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:
Fun Shaped Save the Dates
Magnet Save the Dates
Magnets seem to be one of the only save the dates that we hang onto well after the event is over! We love the convenience of these because your guests can always refer back to their refrigerator to find your event information.

Making sure your guests know the date is the whole point, right? There might not be anything more fitting than using a calendar to remind them.

Tell Your Story
We love the idea of including photos that tell a story in your save the date. You can use photos from significant moments in your relationship, photos of you as babies, or a combination of pictures from you both growing up!
