Why Your Women Need Save-the-Date Cards

Why Your Women Need Save the Date Cards

Do your women know when your next event is?

Are you sure?

I’m a firm believer in the fact that you can’t over-publicize an event.

Women are BUSY!

They need several gentle reminders.

Audible reminders are great, but paper reminders are even better.

When you hand a woman a piece of paper you give her something she can:

  1. Post on her fridge
  2. Pass on to a friend
  3. Share with a neighbor
  4. Stick in her Bible

I’ve been to women’s ministry events at other churches where the team distributed “Save-the-Date” cards showcasing their upcoming events.

Just recently I stumbled across the save-the-date card I received when we took our ladies to another church in our area to hear Shari Braendel speak.

I needed that encouragement and reminder to create save-the-date cards for our Bible study girls.

If you feel like you’re struggling to get publicity out to your ladies, this could be that one thing that makes a difference!

Make sure you include:

  • Quick facts like time, date, location, cost
  • A web address for more detailed information
  • Way to connect or contact your team – church office phone number and/or email address
  • Your women’s ministry logo

If you have lots of extra space or perhaps on the back side, you may want to include your women’s ministry mission statement and your women’s ministry verse and/or theme.

I recommend printing these on a half sheet of paper, possibly on cardstock.

Encourage your women to take an extra save-the-date card to pass along to a friend or neighbor.

And be sure to take the time to make it look pretty! Women want to pass along invitations that look great.

What other tips do you have for using save-the-date cards in women’s ministry?

    In our group the Women of JOY we printed color calendars for our ladies and the church staff. Everyone knows the dates and there is no problems coordinating events, other events can also be penciled in. I love the idea of save the date cards and being able to pass them on!
