Wedding Save the Date Ideas

Wedding Sabe The Date The first impression for your wedding guests is your Save the Date announcement.  It will set the tone and give excitement for your upcoming wedding day.  There are many options for how to announce this special occasion.

Here are some tips on selecting your save the date:

1. Think about the tone.  Do you want it to be funny? Or formal?  Do you want it to match your theme and/or colors? Will you include photos of you two? etc.

2. Make sure to keep the info simple.  You don't need to include all of the details (you may not have all this information at this time anyway).  Just make sure to put the date, location (or city if you don't have exact location yet), your names, and website info (if applicaple) where they can find out more details.

3. We recommend to send out your announcements at least 6-8 months before your wedding so your guests can start saving and planning for the big day.

I know we've all heard or seen this message in a bottle save the date, but I just love it!  It can be quite expensive to put together and shipping costs, but well worth that first impression from your guests.  You can be very creative with this announcement by adding whatever you want in the bottle.  Great for any style of wedding.
