Reasons Why It Still Matters To Send Save the Date Cards

When it comes to planning your wedding, there’s no denying that all the things you need to take care of can be quite overwhelming. Although you definitely want to incorporate everything in your wedding for it to be successful, the harsh reality is that there are some things you just can’t include, the purpose of which is to limit what you add on your growing list of expenses. However, we believe that in spite of the challenge of determining which things you should leave out, save the date cards must still be handed out to your guests. While you might be under the impression that these cards are no longer as popular as they were back in the day, the thing is there are unique reasons why you should give it a serious consideration. Let’s talk about these reasons below.

1 – It always will be a fun way to announce your engagement.

Since save the date cards were originally conceived to be a basic and convenient way to announce an event, then why not use it as a means to announce to your friends about your engagement and upcoming wedding?

2 – It’s a great way to showcase your wedding theme.

By creating DIY save the dates, you can incorporate your wedding theme to those cards, in the process giving your guests an idea of how your wedding will look like.

3 – Save the date cards can be graced with your own engagement photos.

There is no better way to personalize your save the date cards than putting photos of your engagement shoot and for your guests to see.

4 – Save the date cards act like some kind of guarantee of those who will be attending the event.

Basically speaking, you are sending your selected guests these cards in advance so that they’ll be informed about the event, most especially the date; and in turn, they’ll let you know if they indeed can attend based on the date provided in the card.

5 – They offer flexibility.

If there was one very good reason why save the date cards are still trendy, it’s because they offer flexibility on your part when it comes to inviting your wedding guests.
