it's beginning to look a lot like people are getting ready for their weddings next summer...

While the end of the year tends to be a quiet time for weddings, it's a great time to get your Save the Dates out for your weddings next summer! Six months prior to your event date is a good rule of thumb to alert guests of your upcoming wedding, and if you're planning a destination event, you might look at sending Save the Dates even sooner, especially if attendees will need to book travel or if your event is over a holiday weekend.

Save the Dates can coordinate with your invitation suite and offer a glimpse into your vision for the wedding, or you can use engagement pictures for something fun and modern. We encourage brides to include a wedding website on the save the dates so you can update information as needed prior to the big day. The website can also serve as a tactful way to communicate registry information to your guests since those registry cards they GIVE you at the retailers are a serious etiquette no-no.
(Bed Bath and Beyond - what are you thinking?)

Looking to save some money on postage? You can print a small save the date and slip it in with your holiday cards! Contact us today to get started!
