Save the Date

Save the dates are an important part of the oh-so-detailed wedding process. It's a way to share your great news with family and friends and to get your special day on their calendar. Your save the date should be a fun and creative interpretation of you and your significant other. Get the receiver excited about your special day, and give them a taste of what's to come. If you know that your wedding is going to have a certain feel, then express that through your save the date. For example, if you're planning on having a laid back outdoor wedding, then select natural colors or textures. Burlap, string, and wood are great materials that will give a classy yet natural look.

If you're having a destination wedding, choose a fun, graphic map for your save the date. Locate your wedding's location with a heart for an added personal touch.

Want to put your DIY skills to use? Create mini banners with the date of your wedding and include one as part of your save the date. Receivers will be likely to hang this cute little banner somewhere around their house -- which will keep your wedding fresh on their mind. And last but not least is surely the most unique idea yet... have your save the date information printed on a balloon. It may not last much longer than a week, but I guarantee that's long enough to make a great impression!
