1. Highly Visual Save-the-Dates
Like we said before, save-the-dates are your first opportunity to show off who you are as a couple. One simple and effective way to do just that? Including a picture of you and your partner. Lately, more soonly weds are opting for save-the-dates that feature an engagement photo. But that’s not the only route you can take: In recent years, illustrated engagement portraits have also been gaining popularity. Want to make your save-the-dates even more personal? Many couples also include pets in their chosen photos or artwork.
2. QR Codes on Enclosure Cards
The need for quick and easy contact with guests means that wedding websites are more important than ever. “Almost all of our couples include on their details card their URL and RSVP information,” says Zaini Ihim, who oversees marketing and sales at USRAH. But including a printed URL on an enclosure card isn’t the only way to share your website with guests. “We have even had couples incorporate unique QR codes for their wedding RSVPs and registries,” Zaini continues. This trendy new feature means that guests can conveniently access your wedding website or registry with their smartphones.
