Quirky Save the Date Ideas
Once there was a time when invites were the only protocol for weddings, but now with people’s lives being chock full of busy days, you have to give your guests as much warning as possible to make sure they book your wedding day into their diaries. That’s where save the dates come in! A simple card with your wedding date on would suffice, but why not take the opportunity to tease your guests with a hint of what to expect on the day.
Photographers will often offer you an engagement shoot with your wedding photography package, giving you a chance to get to know your photographer and get some pretty photos of the two of you. Why not make use of them and turn them into save the date cards? They don’t all have to be hugs and kisses – be yourselves and add your personality to it.
Make it funny
Kids photos are great to include on your wedding day, and it’s often a popular option as table decoration or dotted around your wedding venue, but you could also use them on your save the dates!
A picture of the happy couple really is a brilliant idea – take some silly snapshots in a photo-booth for a simple save the date.
Give those save the dates pride of place on the fridge and turn them into a magnet. Your guests certainly won’t forget about the date any time soon, plus it’s a great chance to personalise the style. You could go with something like the cute couple snapshots above, but we love these comic book magnets. If you’re going for a rustic theme, wooden hearts are the perfect choice to tie them in to your style.
Make your guests work for it with something a little unique. Get them blowing up balloons or solving a mystery code to find out your wedding date.
Save yourself some money and make some quirky DIY save the dates. We really like these green banners and simple playing card designs (just make sure you rope in some bridesmaids to help you get them all done).
Give them something useful and get some comedy drinks mats printed. Make it funny and they’ll be sure to remember your wedding date.
This is a bit of time saver – order a personalised stamp online and you can simply and quickly stamp your life away, or go with one of our most popular ideas on Pinterest and get an engraved pencil.
Perhaps you’re lovers of a certain film, or you met over a coffee whilst waiting for your delayed train? The more personal the better.
