While Save the Dates are traditionally associated with wedding reminders, you can use them for virtually any special occasion, ranging from parties and celebrations to reunions and get-togethers. With a diversity in styles and setups, Save the Dates are perfect for marking your next special event:

Special Birthday Parties
When you are organizing a special birthday party for a loved one, such as a sweet sixteen a 50th birthday, or anything in between, save the dates are a great way to let your guest list to know in advance. Especially for destination parties or secret events, save the dates help to get the word out in an exciting way.

Milestone Anniversaries
If you’re organizing a milestone anniversary, for yourself or a friend, then you may want to consider using save the dates to help mark the occasion. Often times, anniversary parties are a must-attend for out of town friends and family, so providing them with advance notice is particularly important.

Bar and Bat Mitzvahs
Marking the transition into adulthood for young Jewish adults, Bar and Bat Mitzvahs are an event that is commonly shared with family throughout the country. In fact, it’s common for international cousins and friends to travel to make the occasion. Since the date of the even is known in advance, you can certainly provide your guests with 12-month notice to help them make travel plans.

Whether you are preparing for a high school or college graduation, save the dates can provide close family and friends with advance notice about the event. For students who are embarking on a career after graduation, the event is one last time for friends and relatives to share in a joint celebration.
