Save the Date Ideas

“Save the Date” cards have become wildly popular in the last couple of years, and I’m always running across fun and unique ways to share the exciting date!  Here are a few of my favorites…

From Urban Style blog, a lovely engagement photos post includes (at the VERY end) a really cute idea for “Save the Date” – driftwood with the date painted on!  Shabby chic and perfect!  Create your very own unique and fun “Save the Date” photo, take it to a drugstore (Costco, etc.) and let them turn it into inexpensive postcards or note cards.

From Martha Stewart, a lovely ribbon and cardstock save the date message… I LOVE this one.  And….they actually aren’t hard to make.  A bit time-consuming, but not hard:


From My Yellow Umbrella, a great DIY post about how to make cardboard cut outs… to enhance your photos with a silhouette date!  What a fun and unique idea!

Another unique idea from Martha Stewart.. a compass inspired save-the-date.  The post includes templates and instructions!

I found a GORGEOUS idea on 100layercake.com… a hand embroidered handkerchief!  The credit for these hankies goes to Benign Objects.  Beautiful Victorian wedding inspiration in the post!


And last but not least, a scrabble inspired save-the-date, from cameras and light:

Just look at this wonderfully unique table number idea from the wedding co – paper crafted numbers from pages in a book.  LOVE!!  All you need is a alphabet and number template and some books!  (your local library may have some old ones they can donate to you!)
