Save the Dates were a part of my to-do list that I wasn't quite sure about. When do you send? How do you design? What information should be included? Wellllll after doing a little research, I discovered a few things you brides-to-be out there might want to know:
- I don't even know where to begin...No big deal! I didn't either. Talk to family and friends who know you and your style well. Weddings are an awesome time to brainstorm. Pinterest has some great starting points.
- When do you send? You can send out your save the dates between 4-6 months before your wedding. If you're having a destination wedding, consider sending 8 months in advance.
- How do you design? I wanted to design my own, so I used Vista Print. They're having a 50% off sale through 12.31.16 if you use the code 'JOY.' It's seriously such a great deal! Wedding Paper Divas has some great options, including foil. If you have photos from an engagement shoot, using a ready-made template from a website is super simple.
- What info should be included? This, like virtually every part of wedding planning, varies. On a typical save the date you can list: your names, your wedding date, the location of your ceremony + reception, and your wedding website. I'll be discussing the pros and cons of wedding websites very soon ;)
Has anyone else designed their own save the dates? Any advice, lovelies? xx
