Saving the Date

While more modern wedding enthusiasts may disagree with me, I still love the Save The Date. I love receiving them, its the first hint into your wedding and gives your guests a taste of what's to come! I think that they are especially important if you are having a destination wedding ~ it signals to your guests that they need to start planning in advance, and gives you an opportunity to share your wedding website, where you can include travel, transport and accommodation information.

Where I deviate from the Save the Date tradition is that it doesn't necessarily need to be done in an old fashioned manner, or relate to the rest of the printed goods that you will have created for the wedding {invites, programs, menus etc}. It can fun, whimsical, endearing, cute. Let your creative juices flow ~ a boarding pass for a destination wedding, a postcard from the city that the wedding will be taking place, a photograph of the bride and groom ~ let your imagination run wild!

Just keep in mind that you don't need to put a ton of money or effort into your Save the Date. This should be a low key project out of all your wedding planning!
