Engagement announcement, yes or no?
The decision to announce your engagement is a matter of personal preference. Some couples do it and others find it unnecessary. Often couples just post their engagement on Facebook. Also ok! If you want to announce in digital style though, then we recommend sending a charming engagement card via online post by Eventkingdom. If we are talking about celebrating your engagement, then that is a whole different question. An engagement is of course a great reason to celebrate! Best browse our design collection for engagement invitation cards. Let us know if you found a card you like. You can use it to send online invitations or order paper cards!
Wedding save the date (4-6 months)
We recommend sending a save the date card for your wedding to make sure that your friends
and family have time for your special day. Most customers choose to send their save the date card roughly 4 to 6 months before the wedding date. We do though also experience couples, who send their cards over a year in advance.
Very important is to find a card design you love. Often couples want their invitation cards and thank you cards to match their save the date design. This if of course possible at EventKingdom, independently of your decision to use online or paper or both. If you like the the card design with the water colored roses you can start browsing here.
A function that is often used when save the dates are sent, is to collect addresses. This is helpful if you wish to invite to your wedding with classic paper cards. Please browse our paper card collection for wedding invitations to find inspiration. Couples often make use of our reply page functionality when sending their save the date card, e.g. adding travel and hotel information or contact details of the best men and brides maids.
TIP: Many customers ask us if they can integrate reply options, like “attend” and “decline” into their save the date online sending. This is technically possible, but not recommended by us. The term “save the date” speaks for itself. RSVPs (replies) are best communicated through the wedding invitation.
Wedding invitation (1 to 3 months in advance)
It is important to understand how many guests will be attending asap. We therefore recommend sending the wedding invitation at least three months in advance.
Very important is to find a design you love! A favorite flower or elements of the wedding location can be integrated into the design. Photos or an emblem can also add a personal touch. You have three options:
1. You can browse our talented designers and illustrators from all over the world.

Wedding invitation online with multiple invitations
Weddings often have multiple invitations, e.g. Rehearsal dinner on Friday, Church ceremony and Wedding Soirée on Satuday and a Brunch invitation on Sunday. EventKingdom allows you to send one invitation and simultaneously ask for replies to all the invitations listed above – just like when you print multiple wedding invitation cards with a reply card and send an envelope. To see a real example please click on the image to the right or here. In case you additionally have different guest lists for each invitation, this is also possible. You can use the EventKIngdom guest management to select recipients for all or only certain invitations. A recipient either sees all invitation cards and can reply to all invitations or he sees only the invitations he is invited to.
Reminder and guest management
Thanks to the EventKingdom recipient list you can monitor your sending and manage your guest list including RSVPs for free. Reminders and messages can be sent for free at any time.
TIPP: We recommend to send a reminder roughly 2 weeks before the RSVP date, in case you set such a date. Otherwise a reminder depends heavily on the event. We do not recommend to bombard your recipients with reminders. An good old telephone call or text is sometimes the better option.

Love is in the air
Opinions about February 14th diverge strongly. Some people claim that this “oh-so special day for lovers” was created by the confectionery and flower industry. Others are truly convinced that it has its origin in the decapitation of two christian martyrs named Valentinus.
Whatever the case, nowadays it’s mostly known as an occasion for people to reveal their love to others – which is always a great idea! So why not show your love on Valentine’s Day this year? Whether you decide to buy chocolate or flowers, the oldest and best way to reveal your true feelings remains through sincere and lovely words. For decades, romantic poets have used the efficacy of words to express their emotions in a romantic fashion and to finally reveal their affection to adored women. This is something you can do as well!
Of course not everyone is fit to receive a nomination as second Shakespeare. Moreover it is certainly not an easy task to put feelings into words. Just keep in mind that it is not about perfection but rather about the originality and verity of your words! That´s why several bumpy but self-written lines have worked miracles. So prepare a pen and paper (or switch on your computer), let your creativity float and use the magic of words this year to reveal your love on a beautiful Valentine´s card!
Just like Daddy!
Who does not know that? Right after the baby has come into the world the affectionate speculations about similarities between the newborn child and the parents start. Dad´s noise is clearly recognizable, or not? And these big blue eyes are definitely from the new mum, or not? Well, by visiting the newborn child or by looking at the received birth announcement card one statement is pretty common: Just like Daddy! But is that right? Do strong similarities between a newborn child and its daddy exist? Is that a tactic from Mother Nature to deepen the relationship between father and the baby right after the birth? It would be a logically comprehensible approach. The mother can be sure about her baby, because she gives birth to it, but concerning the father doubts can remain. Strong similarities between the father and the newborn child could reduce present doubts. Interestingly, the approach could not be proven empirically. A variety of studies from Britain and North America have analyzed that matter and came two very surprising results. First of all, a strong similarity between the newborn child and the mother could be proven scientifically, but a strong similarity between the baby and the father was not found. In addition to that, the studies came to the result, that the new mothers see a strong similarity between their children and her father. What was Mother Nature thinking when she invented that?
