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!

My nerdy fiancée would LOVE this. Perfect for comic book collectors and artistic types!

and the finale, my favorite way to save the date…

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?
