Saving The Date

Save the Date cards emerged as a novel idea for alerting guests, coming in from far wide, of your wedding date. Guests had plenty of lead time to secure travel and lodging and you, the bride, saw a far better turn out.
The Save the Date card was a simple, casual note that gave the date and general geographic location of the wedding. No fuss. Postcards have been popular and then came the Save The Date magnet. This little magnet turned out to be the most poplular invention since fire in the world of brides and everyone had to have them.
Well as you know once things are popular, I am pretty much over them, so I have set out to locate the latest and greatest in Save the Date cards.
Every year I attend the National Stationery Show in New York, a fabulous show for the trade showcasing the best and newest in the world of paper and paper related items. It is truly overload, but so worth every exhausting step.
I do want to say that Erica over at Paper Bride has a wonderful booth, that was bubbling with activity. As I popped in to say Hi and take a look at her Paper Bride and Paper Mama offerings, we chatted on her own upcoming wedding planning. You can take a read on how things are going with her over at the New York Observer wedding blog.

So sit back and take note on the newest world that is Save the Date Cards, they are not your mother's magnets anymore.
