Wedding Planning: Wedding Save the Dates
How is everyone doing out there during this quarantine? Hanging in there? Things are definitely pretty crazy, and even though I've been working from home for over a month I still feel like I'm settling into a home routine. So thankful for all of the video apps to keep in touch while quarantined! It's so good to see familiar faces while cooped up at home, even if it's through a screen.
During this time at home, I thought I would make a post about the wedding planning process, starting with one of the first steps after booking your venue and your vendors: the save the dates! Especially since I am going through the wedding planning process myself (even if my planning process may be on hold for now).
Some of my favorite wedding save the dates are from Basic Invite! Save the dates are an awesome way to show off your engagement photos, and give your guests a heads up on the date of your wedding at least four to six months in advance, before you send out the formal invitation. Plan to send them even earlier though for a destination wedding! This ensures all of your friends and family can mark your wedding date on the calendar nice and early before their calendar fills up :). Magnet save the dates are a unique touch that are great since they are already ready to be stuck on the fridge! My other favorite option are the wedding postcard save the dates, they are so cute! And postcard save the dates save you a little bit on postage!
For all of the different kinds of save the dates, one of my favorite things about Basic Invite is that they have almost unlimited colors to choose from when creating your save the dates (or wedding invitations), AND you can instantly preview online to see how it will look. This means super custom invites to perfectly fit your vision! They also have over 40 different colors for envelopes to match your invite! Cause for real, at least for me once you decide on your wedding colors, you want ALL the wedding things to reflect the colors you've picked out for your big day :). You can even have your wedding website match your wedding invitation and save the dates with a free wedding website from Basic Invite! It's super easy to use, and super customizable as well!
Drop a comment if you have any other wedding planning questions you would like for me to write about! Planning a wedding right now while dealing with the coronavirus makes things 10x more complicated than it already is, but I am more than happy to share my thoughts on it from a photographers point of view, as well as a bride to be in a future post! Hope you are all safe and well.
