Initially, we didn't expect any Americans at our wedding. And since my parents didn't plan on coming at first, I wasn't planning on inviting anyone else from home. The plan was to have a series of receptions when we visited at Christmas.
But since my family is coming, we're not going home for Christmas. And so, all reception plans were canceled, along with marriage announcement/reception invitations. But I still wanted a way to announce our wedding date, without obligating anyone to come, so I sent out a few small cards with a handwritten note:
We're getting married
November 26, 2009
Please save the date
to join us or
toast us from afar.

I like to call them my "Here's the Date"s, since it's really an announcement more than a calendar event. I found the cards at one of my favorite little artisty shops - Peccata Minuta (objects irresistibles) - which is hidden away in a passageway off of Cordoba (954). Oh, and its violet season :) Happy Sunday Morning!
