Moving Tips for Newlyweds

After all of the fun of wedding planning, celebrating and honeymooning, many newlyweds face the daunting task of moving in together. This means consolidating all of your stuff, weeding out duplicate items and compromising on a design aesthetic that will suit you both.

To help ease your stress, here’s a few moving tips for newlyweds that we’ve gathered from around the web:

Save the Date!

I love checking out other wedding blogs, so was intrigued when I read Simply Stated: Nearly Wed recently. The blogger’s entry was a debate about save the date cards and whether they were necessary or overdone in weddings today.

According to the Wedding Report, a 2008 industry trend calls for couples to personalize their complete wedding suite, which includes Save the Date Announcements. And, while most are used specifically for destination weddings or weekend weddings, I personally think that they are a beautiful and fun way to introduce your wedding to guests early.

I’ve received several types of save the date cards in the past, from magnets to photo cards, and have always enjoyed getting them. In addition, if you have a lot of out of town guests like I did, or your wedding date is near a major holiday, and you may want to ensure that the majority of your guests will come by sending out one of these cards as a nice courtesy. Here are a few fresh save the date designs from Wedding Paper Divas that I love.
