Combining Wedding News With Holiday Cards




With the holidays right around the corner, most people are busy getting their Christmas cards in the mail. However, if you are also planning a wedding or have just been married, you may have wedding news you want to share with some people. In some cases, it is possible to kill two birds with one stone by combining your wedding news and season’s greetings into one card. Learn the best way to do it here.

Combining a save the date with a holiday card can not only be practical but fun. For example, if you are planning to get married in the summer, the winter months are ideal for getting out the advance notice, so why not do it simultaneously you send your holiday cards? One idea is to send a standard greeting card and insert a magnet with your save the date details into the same envelope.

This works very well because if you send Christmas cards to anyone who will not be on the wedding guest list, all you have to do is omit the save the date magnet from their envelope. The magnet is a great idea because it will be different enough from the cardstock not to get overlooked when the card is opened.

If you plan to invite everyone on your holiday card list to your wedding (or do not mind making two separate Christmas cards), it would be super fun to make a customized holiday card that saves the date.

This idea would also work just as well for an engagement announcement. For example, one couple I knew made a pair of snowmen and stretched a banner between them that said, “We’re engaged!”. The picture of the snowmen was printed on their holiday cards with their names and served as an adorable holiday/engagement announcement.

Many families still send out a long letter as part of their holiday mailings, and there is the question of whether or not to include a mention of the engagement in the family news. There are two schools of thought on that question. First, some people feel that it would be rude to announce an engagement in a general letter if not everyone receiving one will also be invited to the wedding.

On the other hand, an engagement is a big news in a family, so it would be rather strange to omit such an important highlight of the year. The best advice is that if the bride or groom’s family decides to include the engagement news, it should be just a couple of lines within a longer letter of general news. Few people will take that as the promise of a forthcoming wedding invitation.

For those who are recently married, the holiday cards can offer the perfect opportunity to announce their marriage to anyone who was not present. A line in the cards sharing the news would be an easy way to spread the word. It would be very nice to include a small photograph of the bride in her gown and pearl necklace standing with her groom in his tux.

If you think people will be interested, it would also be okay to include a line directing people to the photographer’s website to see more wedding pictures. On the other hand, some people might be irritated to see pictures of other people having fun at your wedding when they were not invited, so think carefully about this.

A wedding picture can also be used to make a custom holiday card. It would be lovely to see the beaming bride in her elegant wedding gown and pearl necklace arm in arm with her handsome new husband. Put the wedding date under the image so that it can also serve as an announcement to those who were not at your wedding.

Of course, you will want to include a seasonal message since they will also be serving as your holiday cards. But, for the most part, combining holiday cheer and wedding news into one card works very nicely.
