If I had to pick a favorite when it comes to wedding correspondence, Save the Dates would definitely win over wedding invitations. Why? Because Save the Dates offer the perfect way to let your personalities come through in ways that a more formal invitation can’t. That’s not to say that you can’t do something outside-the-box when it comes to your wedding invitations, but if you’re looking for a good mix (which I definitely was) between formal and fun, than the Save the Dates offer a great opportunity to do that.
Which is why we’re always on the lookout for unique Save the Dates that will set the tone for the rest of your wedding planning. In addition to adorable photo-setups, there are also so many everyday items that you can turn INTO a great Save the Date, such as crossword puzzles, magnets, handkerchiefs, library cards, and more.
We rounded up 18 of our favorite Save the Dates in the gallery above. Several of them are DIY (which we love), and others are readily available at some of our favorite online boutiques (such as Etsy).
