To Save The Date Or Not To Save The Date?
That IS the question.
I come from a huge family; so, for my entire life, I’ve been working the wedding scene. The first wedding I ever attended was at my aunt and uncle’s… still cooking inside my Momma’s belly. And since my debut to the outside world, I’ve frequented many, many more wedding day celebrations.
In recent years, however, I’ve noticed that “Save the Dates” cards / magnets / notes / letters / (fill in your choice) have dramatically increased in popularity. Of course, not everyone does it, but it’s definitely a wedding trend on the rise, especially with younger generations. Even with the economic crisis depressing all current events (gag), I still receive Save the Dates more often than not. Because their cost can be minimal, many couples use this as an option to ensure all their favorite people have their calendars marked to PAR-TAY on their behalf.
The Mister and I are among the hoards of couples to jump on this booming bandwagon, and while I love love love the way they turned out, I’m afraid I may have made one, wee little mistake. I designed them myself using Adobe Photoshop and our “Save the Date” Magnets (please see photo above), and while there are no Save the Date “must do” formatting rules, there are several Wording and Etiquette Tips I was able to follow for ideas.
Daring to be different, I created an original design merely using all the tips and examples as “guidelines,” and let my creativity take the driver’s seat. But does anyone else see a problem with the design my parent’s already oh-so-graciously paid for?? Perhaps something that’s missing?? That’s right. I didn’t include our names!
