First impressions are important and one of the highlights of planning an event is deciding how to inform your friends and family. You can think outside the box, channel your creative side and make it fun. Depending on the type of gathering you're having and the length of your guest list, you can tailor your invite accordingly. Here are eight save-the-date suggestions that'll set the tone you desire. 1.You've Got Mail
Evites are ideal for birthday parties and group outings because it's easy to manage RSVPs and make updates. By giving guests the opportunity to open a virtual card (via Paperlesspost.com or Evite.com) they can enjoy the customized background and the photos you've added. 2. Get Carried Away
For destination gatherings, consider using a postcard in the theme of your locale to get your guests amped to travel. Write the details where the addresses typically go and tuck it all into an envelope. 3. Get In the Kitchen
