Use A Save The Date Card Wisely

Planning you Philadelphia wedding can benfit from using a save the date announcement. With so many great Philly venues to choose from, your save the date announcement can incorporate a Philly motif to draw attention to the location of the wedding.

Soon after reserving the wedding service with your church or synagogue and choosing the site for the wedding reception, the important days for the wedding are generally decided. Armed with this information, many engaged couples select a save the date card to supply their guests a “heads-up” in making their travel arrangements.

While many will choose to send a fairly simple save the date card - often with a photo of the bridal couple - requesting their guests to schedule their airline reservations, others make use of it to share important travel advice. As an example, accommodation details, convenient airports and, possibly, a wedding web site can be included with your save the date announcement.

Bridal couples tend to be under the misguided perception the save the date announcement has to be matched with the wedding invitation and other wedding papers. While very helpful, this suggests that one has already decided what wedding invitation they will use. This is usually not the case.

Seasoned stationers propose getting a casual save the date announcement that gives a sense of excitement for the upcoming wedding. While a photo of the engaged couple can be a favored option, bridal couples will select a seaside motif for the island wedding, a colourful leaf for an autumn wedding and, conceivably, a snowman for a winter wedding.

There are hundreds, or even thousands, of options for save the date invitations. Many engaged couples find it simpler to pick a theme that reflects the rush and excitement of one’s special day to narrow down the invitation opportunities.

For people who possess a bit more time to plan, experienced stationers advise including helpful travel and lodging details with their save the date announcement.
