Save the Date wedding cards are very popular these days. They are
especially important if you are having a destination wedding. One tip to keep in mind about "Save the Date" cards -
Send ONLY to those guests you ABSOLUTELY, POSITIVELY know will be on
your final guest list. Things sometimes change and you don't want to
send one and then not invite that person. This is SO IMPORTANT!
Since our daughter was being married in Chicago, she wanted to get the save the date cards out early so that guests could make plans. We looked high and low and finally found the perfect Save The Date announcement cards with a great sketch of the Chicago skyline! They couldn't have been more perfect. We ordered our Save the date wedding cards here. Wedding Paper Divas also has unique Save the Date location specific cards too. See how we helped our bride get her Save the Date cards mailed out!
The bride to be has so much to do! In our family, her sister, the maid of honor, decided to gather all the Chicago based bridal party for a "Save the Date" cocktail party. This was a creative and fun idea to help our bride get all her Save the Date cards ready for mailing. You know I had to fly in for this event.. sounded like way too much fun to miss! Everyone brought a book of stamps, an appetizer and the drink of their choice. I volunteered to make the address labels once our bride sent me her list. We then proceeded to eat, drink, address, stuff and stamp the Save the Date wedding announcements. The out of town bridal party members who couldn't attend sent a beautiful floral arrangement to the hostess' home using all the flowers she will have in her wedding bouquet.
The party was a huge success and so much fun. One word of caution.. get the save the date cards done BEFORE you begin to eat, drink and be merry! We had to appoint a Quality Control manager to audit all the envelopes as stamps and labels were mysteriously found going on upside down!! You can only imagine all the laughing going on around that table. This easy and inexpensive idea was such a help to our bride and a good gathering with her bridal party to discuss lots of wedding details.... from dresses to the upcoming bachelorette party, bridal shower plans and a wedding weekend itinerary.. the bride gave the girls had a chance to weigh in with their own ideas!
