12 Creative Save-the-Date Ideas

If you’re having a wedding during the high season (June through September), it’s important to send everyone on your guest list a save-the-date card. Not only does it help avoid scheduling conflicts, it’s just a plain old courteous thing to do. Now, you could always send a standard postcard style save-the-date, but where’s the fun in that? Why not get creative? Here are 11 of our favorite save the date ideas to get you inspired:

Due to all the logistics involved in attending a destination wedding, save-the-dates are a must no matter when your wedding date is. Thankfully, destination weddings provide all sorts of opportunities to have fun with your invitation suite. Passports, luggage tags and airline tickets all make great templates to work off of.

Who says save-the-dates have to be printed on paper? We love the idea of printing on different materials, especially when they do double duty like this tea towel save-the-date.

Using a custom rubber stamp allows you to DIY your save-the -dates and you can pretty much stamp on any surface you like.

We think adding a little favor with your save-the-date is a particularly sweet and thoughtful touch, especially if you’re having an intimate wedding and can afford to splurge a little.

Why not make your save-the-dates an interactive experience? Building a teepee and finding a message in a word search are way more fun than simply reading a boring old save-the-date card.
