happy new year everyone!! hope you all had a fabulous holiday season and nye!! i was inspired by kerisa’s post last week, and decided to glam it up with fun gilded sequin top and icy nail polish!!
now that we are officially in the beginning of 2012, many of our brides are beginning to think about sending save the dates for their summer weddings. now it’s by no means a necessity, but it’s a super fun way to give guests advance notice of your wedding plans. if many of your guests will be traveling, it’s definitely important to send out save the dates.
depending on how far in advance you are planning, our advice is to send out your save the dates 4-6 months before your wedding. if you are planning a destination wedding, send them out 6-8 months in advance so your peeps will be able to make time-off and travel arrangements.
as for details to include, keep it simple…names, date, wedding city & state. it’s also great to include a link to your wedding website for guests to see more info for the wedding as it becomes available. for many of our couples, it’s also a way to give a preview of the wedding inspiration…as seen here in g+h’s loteria dave the dates!!
watch for more details to come on my favorite places to shop for save the dates!!
