Friday’s Fab Finds: Unique Save the Dates

Although our save the dates turned out fine, I really wish I had put more time into them. We made them online, used our engagement photos and printed them on post cards. All in all, they were cute and served the purpose. However, now, when I see people using corkscrews, balloons and playing cards as their save the dates, I kick myself for not being more creative in the assembly of ours.

Instead of weeping about something I can’t change, I’m going to feature some fabulously unique save the date ideas for brides out there who are trying to find a creative way to tell their guests to hold their special day. I’m in serious save the date envy right now with some of these amazing ideas!

I literally gasped when I saw this. This is perfect for beach or coastal weddings! Guests will be more likely to remember the date if you send them something they can’t throw away! Also, would you forget an “invitation” this unique?

  1. The message in a bottle is amazing! I also love the floppy disk idea.. haven’t seen an actual one of those in ages!

  2. These are all stunning! I love that when I began planning my mom thought registering was tacky and that STDs were silly 🙂 I schooled her!

  3. Such cute and fun ideas! I received an invitation just like the last one and was so thrilled to receive something fun.

  4. So cute! People are so freakishly creative. Don’t feel bad, I emailed mine!
