More and more couples are sending out wedding postcards to invited guests of the event to remind them to save the date. Wedding postcards come in a variety of styles and designs and they are a great way to let your guests know when this important event is going to be ahead of time so they can make the proper plans.
When you send your wedding postcards out before the big day, you can think of them as an informal invitation or announcement. Wedding invitations are typically very formal with proper wording and designs. But with simple postcards, you can be as creative and informal as you would like. Your wedding postcards could also be simply an invitation to the bridal shower, bachelor party, bachelorette party or any other informal gathering prior to the wedding.
Wedding postcards do not always have to come before the wedding, though. Many newlyweds send out wedding postcards to people who were not at the wedding. If the happy couple eloped or had a small wedding, they can send out wedding postcards to let their friends and family know that they have just been married.
If you decide to send wedding postcards to your friends and family for any reason, be sure to hire a professional printing service to design and create them. Even if you are going with a humorous postcard, putting some extra time and money into them will show that you care about the people who are receiving them and it will help them share this great day with you and your new spouse.
