Wedding Save The Date Ideas

You’re engaged!  Congratulations!  Most of you will begin compiling the guest list and think about whether or not you should send out wedding save the dates.  Save the dates are highly recommended if you are planning a destination wedding or getting married during peak travel times.  Sending out save the dates will give your guests time to make travel arrangements.  We recommend sending out save the dates at least 6 months prior  to your wedding day.

So now that you have decided that you need to send out save the dates, we have prepared some different ways of making this announcement to your friends and family.  Enjoy!

Wish Upon a Wedding Blissful Wishes Ball

Wish Upon a Wedding is a nonprofit organization granting wedding and vow renewals for couples facing serious illness or a life-altering circumstance.   We are strong supporters of what the organization is trying to accomplish.  We attended the Blissful Wishes Ball that took place at the Intercontinental Hotel Century City.   The ballroom was decorated with a modern love theme.
