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:
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.
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 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.
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.
