Save the dates are one of those wedding essentials that kind of set the tone for your big day. And sending something out that is as memorable to you and your guest, as your wedding will be is definitely something you want from your save the date. So, we’ve gathered some ideas to get you started….
1. Pencil us in
This sweet yet play on words idea will have your guest’s hearts smiling from ear to ear. Not only is it adorable but the pencil is something your guest can keep and use going forward. This ensures they will not forget your big day.
2. Luggage Tags
This idea is great if you’re having a location wedding or even if you and your partner love travelling. Guests get a taste of wanderlust with these cute luggage tags – you can also attach a customised map of accommodation, eating and sightseeing place.
3. Mini Canvas and Easel
If you or your partner are artsy, then this Mini Canvas and Easel save the date is perfect for you. They’re cute enough that guests will probably love to display them keeping your wedding day front of mind.
4. Confetti Explosion
This idea makes the save the date more interactive and fun. Typically it’s best to use a twister confetti explosion with customised confetti based on your colour pattern. This is also a great DIY option if you’re trying to cut costs.
5. Printable Calendar
Simplicity is key with this cut and dry save the date.
This save the date keeps your wedding day you front of mind with all your guests. They can stick it to their refrigerator.
7. Tying the Knot
This is a popular choice amongst brides to be. It’s clever and a play on words and typically works with both nautical and rustic themes. But can be adapted to whatever theme you have.
8. Illustrated Ideas
The illustrated save the date creates a clever way to demonstrate what guests can expect when they attend your wedding. You could illustrate your venue with clever typography – this adds a clever touch to your announcement.
9. Mini trinket box
We all love receiving packages in the mail, so what’s better than getting your guests excited for the wedding by sending a Mini Trinket Box. Fill your box with themed items or things that reflect your wedding or both you and your partner.
