Start Your Wedding Planning With Inspiring Ways To Save-The-Date: Part 1
The ring is on your finger and the planning is underway — time to get your guests in the loop. Your first step: Send a wedding save-the-date card. This pre-invitation mailing officially announces your wedding date and lets guests know that they will, in fact, be invited to the celebration.
As a general rule, it’s best to start spreading the news at around 6 months prior to the ceremony (8 months for a faraway destination). This gives wedding guests plenty of time to book their travel, save a bit of cash, and ask for days off from work. Any earlier, and they may toss the notice aside. Any later, and it might as well be an invitation.
Save-the-dates have become increasingly innovative and fun over the past few years. From fun photo shoots involving the family pooch to customized calendar stickers, couples are looking beyond traditional stationery when it comes to this stage of wedding planning.
When it comes to selecting your particular save-the-dates (something you should think about early in the planning process after reserving your venue and your photographer) consider incorporating elements of your hobbies, wedding location or a fun part of your love story. If that’s not your thing, try scrolling around sites such as Etsy, which has a slew of customizable options. Most importantly, like any creative endeavour, try to make sure your save-the-dates reflect your personal style.
Here are some inspiring ways to save the date.
