Things to AVOID before sending your Save the Date
A wedding is one of the important days of your life and also for the people who are looking forward to attending it. Therefore sending a Save the Date is a must as giving your guests a heads up is really important and it has to be done it right. After getting engaged, the wedding planning gets into full swing which is also the time to get your guests in the loop. For this, the first thing is sending a save-the-date card which is basically pre-invitation to officially announce your wedding date. It is also a way to tell your guests to block those dates.
Here are some things to keep in mind before sending them…
Forgetting Sending Them
Yes, not sending a Save the Date is a mistake in itself. Avoiding it means doing yourself a disservice, especially if you’re having a destination wedding or a three-day affair. This helps the give guests to clear their schedules, make travel arrangements and generally try to make it possible for them to visit.
Sending Them Too Late
The whole planning process is chaos in its own. It starts with fixing a date and looking for a perfect venue. If we talk about Delhi NCR. There are some banquet halls in Gurgaon by FNP Gardens that are so high in demand that they get booked 6 months before the wedding date. Therefore, sending a save the date at the right time is really important. It’s best to start spreading the news around six to eight months prior to the ceremony. This gives guests plenty of time to book their travel, save money and ask for days off work.
Sending Them Too Early
On the contrary, if you send them early, people may forget about it. If you send them a year before, then people may lose it and their attention may also shift from it.
Overthinking the Design
Don’t go over the board of its design as a formal invitation will follow after that. Just play around with colours, theme designs or fonts to create something that will get guests excited for the occasion.
Sending Them to People You’re Not Sure About
Once your save-the-dates are sent then there’s no turning back. So only send them to those guests you definitely want to attend. So be careful about the wedding dates.
We hope you will be careful about all the above-mentioned points.
