Fun Christmas save the date ideas
Christmas is always a lovely time to reach out to friends and family – and if you’re sending Christmas cards, why not combine it with your save the dates? Not only does this save on postage (clever), it’s also a great way to theme a festive or Christmas wedding. If you need inspiration, here are some fun Christmas save the date ideas…
Personalised Christmas save the dates
What better way to personalise your save the dates than with a hand-drawn version of yourselves? We love these incredible hand-drawn designs from Charlie at Hey Draw Me.
All you need to do is send Charlie a photograph of you and your intended, and he’ll turn it into a fun digital cartoon that can make up your save your date! He can even include pets – perfect for a family Christmas card. The best bit is that once your main portrait is done, you can use it throughout your wedding, such as on invitations or orders of service. Hey Draw Me can also draw your wedding guests, which is perfect for illustrated place cards or table plans.
Wreath Save the Dates
For something a little more traditional, we love these wreath save the dates from Wedding Graphics. You can choose between Gold, Rose Gold or Silver foil to best match your wedding theme, and there’s a matching stationery suite for your wedding invitations too.
Once you’ve chosen your Christmas save the date, why not add an extra special touch with custom envelopes? This red and green combo from Pearl Vine is particularly festive, and will look wonderful dropping through your wedding guests’ letterboxes.
Christmas bauble save the date
For something very extra special, these Christmas bauble save the dates from The Honest Paper Company fit the bill. They’re a perfect keepsake for a Christmas wedding – although at £19.50 a pop, you may want to save them for just a few special guests!
Christmas posting dates for 2019
One important thing to bear in mind if you’re sending Christmas save the dates is the posting cut-off. According to the Royal Mail, these are the last posting dates for Christmas 2019. We advise posting your save the dates well before this, of course!
