Rock, Paper Scissor

Save the Date and The Wedding Invitation Suite

You were asked by a special person and you said “Yes!” to that special person.  How do you let your family and close friends know that you said yes and a date has been selected?  Design a save the date and wedding invitation suite to make your official announcement for you.

Now that we are past the days of a carrier pigeon, a message in the bottle or the good old-fashioned phone tree, how do you notify your family and friends about your upcoming wedding weekend?  Side note, please notice I said “wedding weekend” and not “wedding day”. Let’s be real, it is a whole weekend not just a day 🙂

Do you use rock, paper and scissors to notify your family? You might not use it to create your invitations but maybe you use rock, paper, scissors to decide who picks the design, puts the invitation suite together, addresses and sends them out. If that is your method continue reading for a better solution.

Save The Date

Depending on how early you are planning, you are going to send a “Save the Date” card initially. 

Usually, these cards will have an engagement photo of you and your fiancé, the date of the wedding and geographical location.  I bet you are asking yourself what is geographical location.  Geographical location means the city, state and country (if you are going to another country)

The Wedding Invitation Suite

The next item that you would send is the invitation. 

The invitation suite sets the stage for the wedding and speaks to you as a couple.  Your invitation suite should match your style as a couple and your wedding.  If you are having a super formal wedding, people wearing evening gowns & tuxes, sit down to enjoy a seven-course meal, orchestra dinner music, a big band for dancing and use a one panel card with a casual headshot, a casual font and no response card.  Those are 2 very different themes and styles.
