A Save the Date advises your guests to do precisely that… hold the date in their personal schedules! While it does provide important details about the wedding, such as when and where your wedding will be held, the overall goal of this card is to give guests the opportunity to plan around your very special day. This way guests will be able to inform their workplace, schedule a babysitter, or may even have to change their vacation dates around once they hear this news regarding your sealed wedding date.
