DATE - Naturally, this is one of the most important pieces on the save the date!
SOON TO BE BRIDE and GROOM- Your name and your fiance's name. You will want to include both of your last names as well so everyone knows exactly who is getting married and from what side of the family!
LOCATION - You want to include the city and state. In the event of a destination wedding, your guests will want to know if they need to start thinking of travel arrangements!
WEDDING WEBSITE - This is one of other most important pieces to include on your save the date! The website serves as a great communication tool for your guests throughout the rest of your planning days, so please be sure it is visible! They can visit the site periodically to find nearby hotels you may have arranged for room blocks and your wedding registry plus, hear about your personal LOVE story of how you met and how he proposed. You can include some fun survey's like where you should go on your honeymoon or what song should you play for your first dance. With so many free templates available, it only takes a little bit of time to create a website that is reflective of you two as a couple. One of my favorites is www.mywedding.com, click Free Websites to get started!
LAST BUT NOT LEAST - the famous line, Formal Invitation to Follow!
Best Wishes Always!
