To help you out, here’s everything you need to know about making and sending your save the dates!
8 Tips about your Indian Wedding Save The Date that every bride needs to know!
Timing is everything!
When to send the save the dates is like the most important thing EVER! So, make sure to do this at least 3-4 months in advance from the wedding date. Don’t be late! This will give all your family and friends to plan the rest of their social calendar and be there even if its in peak December!
Destination Weddings have Different Rules
If you’re having a destination wedding, you should give guests extra notice by sending your save the dates out 6 months in advance so that they have a fair planning chance!
Pictures ARE perfect!
Pictures from your pre-wedding shoot will include some super romantic moments, you know the couple walking off into the sunset, staring into each other’s eyes, holding hands, interlacing fingers as they walk down a dusty road. Good news! These are extremely easy to turn into a save the date, so why wait?
Say yes to DIY
DIY your Save The Date coz they’re so easy to do, you can totally DIY them too! Plus, you’d rather save money here and spend it on that outfit that you hold so dear!
Ask for addresses alongside
Ask guests to send their address in the save the date, in the same stride. So that you can easily make your invitation address list and no one is missed!
We don’t mean to be negative but there’ll always be someone who won’t attend, so leave a little room for some cold reactions and nos. Just focus on your closest famjam and friends who need to be there and about the absentees don’t care!
Be Prepared (& warn BAE)
Once your save the date is sent you’ll suddenly have a lot of questions to answer – from where it’s being done to who is the main sangeet dancer! Things will start to feel sooo real and open the gates for planning drama. But dont panic, just look towards BAE (and us) for support in the storm!
Hope you’re all ready to send out those Save The Dates!
