Eva and Brian are styled effortlessly. Aren’t they absolutely glowing? Eva’s stunning Vera Wang Bridal gown and cathedral veil from I Do I Do NJ is effortless. We absolutely love this couples attention to detail. We love that little pop of sparkle on the Manolo Blahniks. How stunning. How handsome are the gentleman in their tuxedos by The Black Tux? Wow, we love their floral boots by Thistle Bee Florist! We also love the incredible floral arrangements and installations by Thistle Bee Florist. Absolutely incredible! Her attention to detail is masterful.

Eva’s glow and glam by the talented artists at Airbrushed by Alyssa Renee and Lounge Hair Studio Denville & Hair By Andrea Perry was incredible. Her glow was picture-perfect throughout the 11pm! Wow, ladies bravo! Wow! And the evening, DJ Urb of Posh DJs slayed the dance floor. What an epic party! What a pleasure to be a part of such a stellar team.

As your wedding approaches one of the first tasks you’ll want to tackle is the wedding day registry. You’ll want to think about creating registries with several stores and experiences. It’s important to notify wedding guests of the locations of where the registries are located. I’d recommend creating a list of items that you are in need of and then walking through several stores to see where best suits you and your fiancé. You’ll find items you didn’t think of, you’d like to add to your list and what registries suit you best for your registries. Do you prefer a big box store or something more fresh and modern like travel? Or both? Again, this is something only you and your fiancé can answer and address for yourselves.

While shopping personally for our registries, we found Amazon, Pottery Barn, and William Sonoma fit best for our wedding registry needs as we found we picked a few items here and there.

Tip: An appointment is not required to create a registry at Pottery Barn and William Sonoma. I personally walked through the store, took photos on my iPhone of the items that were not already on our ‘list’ and created our list at the comfort of my home office. I found that the ‘scan’ tool was not up to technology and the first time I made my appointments at the stores. Unfortunately they were short-staffed and unfortunately, the service that they offered of a ‘personal shopper’ was not simply the case as advertised. Amazon wedding registries can be created online.

What items to include on the wedding registry?

While crafting the wedding registry, you’ll want to include appliances such as kitchen and household appliances, tableware, household linens, bath linens, home decor, and travel. You’ll want envision your future home and how you’d like to furnish this together. I’d recommend to possibly create a vision board of your future home and then plan surrounding this vision. Travel items can include honeymoon activities, luggage, accessories, assistance with travel itineraries, and more. A more modern approach to the registry is a cash fund, gift cards to your favorite stores, and donations to your favorite charity are rising in popularity amongst couples. All items that are included on the registry are gifts that are essentially to be enjoyed by the couple.

Travel Registry

The most modern approach to the registry we’ve found is the service, Honeyfund. Offering all-inclusive experiences and add-ons created for you leaving planning off the table and an opportunity for guests to gift direct to your honeymoon. For travel experiences and worldwide tours, check out Viator to book attractions, tickets, VIP experiences and more.

You have photographed your romantic engagement session with New Jersey Wedding Photographer, Michelle Behre and now it’s time to notify your guests of your date. If you have guests coming in from out of town and traveling or if hosting on a holiday weekend, you definitely want to have those guests aware of your wedding date to providing plenty of advance notice about the upcoming nuptials.

New Jersey Wedding Photographer, Michelle Behre provides step-by-step instructions and deadlines on how to plan, create, and approach your wedding Save the Date cards in a few, easy steps.

Schedule the Engagement Photography Session

Schedule your engagement session at your desired session locations with New Jersey Wedding Photographer and communicate your needs for your Save the Dates and the deadlines desired. Remember, it’s going to take some time for your photos to be delivered and for your Save the Dates to be printed. So you want to keep all of these deadlines in mind while you’re planning your session date and when you need to send your cards out to your guests. Upon booking your engagement session with Michelle, notify her and the team of your desired engagement session date so you can get those back in time.

Here are a few tips from Wedding Photographers, Michelle Behre Photography on designing your Wedding Save the Dates:

Choose Favorites

When choosing a few images for your Save the Date, think about an image that truly represents you, your love story and your wedding day. When photographing your engagement session, we incorporate your elevated, sophisticated, classic and timeless wedding vibe into your session so you can introduce that to your guests in your Save the Date. After your romantic and timeless engagement session with NJ Engagement Photographers, Michelle will choose a select series of images and deliver those one week from your engagement session as sneak peeks. Think of your engagement photos and Save the Date as your own personal cover image.

The remainder of your session will be delivered approximately 4-6 weeks during the off-season (winter months of January-March) and 6-8 weeks during the height of the season.

Provide Guests Notice

Once your session date is booked, begin taking a look at Save the Date card designs, layouts and how they meet the vibe of your wedding. In the layout of the card, enter all of your wedding day details and have the card organized and ready to go so then you can drag and drop your photos when they are delivered.

PRO TIP: Remember, you’ll also want to order your POSTAGE as well. So at the time of booking your session, get your postage all set, as well as your list. Create your master guest list that you will be using and stay organized to stay on top of your shipment deadline.

Create that shipment deadline and stick to it. We recommend anywhere from a minimum of 6-8 months for local weddings. For guests traveling for a destination wedding, we recommend 8-12 months to providing guests with ample notification. Remember, your guests are traveling and have other events. So the more time you give them to place your date on their calendars, the better!

Create Your Guest List

To keep it as simple as possible (and accessible as possible). We recommend creating a document of your guest list to stay organized (and up to date with details). Minted and the other wedding Save the Date platforms create an address book ‘address assistant’ spreadsheet for you. (For our wedding, I found the Minted platform the most user-friendly and most cost effective).

We recommend to create your guest list as your photos are in the process of being edited. Once your images are edited, your save the date is chosen and created, then all you have to do is simply upload your guest addresses direct to their site for your cards to be shipped direct to guests. Easy peasy!

Create your Save the Date

We have shared your online gallery. You have chosen your favorite ‘select’ images. You have your guest list final. Now it’s time to move images over to the Minted design platform and get that Save the Date designed, printed, and sent to notify all guests of your date! Yay! Cue the bubbly!

We cannot wait to see our final ‘select’ images printed in your beautiful Save the Date card when we photograph your day of details!

Until then, love and light,

xoxo, Michelle
