Save-the-Date cards are an excellent way to let guests know about your upcoming wedding especially if it is held during vacation season or a major holiday weekend. They can also be a fun way to notify guests without the usual formal style of invitation. Save-the-Dates are something you can have more fun with! If you want to get a little more creative with your save-the-date cards but are struggling for ideas, here are some to get you started.
Pets: If you have a pet--or more than one! Consider incorporating them into your save-the-date cards. It could be fun to include fido in your invitation, and everyone loves pictures of our favorite four-legged family members, right?
Hobbies: Consider including a favorite hobby or something you both enjoy doing together in your save-the-date cards. Are you both coffee lovers? Use coffee cups, such as in the picture above. Music lovers? A picture of two of you each holding an old record personalized with your event's details would be adorable.
Seasons: If you're throwing a holiday-themed or seasonal event, or even if the pictures you are using for your save-the-date cards were taken at a specific time of year, consider incorporating that theme. Are you having a fall wedding, or were your pictures taken on a beautiful October weekend? Perhaps consider incorporating pumpkins. A holiday wedding? Snow, snowmen, Candy canes, elf hats, and holiday greenery would all be appropriate.
Designs: Are you obsessed with fun designs or prints such as polka dots, chevron, or fretwork? Consider including your favorite design into your save-the-dates. That would be a great way to personalize them!
Games: If you love board games, consider using one of those in the design for your save-the-dates. The details spelled out using the tiles for Scrabble, for instance, would be a fun idea!
