Date card to send. Think about cards or invitations you have recieved in the past. Ask yourself what qualities made those reminders memorable. Save the dates can be keepsakes like magnets or photobooth pictures, or even shaped like mason jars to add a southern kick.  Make the guest want to keep this Save the Date on the fridge and not on the bottom of a trash can. 

These simple ideas for the Save the Date card can excite your guests and leave and important first impression for your special day.
