‘Tis the season that the majority of wedding planning begins. With the holidays yielding the highest percentage of new engagements, it stands to reason that these brides are off and going to plan the wedding of their dreams.
One of the first decisions to be made is the date of the wedding. Once that is determined, then wedding planning can move full steam ahead.
One of the trends that is holding strong is to send Save-the-Date notifications to the guests, so that they reserve the date well in advance and make travel plans to attend. I like this trend, but what I like even more, is the creativity that some brides and grooms use when creating their Save-the-Dates.
This Save-the-Date bookmark is a thoughtful gesture, because it is somethin guests will use. The folks at Yum Sugar have these and other fun things.
These Save-the-Date cuties are definitely a DIY project. How fun and creative! I found them over at Making the Moment Photography.
Most of the weddings that we have booked for 2011 have a vintage theme. I can’t think of anything more fitting than these embroidered, vintage handkerchiefs to use as save-the-dates. They fit nicely in an envelope. Thanks to Lucky Luxe Couture Correspondence for this idea.
You can purchase the handkerchiefs in bulk on e-Bay, but you had better hurry, because they are a very, very hot item. You can also check with your grandmothers. They may have a few hidden away.
Whatever you decide to do for your Save-the Date, make sure it is personal and reflects the theme of your wedding. These and your invitations will give your guests a heads up as to how casual or formal your wedding is going to be.
