Your save the dates are an introduction to your special day, so it’s always a good idea to tie it into your overall theme, giving your guests a taste of what’s to come. So if you’re having an outdoor rustic wedding, a cute and quirky save the date is the perfect way to announce to your guests your overall weddings vibe. It’s also a great way to add your personality and style. If you and your other half are both music fanatics, why not send your guest a mix tape save the date?

We love how some brides are using luggage tags to fill their guests in on the destination wedding ahead. Another fantastic way of incorporating this idea is the use of passports as invites.
