This is the very first piece of your wedding that you will be sharing with your guests, so it is important for this to be the right style and most of all personal to the bride and groom. When creating save the dates there are no boundaries, imaginations should be running wild at this stage. You should be thinking what makes you as a couple different and what’s unique about your wedding day? These are the key bits of information that will set a great brief for your wedding stationer when they are putting together design proposals.

It is also important to get the style of the design nailed at this stage as you will want to incorporate this into the invitations, menu’s, place names, table plan and so on. Consistency is key and will flow right the way through ensuring that your style is stamped on everything. This day is a celebration of you both so really go for it!
