3 Easy Ways to Choose Your Save the Date

save the date calendar style

by paper street press

Are you engaged and ready to share the news, but you’re not sure how to choose your save the date? We’re here to help! While save the dates are not required, we definitely recommend sending them. A save the date — sent four to six months before your wedding — does the following: it serves as an official announcement, shares your excitement, and gives your guests advance notice to make travel arrangements, if necessary. It also lets guests know they’re on the list so they can save the date on their calendar. (Note: If your wedding is out-of-state or on a holiday weekend, a save the date is a must.) Today we’re showing you just how easy it is to pick save the date cards with some new designs by Paper Street Press. We’re also offering a giveaway with Paper Street Press that will make sending your save the date cards, invitations, and more SO MUCH EASIER. See? Mondays aren’t so bad. :) Read on to find out more!
