Save The Dates: Why You Need Them

If you’re tossing around the idea of whether or not you need to send out save the date cards for your wedding, the answer is YES!  Not only do they create excitement for your upcoming wedding, but it also ensures that your guests mark their calendar for the big day.  Not to mention, they’re so fun to design!

Creating a custom designed save the date gives you a chance to show off your engagement pictures and introduce your wedding theme.  After every engagement session, my brides always asks me where the best place is to order their save the dates.  Look no further because Basic Invite is the company for you!  Designing your save the dates should be fun, and remember that it’s your first official announcement of your wedding.

Save the dates and wedding invitations serve two different purposes.  Wedding invitations aren’t sent out until 6-8 weeks before the wedding.  So it’s important to give your guests plenty of time to make arrangements, especially if there is travel and hotel reservations involved.  Sending out save the dates will help create a positive experience for everyone involved.
