While there may be room in the wedding budget to hire a calligrapher to address invitations, it is certainly not a requirement.Many budget-minded couples ask friends or family members with beautiful handwriting to help with the job.With Sunday weddings, unless it’s a holiday weekend, guests won’t be able to let loose as much as they’d like, and many will leave early to get a good night’s sleep before the work week begins again.If you choose Friday, start your ceremony later — perhaps 7 or 8 p.m." by including the city and state on your save-the-date (no need to put the actual venue at this stage).Many of your guests will still have to travel and possibly book overnight accommodations so give them a heads as a courtesy.A save the date is often the first form of communication between the wedding guests and the happy couple.
But there’s a reason Saturday is the most popular day for weddings to take place — with Friday weddings, your guests either need to take the day off work, leave work early, or skip your ceremony altogether and just attend the reception.
Be sure to sit at a table with a magazine as a foundation under the invitation.
Traditional wedding etiquette calls for invitations to include a small RSVP card with a pre-printed and stamped return-address envelope.
Just a few weeks ago, I narrowed down my own save the date options and picked a winner.
The save the dates arrived and I quickly realized that I forgot a very important element, the location of the wedding.
