Your friends and family members can't wait to share in the joy of your wedding day. To ensure they don't miss the big event, you can let them know about the occasion ahead of time with Save the Date cards. CVS Photo can help you design custom Save the Date cards that will spread the word and get everyone on your guest list excited about your wedding.
A Save the Date card is an optional piece of wedding stationery that has become increasingly popular with couples in recent years. The purpose of the save the date card is to let your wedding guests know when the event is in advance, so that they can keep the date open on their calendars. Any couple may choose to send save the date cards, but they're especially ideal for out-of-town guests and for destination weddings. For many couples, save the date cards also serve as engagement announcements.
When you send your save the date cards is up to you, but you'll want to ensure that you have a venue booked before you do. For destination weddings, it's a good idea to mail save the dates 8 to 12 months before the wedding date. If your wedding will be local for most of your friends and family members, you can send the save the date cards out 4 months in advance with your invitations following two months before the wedding.
Including photographs can make your custom Save the Date cards beautiful keepsakes of your wedding. Gather up one or more favorite pictures of the two of you to get started with your custom save the date. Then, you can filter the designs to find ones that are intended for the number and orientation of the pictures that you've selected.
