A wedding stationery set will not be complete without Save the Date cards. These cards are important since they serve as the first line of communication sent by an engaged couple to inform their friends and families about their upcoming wedding. They are usually sent ahead of the official wedding invitation card to inform and give guests time to decide and plan for their attendance to the wedding.
That said, Save the Date cards do not have to conform to your wedding’s theme or motif. After all, these cards are typically sent months before the actual wedding and not all aspects of the wedding (including wedding stationery design) may have been decided upon yet. Also, you do not have to send Save the Date cards if you do not want to. But if you do want to make sure that your invitees will be able to attend the event, sending a save the date card may be the way to go.
