Destination Wedding Save the Date

So much fun! A map save the date is perfect for destination weddings. Recently I created this custom illustrated Key West, Florida save the date map for my clients. I just love this design.

Map Save the Dates are a great way to show your guests locations they will need to go to during your wedding weekend. Many of our clients print details on the back of the card outlining the weekend itinerary. This is very helpful for your guests and allows them to plan activities in between your scheduled events if they wish.

7 Easy Steps For Writing Your Wedding Invitation

How to Word your Wedding Invitation in 7 Easy Steps! www.mospensstudio.com

Writing your wedding invitation has never been easier.

Remember to include the following:
1. An opening sentence (are parents hosting?)
2. Bride’s name and Groom’s name
3. An action sentence
4. The wedding date
5. Time
6. Place
7. Reception to follow if at same venue as wedding

______________________________

1.) Opening Sentence. Who is hosting? Be sure to ask your family their opinion also. I will never forget the day a father-in-law-to-be (is that a word) called me on the phone and said, I can’t believe you didn’t ask the bride-to-be to list my name too. He was very very upset she did not include his name on the invite. So my tip would be to ask your parents and your partner’s parents if they want their names listed. OR just go with the “Together with their parents” to cover all bases.

2.) THE WEDDING COUPLE NAMES
You can use your first, middle, and last name. If you are listing your parents names then most times you would not list your last name with your first, and middle name. Never use just your first name. Guests may not know exactly who you are. This happened to my mother-in-law once. She had no idea who the person was inviting her. They only listed their first names.

3.) ACTION SENTENCE

request the pleasure of your company
at the marriage of their children

request the pleasure of your company
at the celebration of their union

request the pleasure of your company
at their marriage

joyfully invite you to share in their happiness
as they unite in marriage

when they exchange vows of commitment
and begin their new life together
