Save the Date or Not? That is the Question! March 31 2014
Save the date… and the time, and the location, etc. etc.
Just last week I was asked to create a Save the Date for wedding shower. Yes, you read correctly, a wedding SHOWER. On this particular Save the Date, my client wanted to include all the information that would normally find itself on the actual invitation for the event. At first I was a bit befuddled as to why she insisted on the redundancy, as she is planning to send out invitations as well. She explained that many of the guests are from out of town, and that sooner would be better for them to get all the details and would make it more likely that they would be able to attend the event, and that it was simply too soon to send out an invitation.
Given her explanation, I found myself at a loss for justifying a typical format for the Save the Date. So as she wished, I created a VERY informative Save the Date!

But this whole thing got me thinking…
What is proper for Save the Dates?
Custom design is wonderful that way!
Have you ever sent out a Save the Date for something other than a wedding? What are some creative ways to ask your guests to save the date?
