Save the Date Ideas

Brittani Waldman is a wedding and event planner with us here at Dream A Little Dream Events, and is now going to be contributing to our blog! Brittani is a great planner with a lot of energy and humor that really makes her clients feel at ease. Here is her first post on some great Save the Date ideas:

It is that time of year where our upcoming summer and fall couples are coming up with ideas for their save the dates. The standard magnet is always a fine choice, but I have a few other ideas to make your save the dates a little more personal.

Photo booths are always a blast and an easy way to personalize the card. You can go to one at your local mall or if you are lucky enough to live in the San Francisco Bay Area, Hello! Lucky now houses their own in-house photo booth.
You can do it with signs like “We are getting married!” “San Francisco” “July 3, 2010”, or without signs and have the team at Hello! Lucky take care of the rest or the verbiage.

A lot of our clients are from out of town and having destination weddings in San Francisco or in the Wine Country. Create your own post card with some of your favorite city sites to get your guests excited about the trip, or grab some tourist post cards, get a custom stamp made with all the details (you can do this at Paper Source), and send them off!

I also love the idea of incorporating a sticker that can be removed from the card and placed in a date book or on the family calendar. It makes it simple for your guests to make sure they have the date off their calendar immediately and won’t miss your big day! Check out the how to on this unique option on Martha Stewart.

No matter how you create your save the date’s, make sure the date is pronounced on the card the most so it will be sure to stay in your guest’s minds!
