After you get engaged, your mind goes a million miles per hour thinking about planning your wedding. The first thing to do after the ring is on your finger is to pick a wedding date. Giving your for sure guests, friends and family a heads up of when the big day will be is thoughtful, and even though you don't have to do it, sending a save-the-date is a gesture appreciated by many guests. Save-the-dates also help you make sure that the people you really want to be present will be able to make it.
This is why we love photo save-the-dates. If you're still deciding on a wedding style and color palette, taking a fun photo delivers the message in a fun and whimsical way without having to rush to pick a design. These can also be super cost-effective if you can't justify spending a chunk of your wedding budget in save-the-date card - just print your photos as a postcard!
If you are having engagement photos taken, you can ask your photographer for ideas for a save the date photo opportunity.
