It’s that time of year when the mailbox starts getting filled with fun mail instead of bills! Save the dates have become the perfect first introduction of your wedding to your guests. The fun engagement session images get to be shared and all the excitement of the wedding day gets started! This year I am partnering with Basic Invite and their beautiful products to enhance your save the dates.
The products they have are beautiful – and so easy to match with any theme. Check out their website for so many save the date templates to choose from for that perfect piece of mail for your guests to receive. What I love about save the dates is the opportunity to share your personality with the type of announcement you choose and the images you choose to put on it!
My favorite lately is the save the date postcards. It’s fun to not cover up the announcement with an envelope and it saves on postage too! Choose to have one large image on the front and a few fun small ones on the back with the rest of your details.
Another fun option has been wedding save the date magnets. I think these are best for weddings that are further out so guests don’t lose them by putting them on the fridge. The designs are just a beautiful as a regular save the date and it’ll be even more memorable for guests.
Whatever you choose for save the dates make it about you! Basic Invite has so many custom options to make it your own. Pick from over 40 different envelopes and over 900 invite sets. Pick a fun images that show your personality.
BUT one thing I wish I would have used when planning my own wedding is the option to have them mail the invites for you. They have this awesome service that helps you collect all of your addresses from your guests and then they can use that information to help ship your save the dates and invites to your guests directly. This is an absolute timesaver – and you know it’ll be done right.
Seriously, checkout everything they have to offer from save the dates, wedding invites and even websites.
