We’re talking about Save the Dates today, check out this video on my take on them and how to SAVE MONEY …(you need to see this)…
Hi there. Carissa Kruse here. I wanted to talk to you today about save the date. So I get that question a lot on, do I need to send save the dates? What do I send? So my philosophy on saving the dates is it’s definitely not something that you have to do. So if you’re trying to be budget-conscious, it’s definitely not a need. But if it’s something that you’re like, “Hey, I’d really like to send out,” there’s definitely cost-effective ways to do that. The one that I recommend is just a postcard. So you have the design usually on one side and then on the backside, you’ll have maybe a little design too, but then you have the address that’s going to the guest and then the return address.
And then you’ve saved money too because it’s a postcard stamp versus a regular stamp. So there’s definitely different options. You can do just a card with an envelope. You can do a magnet. So there’s a range of costs, but the most cost effective ways to do a postcard.
There’s lots of options, just to kind of give you an idea and some inspiration, and then you have on the back the postcard. So that’s kind of what I would recommend doing. And this one was actually made with a card with an envelope, because it does has no address and return address on the back. But I just thought I would show you guys a few. That one? And this one was made to the postcard too. So a lot of the save the dates that we do are postcards. This one is a magnet just to kind of give you an idea on that. And magnets usually come in different sizes too. So that’s always something to think about. And a lot of times people use a photo from their engagement photos on these. So that’s kind of fun. Yeah?
So you don’t actually have to use a photo either. If you don’t do engagement photos or there’s not a photo that you really like, you don’t have to, or if your engagement sessions pushed out, you definitely don’t have to do a photo either. So, but yeah, so that’s kind of my take save the dates. They’re kind of, they’re definitely an extra thing. They’re not necessary. So if again, it doesn’t fit into the budget, don’t worry about it. You’re going to be posting it on social media anyways. And people know that you’ve got engaged. So it’s just really not as big of a deal as maybe it used to be. And it’s actually honestly something that people didn’t actually used to do years ago. So it’s definitely just an extra thing.
So anyways, if you’ve got any questions on save the dates, feel free to reach out, but I will talk to you guys next time. Bye.
