Selecting my save the dates was the first moment that the whole idea of our wedding suddenly felt like a reality, rather than a lovely day dream. It’s a really exciting moment. It’s also the first impression that guests will have of the big day, so I wanted to get it right.
I spent ages scrolling through beautiful designs, and even made a Pinterest board of the most inspiring. Here are some of my favourites from the company that I chose to make mine, Wedding Paper Divas followed by my top tips on selecting yours. I won’t share my final choice just yet as I haven’t sent them to my guests and I don’t want to spoil their surprise. But I will soon, promise.
A few tips for selecting your save the dates:
1. If you have no idea what kind of wedding you want at this stage in the game, and the only information that you have is a date. Perhaps go for one of the photo designs and use a really special pic of you and your partner.
2. Look at the photos on the Wedding Paper Diva blog and social media as well as browsing through the website. They have so many designs you may not find them all on the website. On the Instagram & blog they post pictures submitted by real brides, often presenting the designs in a beautiful lifestyle setting which always helps me to get a better idea of the product.
3. If you see a design that you love which isn’t quite right then use the instant chat service for advice, the in-house design team may be able to tweak a few things to suit your needs.
4. Take a few days to decide on your design, send screen shots to bridesmaids and family for their thoughts before selecting.
I’ll let you know soon which ones I picked soon!
