Creative and Unique Save-the-Date Ideas

Your Save-the-Dates are some of the first “sneak peaks” your wedding guests will receive prior to the big day. Save-the-Dates are also important since they allow your guests to plan far in advance to ensure they can attend the wedding. Typically, Save-the-Dates are sent out at least 6 months prior to the big day but should be sent out earlier for destination weddings.

Since your Save-the-Date cards are a glimpse into the wedding and its theme, think about sending them in a style that reflects what your wedding embodies — whether that be classic and elegant, modern and sleek, or timeless and romantic.

If you don’t know where to start with your Save-the-Dates, check out these examples that will start to get the ideas rolling:

Calligraphy Save-the-Dates

Using gorgeous calligraphy script on your Save-the-Dates is a sure way to promote the elegance of your wedding. Calligraphy is not only beautiful to look at but is also a classic look that doesn’t go out of style. There are many calligraphy card options available online or through a local stationary vendor!

Engagement Photos Save-the-Dates

Social media’s not the only place to use your engagement photos — incorporate them into your Save-the-Dates! Using a photo of you and your groom will tie in a personal aspect to the invitations and will give you an excuse to show off your engagement photos once again.

Watercolor Save-the-Dates

Watercolors are the perfect look for spring and summer weddings this year. Whether you bring in bright pinks and oranges or cooler blues and greens, using a watercolor theme to your Save-the-Dates will bring a soft splash of color that isn’t too jarring.  

Metallic Save-the-Dates

Metallic accents are a big wedding trend when it comes to décor — if you are thinking about tying in metals to your theme, think about utilizing that for the Save-the-Dates. Bringing metallic accents, like gold or silver foil paper, to your Save-the-Dates is a definite way to make a fun statement as opposed to sticking to plain paper cards. 

Simple & Minimal Save-the-Dates

You can never go wrong with clean lines and simple text! If you are not wanting a flashy introduction to the wedding, opt for the minimal look for your Save-the-Dates. Although the word “minimal” doesn’t sound very exciting, you can still make a big impact with a simple and clean look.

Floral Save-the-Dates

Flowers epitomize weddings, so there’s nothing wrong with wanting to incorporate pretty blooms into your Save-the-Dates. Floral décor and greenery is on the top of the trend list for weddings this year, which means there are tons of Save-the-Date cards and templates with that motif. If you’re looking for a romantic feel, this is something to consider!

Savvi Tip: Don’t leave your guests hanging by not providing the proper information and wording on your Save-the-Dates invitations! This includes the couple of honor’s name, wedding location and wedding date. You also might want to note that a formal invitation is to follow.
