When are “Save The Date” requests appropriate? I used to receive them for milestone events, like weddings. I have received them for charity fundraisers. I just received one for a sales “party” from a friend of a friend. It feels like someone is calling dibs for my Sunday afternoon. Is this Save The Date abuse? 0202-17
This is just my opinion but “Save the Date” notices should be reserved for special events that would require people to travel long distances to attend. Perhaps the plethora of Save The Dates for everything from baby showers to BBQs to fundraisers to sales parties is a manifestation of our busy lifestyles where there is competition for guests as well as an attempt to make sure people prioritize the event on their calendars.
