Today's blog post is for all the future brides and grooms (and also, let's be honest, the people like me who just love weddings)! My plan is for this to be the first in a series of posts highlighting some of the amazing wedding items available on Etsy--first up: save the dates!
Save the dates are increasingly important these days! Many couples are opting for destination weddings, but even hometown weddings are increasingly likely to include guests who live far away and will need to make travel plans, so making sure everyone on your invite list has your date on the calendar well in advance is a must! Not to mention, save the dates are fun way to get creative, set the tone for your wedding, and get your guests excited about celebrating with you!
If you really want to get your guests inspired by the locale and geared up to plan a mini-vacay, why not go ahead and supply a helpful (and cute!) map highlighting all the fun things to do near your venue? Carol of CW Designs (aka The Map Chick) has tons of these in her shop, but of course I especially love this precious map of New Orleans. (P.S. Shooting a New Orleans wedding is on my bucket list!)
So, which one's your favorite? Let me know what you think in the comments! And if you don't want to miss the rest of this series, be sure to sign up below to get on the email list! :)
