If your wedding is in the summer or fall, you may not want to be sending out invites quite yet, but a “save the date” postcard is definately a good idea. You can do something inexpensive and fun at www.Vistaprint.com or print them up yourself, but any variety will make it easier for your guests to plan on attending. (And it may help them set up other activities in the area, if you live near a cool destination like NYC….) An unexpected planning bonus is that you may find out, very far ahead of time, who can’t come and who can, so you can tweak your guest list to include those you thought you might not be able to invite.
