Save the Date

The ring is the beginning of everything, is the time when you start to think about the planning of your wedding and decide who will be your guests. How can they know about your wedding date? By sending them just a Save the Date Card!The Save the Date Card is a pre-invitation card officially announcing your wedding date and lets guests know that they are invited!But when do you send a Save the Date Card?When your marriage will be celebrated in a foreign country and your guests are involved for two or three days, instead of the single day of the celebration. It is important to inform well in advance if you want everyone to be present at your wedding.The postcard Save the Date has to be sent at least eight months before the date of the ceremony (or even earlier in the case of a distant destination), so they have all the time for booking flights and holidays.The Save the Date Card must report the date of the ceremony highlighted along with the names of the couple and the location, while all the details will be announced later, through the classic wedding invitations..The Save the Date Card is usually a postcard or a magnet, but there are also electronic reminders sent by mail.Here are some samples…..from the classical image of the calendar.

  • There is plenty of choice!
