One Amazing Outside-of-the-Box Idea for Your Save the Dates that Saves You Money

Save the date cards come in all sorts of designs, shapes, and sizes. In fact, many aren’t even cards.

Some brides send magnets, some send bookmarks, some send a mini calendar of their wedding month, and others send…

Save the date postcards.

This out-of-the-box idea is an up-and-coming trend in the wedding industry and brides are having all sorts of fun, creative, and beautiful save the date postcards designed.

Not only are save the date postcards a unique and creative way to get the word out about your upcoming wedding, but they’re super cost effective as well.
