Save-the-Date Ideas

We Asians don't normally send out save-the-dates but they are important if you want to ensure that your intended invitees pencil in the date of your party in their calendars.   

Some choose to send out save-the-dates a year in advance. I sent out our wedding save-the-dates together with our official invitations about 2 -3 months prior to the big day. I'm a sucker for sentiments (and somewhat traditional) so only a physical hard copy would do for me. Technology has since caught up and stop-motion save-the-dates are trending now. Here are some save-the-dates to indulge in:

1) This was ours:
We put a map on the reverse side and contact number of our reception venue lest anyone gets lost
2) Debbie & Kevin's postal magnet which I received via snail mail together with a stack of brochures on what to do in Kota Kinabalu! How thoughtful!
Picture taken from my Instagram. The magnet is now stuck on my fridge
3) Wei Teing & Gan's Rainbow-Inspired Stop-Motion Video:

4)  Melody & Wai Nyan's Bubbly Stop-Motion Video, photographed, produced and directed by Cheem Photography:

Footnote: Kindly take note that you are NOT invited for these weddings. Please do not gatecrash. Gatecrashers will be prosecuted, thrown into the dungeon and never be seen again.
