What is this Save The Date thing that has suddenly become de rigeur? In my mind, just another way to rip off young, insecure couples. However, there are as ever cheap ways of doing it:

1. Use the phone. It’s a nice way to catch up with people. And if you don’t have their number in your mobile, should you really be inviting them?

2. Take inspiration from all over, then design your own. Ooh look at these…

3. Just send out the invites really early.

4. Send a postcard and save on envelopes. Clever.
