Early Save-the-Date Cards for Gathering Your Old Friends in Australia

Posted by Giftwaredirect on November 20th, 2017

The purpose of a save-the-date card is to inform your friends of the ‘when’ and ‘where’ of your wedding. It’s always a good idea to send a formal card by mail, as sending a private message online isn’t quite as nice. Some people need to see an official invitation to convince them that they are indeed a part of the entourage or that you want them to witness your special day. Therefore, a save-the-date card is an expected courtesy.

One of the most common mistakes people make during wedding preparation is sending the save-the-date cards too late. If you do this, you might experience disheartening scenarios like last minute cancellations or a half-empty reception hall. The recipient may not be able to attend because they weren’t able to save the date on their calendar and may have already said yes to another event. But this doesn’t mean that you can send the invitation too early, either, because they might forget about the wedding if it’s a very long way from now.

So, when is the right time to send early save the date cards in Australia? Wedding organisers say around eight or six months before the wedding is the perfect spot. This should give your old friends enough time to file a leave of absence from work, save for a wedding gift or a dress or tuxedo, and other such preparations. For destination weddings and holiday-weekend weddings, sending your save the date cards around nine months to a year before the ceremony is necessary so that your guests have time to sort out their travel arrangements.

Some couples send their save-the-date cards via electronic mail for convenience. Some still prefer printed cards, which is more formal, personal, and less-likely to be forgotten or filtered to spam email. If you are just like them, then you should start creating your save-the-date cards now. You can look online for inspirations or for online gift shops that have a wide range of designs and allow revisions until you are satisfied with the card.

Want to be different? Instead of the usual card, why not send wooden save the date plates with magnets? This is a great way to announce your wedding details in style. You can order professionally laser engraved cherry timber plates with information on your upcoming nuptials, complete with magnets on the back so that they can be stuck on the fridge for easy display.
