We're fresh off the prime proposal season (well, actually, still smack in the middle of it with Valentine's Day around the corner), and that means we're SMACK in the middle of major wedding planning for our Fall 2011 clients at Chandelier Events.
That means, we're hot on Save the Dates these days. Ok, if you're getting married, have friends getting married or have planned a wedding over the last few years, you know what Save the Dates are all about. But for those wedding enthusiasts who are newer to the trend--essentially, these mailers can be anything from a postcard, a magnet, a piece of wood -- all with the message to mark out the calendar, book the hotel, and boogie on down to the wedding 8-to-10 months down the road.
With that said, we've rounded up a few of our new favorites!

While you're browsing, be sure to check out your hotel room group reservations. Be mindful of the high traffic seasons at your wedding destination (fall wedding during college football season could put a kibosh on your hotel room rates and availability)! And, of course, include your personal URL on the Save the Date so guests can seek out hotel information and book rooms online. Build your webpage now at TheKnot.com, WeddingChannel.com and Nearlyweds.com, our new favorite site that designed webpage templates that coordinate with some of the most popular invite designs (like this one below) from sites like WeddingPaperDivas.com.
