There was a point in my life where I thought I might like to be a wedding planner. From coordinating the colors to helping select the right flowers to putting my perfectionism to use on every last detail, I was pretty sure that it was an area in which I could succeed.
Too bad so many bridezillas might get in the way, huh?
But even though my career path never went in that direction, I still love to browse all things wedding-related and see what has changed (or stayed the same) over time and what new favorites I might include if I were planning my own or someone else's wedding today.
And one feature that I would definitely keep on my list would be the Save the Date cards and, even more unique, the Save the Date magnets from Pear Tree Greetings.
I'm pretty sure it's fairly common for brides to want to shout "I'm getting married!" from the rooftops... and Save the Date cards are the perfect way to do that, while also being practical in letting family and friends plan ahead. But when it comes to picking just the right card to send out, it can actually be a bigger decision than it seems.
After all, a Save the Date card is going to be the first indication to your guests as to what your wedding is all about, right? Whether you're planning a destination wedding or incorporating a theme or just want to announce that you're making your love official, Pear Tree Greetings is sure to have a design that fits for you.
Maybe you and your fiancé are a lighthearted, fun couple that wants a fitting way to share your good news?
There is something about those photo booths in the mall and how even though they cost way too much money, the pictures typically turn out fun. With the Photo Booth Strips card, you can capture that same humor and enjoyment by including your favorite photos and sending it out to everyone in your life.
Or maybe you're having a destination wedding on a beautiful beach somewhere?
I love the way the Circles and Starfish card allows you to include three photos as well as select the fonts and from 25 different color choices. What a great way to have personalization while really getting your guests ready for some sun and sand!
I think it's great that so many of Pear Tree Greetings' stylish Save the Date cards are available as magnets as well. How often have you received an announcement or invitation for a future event and had to pin or tape it up somewhere in hopes that it wouldn't get lost?
Instead, choose a classic design like the Triple Photo Effect or the Refined Reflection and know that it will stay up on your guests' refrigerator door to make them smile and think of your upcoming nuptials with each passing glance.
From photo cards to postcards to magnets to die-cut styles, Pear Tree Greetings has the Save the Date options that are chic and attractive that you're sure to love. You can even check out their blog for much more information on wedding planning or Save the Date etiquette to get you on the right path to planning your perfect day.
