3 Steps To Prepare for the Best Save-the-Dates

  1. Schedule Engagement Photos!

Engagement Photos are meant to be a treasured memory of your engagement and a promise of a new and beautiful future together as a couple!

Be creative and more importantly, be authentic!  Your engagement photos set the tone for who you are as a couple! Whether it be a fun and personalized engagement session at the Orioles Baseball Stadium in Baltimore, as I did with Alicia Wiley Photography, or a dreamy and sultry session in Washington, DC amid the backdrop of the national monuments, with Novaes Photography.  

The best advice I can give you is to be yourself! You aren’t taking your graduation photos nor your 8th grade yearbook photos.  These photos represent you two! So go ahead and do them your way!

2.  Collect your Guests’ Addresses!

This is not as much fun as step #1, however, Minted’s NEW Address Collection Tool takes the hassle out of this once, not so fun task!  It is an easy way to gather addresses for your Save-The-Dates, Invitations and Thank You Cards!!! Someone hit that Staples ‘EASY’ Button!

But wait, there’s more, Minted now offers FREEEEEEE Guest Address Printing that includes FREE custom envelopes and style fonts matched to your card.

3.  Create your own Wedding Website!

Your Wedding Website is the ultimate hub of information for your wedding guests.  Don’t plan a wedding without one! Your wedding website is a great way to get your guests to know more about the both of you, as well as sharing some never-seen-before photos of your past adventures.  And its a great reference for your guests as to what to wear, when to arrive and the best way to arrive! It’s a great way to minimize guests from asking you the same questions over and over.

Most importantly, SHARE your wedding website on your Save-The-Dates!
