Some couples like their wedding save the date cards to match their wedding venue or their theme. If you know these things, then it’s a fantastic way to give your guests a taster of what to expect on the big day.
However, don’t panic if you find a save the dates design which you love, but which doesn’t really match either your theme or your destination. This is an opportunity to express your individuality, and you can always use your invitations to be a bit more thematic.
While save the dates are not an essential part of your wedding planning, they are certainly a fun one! They have a practical purpose (helping your guests find out more about the wedding, and not overbooking for that day). But they are also just a wonderful way to get a bit of hype built around the wedding day.
