Save the Date Ideas That Are Uniquely You!

While not everyone chooses to send out save the dates for their weddings, there are many advantages to using them. They allow your guests a sneak peek at your event, and provide a little reminder to them, ensuring that they don’t schedule another event on YOUR big day! You don’t have to send out the same save-the-date cards that your sister, cousin, best friend, and aunts have used… There are so many out there! We have some really cool unique save the date ideas you can check out below.

There are so many different types of save the dates that you can order or even make yourself. If you are considering sending save the dates for your event, take a look through a couple of our favorites:
