Once you’ve checked your memorable engagement off the list of love, it’s time to focus on some creative Save the Dates so that all of your friends and family can mark their calendars and start looking forward to your big adventure! Take a look through these 5 suggestions to make your Save the Dates more fun!
1. Team “We’re Getting Married”
Do you and your sweetheart spend every Sunday cheering on the Broncos? Do your favorite date nights take place at Coors Field, home of the Rockies? Why not let all your friends and family know your team of two is tying the knot with a sports-themed Save the Date! Incorporating unique passions or interests the two of you share is always a great idea. Plus it makes picking out your outfits way easier!
2. Words with Friends
Maybe you consider yourselves wordsmiths? Why not spell out just how the two of you feel about each other with a sweet game of Scrabble! There’s nothing like a little friendly competition, plus your guests will adore the creativity. Don’t limit yourself to just Scrabble, though. Any board game or deck of cards can be used in your photos to create some creative Save the Dates. And of course, photos of the ring on the game board are essential!
3. Show and Tell
Whether you bring matching mugs, your favorite champagne, or a couple good books, props can make truly creative Save the Dates so much more special. Include t-shirts with your wedding hashtag, signs with a mashup of your names, or a banner announcing your upcoming marriage. Play around with different props to find something sweet and sentimental to add to your Save the Dates. Etsy and Pinterest are always great places to start! But quite addicting.
4. The More, The Merrier
Awesome Save the Dates sometimes feature a few extra. If your special day includes anyone in addition to the two of you, why not cast them in your Save the Dates, as well? We especially love cards that include children or furry friends! Sometimes, they even steal the show! Sharing this experience with the whole family can be a super sweet move. Plus you can easily employ your extras to be sign holders if you decide to bring props.
5. Laugh it Up
Remember that Save the Dates are much less formal than other aspects of your wedding, including your actual wedding invitations. Feel free to included candid photos, use crazy wording and font, or try out the runner-up color scheme didn’t make the final cut for the wedding. Whatever route you decide to take, make sure you and your fiancé have a blast. If your creative Save the Dates accurately reflect your special relationship and couple personality, we know they’ll be amazing!
