As the excitement of your recent engagement and selecting your wedding venue begins to set in, you find yourself being asked the ever so popular question:
“Are you going to send out save the dates?!”
We say YES!!
“Save the Dates” not only provide your guests with the opportunity to pre-plan for your special day, but it also creates a sense of excitement within your guests as they begin to count down the months until your big day!
Why do we love the idea of sending out save the dates? Here are just a few reasons!
1.) What better way to inform all of your friends and family of your big day than with an adorable picture of the two of you?! This could be your favorite photograph of the two of you or from your engagement shoot with your photographer! (We definitely suggest setting up an e-shoot with your photographer as this will help build an instant relationship with your vendor professional!)
2.) You no longer have to “wait” to inform your friends and family that you would like for them to be apart of your special day until a couple months before with your formal wedding invitations!
3.) Many couples will not only incorporate their wedding date and a photo into their “save the dates”, but also their wedding location! (West Bridgewater, Massachusetts!) This helps guests to begin their pre-planning with regards to travel arrangements and hotel accommodations if necessary.
4.) Many couples will also include a link to their wedding website for their guests to enjoy all of their up-to-date wedding related information prior to the big day! Wedding websites have become such a popular trend as it allows your guests the opportunity of learning a little bit more about the two of you and of course, your big day! From direct links to hotel accommodations, your ceremony and reception information, wedding party members, to your proposal and love story—save the dates and wedding websites go a long way hand-in-hand!
We are always happy to provide any suggestions to our happy couples at anytime, so please don’t hesitate to ask us! :)
