Save the Date!

28 Mar

I currently have seven (7) Save the Dates hanging on my bulletin board in my kitchen.  Being in my late 20s, it’s the first big year of weddings for my friends, which I am all too excited for because I LOVE WEDDINGS.

Much thought goes into creating your Save the Date.  It’s the first introduction your guests will have to your wedding, and you’re excited about it! Whether you color coordinate your Save the Date with your wedding invitation, or include an image that references your wedding location, your Save the Date sets the tone for your wedding.

Once you choose your date, location and create your invite list, it’s now time to send your Save the Date.  Your Save the Date should be sent about 8 months in advance, so your guests can mark their calendars with plenty of time.  Save the Dates come in all different shapes and sizes.  Stationary, font, color, images… so many choices!  You want to make sure you’re including the right amount of information- this is not your wedding invitation.  But it is a chance to have fun, be creative, and announce the details of your wedding for the very first time!

Now let’s check out some ideas!


Traditionally, you mail your Save the Date.  But today’s technology allows you to be more creative than ever.  This video Save the Date is adorable- it was made by Drew’s best friend Joe, and his fiance Corrine .  You get a glimpse into their relationship and it definitely sets the tone for their wedding.  I’ve watched it a few times and can imagine how their close friends and family will react to watching it.  I have a feeling that video Save the Dates is a trend in the making, and who would have thought that Joe would be leading that bandwagon!

    Ooh that video of Joe and Corrine gets Sassy so HOT. Speaking of hot, do you know things worked out with the cowboy couple? Ms. cowgirl looks like a future friend of Sassy!! The funny thing is Sassy has actually brought the save the date to a wedding like it was a ticket. Everyone had a good laugh at his expense and to this day they are destined to be lost. That’s where Ms. Fiddlesticks comes in. Don’t tell the cowgirl up there about this arrangement, you know, in case things didn’t work out 😉 Just kidding Ms. Fiddlesticks! Cowgirl, leave your contact information in the comments. Please.

    Until next time everyone, keep it clean and keep it *sassy*
