After nearly four years of long distance, when Brady popped the question we knew we wanted our Save the Dates to reflect our international history. Our first year of dating I studied abroad in Norway and the following year Brady studied in Spain and Morocco. I graduated from college the following year and a month later flew overseas to volunteer in Africa. Seven months later I was heading over the Atlantic again–this time to study for masters in the UK…did I mention that in between every trip we lived four hours apart? Long story short: long-distance love is hard, but, at least for us, so worth it.
We loved that our Save the Dates told our story and that our wedding guests would better understand just how much tying the knot meant to us.
What were your Save the Dates like? Did sending yours out make the whole engagement thing seem real as it did for us?
