Creative Save the Dates!

Save the Dates are a great way to let friends and family know to save your wedding date!  Some out of town guests need advance notice for travel plans and expenses.  Plus, you don’t want close friends and family planning anything else on your wedding day.

One thing I love about save the dates is that you can be as creative as you want.  They don’t have to be formal like the wedding invitation and I love any save the date that shows a small part of your relationship and/or personalities.  There are so many unique and creative ideas out there that you really can’t go wrong!  I have listed below a few of my favorite ideas I ran across recently.

For a simple save the date as well as a great DIY save the date, try tying a piece of string or rope through the card to form a “knot”.  When they open the card it will ask guests to come see you “tie the knot”…cute right?

Another great idea I love is to get a few pencils and tie them together.  You can order pencils that say, “Pencil it in” with the wedding date.  Adorable!

A great time to get pictures for your save the dates is during your engagement session.  Have the photographer snap a few pictures with the wedding date written on the bottom of your shoes.

I love the idea of drawing pictures with chalk on concrete and using that as a backdrop for the engagement pictures.  You can be as creative as you want with this idea!

For a new twist on the traditional save the date card, you can order a pop up card with your own images.

Games are also a fun way to get your guests involved in the wedding date. You can use origami, crossword puzzles or even these decoder save the dates for the comic book and superhero fans!
