Prince William and Kate Send Out Save-the-Date Faxes?!
For a royal wedding, this method was royally tacky.
Although it got increasingly annoying to keep fielding the question, “So when’s your big day?” (I am in no way, shape or form ready for marriage, which I made abundantly clear), it was fun to walk around and see what all the best wedding vendors around had to offer in terms of wedding planning, decorations, stationery, flowers and the like. Everything was so beautiful and over-the-top, it kind of made me wish I were a bride-to-be. Kind of.
That’s why I’m so shocked to learn that Prince William and Kate Middleton, who will be having the wedding of the year (if not the decade) on April 29, sent out a save-the-date wedding fax.
Yes, a fax.
With all of the money, tradition and expectations riding on this royal engagement, you’d think they’d at least send out a quickly designed save-the-date on quality stationery. I saw tons of acceptable options at The Wedding Party event, and you know any vendor would die with happiness to have the Prince and soon-to-be Princess of Wales as clients.
In fact, I just received a save-the-date in the mail from a friend of mine who will be getting married two months after Will and Kate say, “I do.” Hers is a classy, thoughtfully crafted card featuring a series of pictures of her and her fiancé smiling and laughing together. It’s endearing, and a perfect representation of them as a couple and the wedding they’re planning.
Why didn’t Prince William and Kate do the same?
