For couples who are getting married for the first time, one of the challenges they can face is what kind of wedding to have or what look it should have, such as colors and fonts, etc. But if you prepare a save the date card, then this invitation can act as a test run or sneak peek for your official RSVP invitation.
Because this preparation will happen early in your wedding plans, you can play around with designs or experiment with templates so that you can eventually determine and finalize what your overall wedding theme will look like. You can even use this opportunity to use your engagement photos and show them off to all of your guests, including the bridesmaids to make them feel more excited about your wedding day and the wedding event photoshoots.
In addition, if you really are unsure about your creative ability, then you can at least prepare the save the date cards through a DIY method to test if your RSVP invitation should be done by you or a professional. There are many wedding websites out there that have tools to help with DIY wedding projects. Of course, the DIY method can save on your wedding budget as well if that is your goal.
