It’s your special day; it’s only natural that you want to be surrounded by your nearest and dearest. That’s why save the date cards are so very important. Unfortunately cards get forgotten. Put on a table, under bills and other letters, never to be seen again. You want your invitation to be exciting, not just for you but your guests also. You definitely don’t want them to put it down; you want it up on display. Therefore, the simple card is no longer an option. The following article lists some great creative ideas to not only insure your guests remember the date but get excited too.
You can do this on a budget so don’t dismiss it! You’ll be buying in bulk so something like Vistaprint magnets will most likely end up costing the same as cards. Sending your guests a magnet will insure that they don’t just put your letter to the side; it will be straight on the fridge. You open your fridge multiple times a day, that’s multiple times they will be reminded of your upcoming nuptials.
This is great idea if you are planning on getting creative and using your own two hands. A tiny box with figurines that represent you and your partner will still fit in a normal size envelope and make an impact on your guests. The box should include something that represents the theme of the celebration, something represents the couple and of course the date of the very important day. The box and figurines will be displayed rather than piled up with other cards and letters. It’s a great way to get creative and add a unique touch. Use a little humour, for example use Lego people for the couple. Have fun! It’s meant to represent a coming celebration.
You’ll most likely remember making these from school, its super simple. You can include this with a card or use it as your primary information provider for guests. This will insure that they don’t just glance over a card once and put it down. They’ll play with it and create a lasting memory.
Let all of your guests have a little fun with a scratch it. Turn your invitation into a game. You and your partner are a winning competition after all. They can either scratch to reveal your names or to reveal the date and the venue. The suspense may be too much for some of your guests to handle. Once again this idea is about creating tangible memories; your guests will actually have to spend a little time finding out the details. They worked hard to find out the information and therefore will insure they don’t forget it. Most importantly it’s a little bit of fun.
