Save-The-Dates: To Send, Or Not to Send… – Black Bride

Save-the-dates are an excellent way to give your guests advance notice of your wedding date and build anticipation for a fabulous event. A creative bride can use her save-the-date as a sneak peak at the fun to come by including nifty-nods to the weddings theme or telling their love story in a unique way! For guests who will have to travel, this gives them time to plan their trip (i.e. flights, requesting time off work, hotel accommodations). The earlier you can get on your guests’ calendars, the more likely they are to be able to attend. However, save-the dates only serve the purpose of giving advance notice, not in replacing the actual wedding invitation.
