How to prepare a Save the Date for your wedding
If you’re planning your wedding or you love the weddings universe, you’ve probably once heard the term Save the Date. Anglo influences are growing in the bridal market and this is because everything is marked by US trends. From wedding planner, elopement to destination wedding, mood board, show cooking, candy bar or save the date; it is a reality, we are surrounded by English words.
What is a Save the Date?
In today’s post, I want to explain you what means one of these words that might sound like Chinese to you: Save the Date. If we translate it literally, it would be like “Save the Date”, to take note of the wedding date, that is, how to tell your friends and family you are getting married so that they point on their agenda your wedding date.
And do not mix it up because it has nothing to do with the wedding invitation, on the Save the Date only appear the names of the couple and the date, and in some cases the place of the wedding. The Save the Date is used to say in a more special way you are getting married and it is sent 8 months before the wedding.
However, the wedding invitation contains schedules, location of the ceremony, banquet and sometimes a map and a hotels and hairdressers dossier… which is sent 3 or 4 months before the wedding day.
There are several ways to make a Save the Date and the most used and simplest version is digital; which consists of making a funny video or nice photo, and then sending it by whatsapp your contacts. Moreover, it is a way to advance what the wedding style will be.
The Save the Date of I+R’s bereziwedding
A few months ago, I helped a berezicouple to prepare their Save the Date and this was the result of the session, in a hidden forest in the Cantabrian Mountains, two fiancés evoking tenderness and a camera to capture it all. The search of the location was crucial, since they wanted it was a place surrounded of nature and with an emotional meaning for the bride, as it was a familiar rural state: the forest of Los Pradones del Conde.
We were doing several tests until we found the final picture. Is there a more beautiful love declaration than this one? “I would rather share one lifetime with you than face all the ages of this world alone”
After finishing the Save the Date, being surrounded by an amazing nature and with such a radiant sunset, we made some improvised pictures.
