Save the Dates

Save the Dates

Many couple chose to send out a Save the Date to their wedding guests once their date is set and their venues confirmed. Here are some pointers and tips when sending out save the dates to your wedding guests.

Timing

Sending out save the dates 6 months to 9 months in advance is recommended. I always say the 8-9 months out for a destination wedding. This will give your guests plenty of time to place this on their calendar and hold your wedding date for the year. This will also give them ample time to request any vacation days that may be needed for your wedding and research travel and flight options to the city you are getting married.

Welcome to the New Engaging Events by Ali Website!

Welcome to the new Engaging Events website! This is the fourth iteration of my company’s website that I have gone thru during my 14 years as a wedding planner and designer in Chicago and all over the globe. Going thru the design process with 10twelve was both fun and terrifying. Fun, because I got to walk down memory lane and look at images from the last couple of years of weddings and events I have planned and designed all over the world. But also a little bit terrifying because I wanted to make sure to curate and pick the best images that you, our beloved clients and potential clients, would love and enjoy and use for inspiration.
