Engagement Announcements or Save the Date Cards

Sometimes, an engagement party doesn't work with the happy couple's schedule or they have a special people they'd like share their happy news with who weren't invited to the party. In this case, sending out printed engagement announcements or save the date cards is the best option.

Engagement announcements are a more traditional way to announcement your upcoming nuptials. They're usually worded like a formal wedding invitation, with the bride's parents getting the honor of announcing the big news to the world. If you'd like to announce your engagement in the local newspaper, the same wording can be used for this as well.

If you're having a more casual celebration or your engagement is a little on the short side, a save the date card might be a better choice. The Printable Wedding offers a wide range of save the date templates, many of which come with matching designs for your wedding invitations, RSVP cards, and other wedding stationery needs. This lets you effortlessly create a cohesive look for your big day.
