Are you planning on sending Save the Dates before your wedding invitations? Many couples choose to send them out so that their guests can plan on being available that day! Others (and I'm guilty of this) decide that Save the Dates are just another expense that isn't needed and they decide to skip them altogether. Either route is acceptable, but in case you are planning on sending them, we wanted to share some neat ideas and inspiration with you!
There are different categories to Save the Dates, ranging to funny to romantic, to simple! We'll cover those three main topics and give you some fun ideas for each.
Funny Save the Dates
A humorous Save the Date can show a lot of personality between the couple. Incorporate your likes and hobbies as a couple. If you both enjoy traveling, you might do something like the image shown above where the couple lays on the ground and positions themselves to look like they are running to catch a plane with their luggage. We've also seen this done with the couple holding balloons and pretend to fly away while in chalk it says, "Hold onto the date!" with the couple's wedding date.
Romantic Save the Dates
If you want to go more sentimental than funny, you might choose to do a romantic Save the Date. Go back to where you had your first date, or where your partner proposed and take your photos there. You can choose to hold signage that has your wedding date on it, or you can always overlay the text after the photo is developed.
Simple Save the Dates
You don't have to do anything extravagant to let your guests know when your wedding will be. You could simply send out a little post card with the date on it to your close friends and family if you wanted to. On the front of the post card, you can have a cute picture that you like of you and your partner, or you can just use an image of a church or wedding rings. The choice is yours!
