Ever wonder what to do with requests to attend certain events that don’t quite fit into your schedule?
You feel the urge to RSVP, but you’re not 100% sure it’s the right thing to do. You teeter-totter between pressing “Yes,” “No,” or “Maybe.” Well, here’s an idea. Get back to the basics with a brand new keystroke; Control+S&D, to Save the Date.
You aren’t the only one who has a difficult time when deciding to attend or ditch events. Most people
admit they’re likely to attend events that capture their attention with cool engaging materials. Thus, the golden rule of getting someone to save the date is to make sure you have eye-catching correspondences. Give your target audience something to cherish. It’s your BIG moment, yet you want to share it with them. Remind them daily of the date. And nothing screams remember me like uniquely designed save the date wedding magnets.
By now, you’re probably wondering, “What are the save the date ideas?” or “Why can’t I just send a simple flyer? Why does it have to be a magnet?” Logical thinking, which is normal for budgeting purposes. However, many recipients read flyers once then swiftly store them inFile 9; no date saved, nothing accomplished. Magnets, contrary to some people’s beliefs, nearly always find themselves stuck to a high-traffic area such as refrigerators, dishwashers, microwaves, etc…
For this very reason, you have to make every moment count. Be sure to have the who, what, when, where embedded on your magnets. Finish the design with a blissful picture of you and your spouse. By doing so, your target audience will NEVER forget. Plan on mailing or delivering the save the date magnets approximately 2-3 months before the event. This gives everyone time to clear the calendar and permanently mark the date with a Sharpie.
Save the date wedding magnets are a movement by themselves, but when paired with save the date postcards, the duo immediately forms a mental anchoring force. Similar to magnets, postcards should be eye-catching, informative and unforgettably breathtaking. When it comes to wedding postcards, you don’t always have to go big or go home. You want to make a bold, yet humbling announcement. Make your target audience yearn to be a part of your celebration. Help them realize the honor it would be for them to attend your special event.
Typically, I suggest sending your save the date postcards approximately 3-4 months before the ceremony. Statistics show most people love to plan months in advance of attending weddings. Thus, give them a comfortable head start. Be sure to include important details such as venue, location, date, time and a touching, heartfelt message on the postcards. Unlike the magnets, ditch the images of you and your spouse, instead elect for a peaceful, martial backdrop. Family members and friends will go bonkers when receiving your strategic marketing, save the date magnets and postcards. Their hearts will be filled with joy and souls overcome with emotions; which will lead them to the ultimate call-to-action of saving the date.
