You’ve finally set the date for your wedding and want to tell the world… but what to say? How to say it? Our best advice is to stay true to yourselves, as individuals and as a couple. A save the date should simply share your excitement about the upcoming day, and convey your sincere desire to see the recipient at your wedding. If you do that, you can’t go wrong!
The design and wording of save the date cards vary greatly, from formal to informal, simple one-sided cards to multiple folds, magnets and postcards. To find a save the date design that fits your personalities, we suggest you simply start looking at ideas. You’ll know the perfect card when you see it. Then you can play with save the date wording.
Happy November! Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend and are enjoying the holiday tunes! His+Hers=Ours is back to share a few engagement photo ideas with you. Scott and I are less than a year out and earlier this month we met with our photographers from Mi Amore Imagery (one of the photographers also doubles as my awesome sister-in-law and one of my bridesmaids – she’s the best!). To get these engagement photo ideas, we walked around downtown and in a couple parks. We had a great time! Here is a sneak peek of a few. We have to keep some secret for our save the date cards and Christmas cards.
After coming home from our engagement/skiing trip we went to my mom’s house to pick up our puppy, Lola. To our surprise, my family and friends were there to greet us with an engagement party. Such a fun way to come home! They had the room decorated with balloons, flowers and signs to welcome us – it was great! For one of the gifts, my friend had bought me this huge binder with everything you could ever possibly need to know about wedding planning – I was slightly (ha understatement) overwhelmed when paging through it. Am I going to need this? How am I going to pull this off?!
We got back home late Sunday evening, exhausted, but I squeezed what energy I did have left to play with our save the dates! I know, we don’t have a date, church, photos or reception site picked out, but those things will come in time. All I wanted to do was play with our names and colors; S+D, Scott & Dani, Scott + Dani, save the date magnets or save the date cards? Ohhh, I’m going to love this!
Real cards created by real people like you!
Andrea and Justin’s wonderful Save the Date cards started with the photo shoot. They had a good friend shoot their engagement photos, and they turned out fabulous! Though they hadn’t thought about a save the date card at that point, the photographer suggested using the framed chalkboard as a prop to incorporate their engagement and wedding dates into the photos–one of the all-time-great save the date ideas! (See our blog post on engagement photos for more ideas.)
