Best save the date
A few days ago, the South African wedding blog, South Bond Bride, made a beautiful feature on our wedding day, so I thought it was about time for me to share with you everything that leaded to my most favorite day ever…
You might have read how I asked my bridesmaids here and a little life story post  I made here but here a bit more: our save the date!
Normally in a save the date all you need to say is “Save the date for our wedding on….” but we wanted to say a little bit more than that; we wanted to share once again, the story of how we met and get everyone excited to come to our wedding: specially my family and friends in Argentina. I wonder if we had just sent out a simple email saying “we are getting married, save the date for our wedding 16 March 2013” it would have had the same impact. I like to think that not, and that thanks to the effort we put into creating the save the date, many of my friends thought about coming a lot more seriously, hehe.
We sent out an email to all our friends and family that linked to a video we made together with my husband -(I’m very lucky as Arri does 3D animation and knows a lot about shooting and editing). Besides the little introductory video, we included some information and details for accommodation for the wedding weekend and of course an online RSVP system. For the family and friends overseas, we also included a pdf presentation with more details on Cape Town in general so they could start planning, what we like calling, a holiday-wedding combo! I hope you like…
