Save-the-date: the pros!

In Belgium we're not used to send save-the-date cards. When we are engaged, we tell our parents "live" about the great news and our best friends hear about it on a night out. Most couples don't want to invest in sending  a save-the-date-card and save their budget for the invitations. So I think it's time to give some reasons why you, Belgian bride or groom, should choose for a save-the-date!

Read more below

1. Probably your family and friends will ask "When are you getting married again?" a thousand times in the months after the engagement, like it's no big deal. Don't think they write it down in their agenda. With a beautiful designed save-the-date you can give them something to stick on the fridge.

2. A save-the-date works as a trigger for your invitation (which is a trigger for your wedding day). Your guests catch a glimpse of the total atmosphere and style of your wedding. From the moment they receive the save-the-date card, they will be curious about the venue, the dress, the food, etc. And as a bride, it's so much fun to know everything and to share nothing!

3. Do you want a low budget save-the-date? Why not sending it by email or creating a private event on facebook? It's also the ideal way to collect all the addresses from your guests. My clients Veerle & Stijn decided to do it that way.

Well, I hope I convinced the Belgians, but what about save-the-date cards in your country? Please let me know!

My first paper sweet booth!

Last weekend I was a proud vendor of Engaged, a unique wedding event in Delft (nearby Rotterdam in the Netherlands). I was so lucky to meet all those wonderful vendors and talk to so many lovely brides and grooms, bloggers or people just looking for some inspiration. The event felt like one big live Pinterest board, so you can imagine how great the atmosphere was.

Some of my favorite vendors you really have to check out - they were all great, but if I have to choose a few: In beeld met Floor (wedding photography), Renske Anna (handmade chalkboard signs and stamps), Oogst (jewelry), Hééérlijk (catering) and Much Love (wedding design).
