Many brides might feel it’s silly to mail out save the date cards. Others probably think this gesture is also a waste of money. However, in our super busy world where people have their calendar planned out at least six months in advance, it would be wise to give your future guests a heads up about your big day. So many options are now available where you could even print your own or purchase predesigned stock and just add the names, date and location. Online vendors also offer inexpensive ways to produce save the date cards. Whatever method you choose, the little bit of time and money spent will be worth it when you don’t wind up with half of your guests not being able to attend because of prior commitments.
