Wedding Inspiration: Navy & Pink

21 Aug

color-palate-inspiration

This week’s wedding inspiration is navy and pink.  We’ve seen a lot of this color combination trending lately and we love it!  We love the shades of pink from carnation to ballet pink paired with classic navy.  I think it’s perfect for a Spring or Summer wedding.

Engaged? Helpful Tips on Save-the-Date Wording

11 Jan

Engaged?  Congratulations!  One of the next steps is to send friends and family a Save-the-Date Announcement.   Not sure what to include on your Save-the-Date?  Etiquette expert Sue Fox has the following suggestions to help you with wording whether your style is formal or informal.

 

The format and wording to use

Ensure that you include both names, the date and location of the wedding and since this may be a new concept to some of your guests include an explanation that a formal invitation will follow. The card can be worded quite informally:

Save the weekend of June 19, 2009! Jane and John are getting married!

We’re getting married! You’ll be invited to the wedding that is to take place on June 19, 2009. Please save the date! Jane and John

Joanne Green and Allen Thompson  Please Save the Date!  We will be getting married on July 25th 2010 in Boston, Massachusetts. Invitation and details to follow.

 

A more formal approach for a formal wedding might read:

Dear Mr. & Mrs. Myers,

Please save the date of Saturday, June 19, 2009 for the wedding of Joanne Green and Allen Thompson (or full names for a formal card) in Boston, Massachusetts.  Invitations to follow.

Sincerely,

Mr. & Mrs. William Green
