Read on to discover eight unique save the date ideas both brides AND grooms can appreciate. Enjoy!

Save the Date #1: The Decoder

This save the date pretty much requires no introduction because the cleverness speaks for itself.

A save the date decoder? Too cool. Guests will love the retro 3D glasses and secret, spy-like message. This clever save the date was spotted + photographed via Kellan Studios and handmade by one of their couples, Ming and Dan. Nicely done, you two!

Save the Date #2: The Hot Sauce

This is a new one: tell guests to save the date with hot sauce, barbecue sauce, marinade or a dip! Guests love yummy flavored goodies and this favor won’t go to waste. This hot sauce save the date is packaged up + ready to go by Da Sweetz Potz. The Save the Date has never been spicier!

Save the Date #3: The Fingerprint

Nothing puts a personal touch on a Save the Date quite like a fingerprint. We spotted this adorable fingerprint save the date card via Drippy Ink.

Save the Date #4: The Proposal Story

The story of your proposal is worth sharing, so we love when Save the Dates incorporate the proposal into the announcement. Take a cue from two of our favorites beginning with this card by Savor The Date:

We are loving this newspaper save the date idea by KoTwo which gives guests the ‘Top Story’ to describe the events as they unfolded:

Save the Date #5: The Comic Book

To make a memorable first impression, consider a comic book style save the date by Team Welser. The hilarious covers feature titles such as, “Tales of Matrimony: Plunge into the Unknown” with your own custom comic book styled lookalike. We love.

Save the Date #6: The Lego

When real bride + groom Linda and Roland planned their wedding, they hoped to craft a save the date their guests would remember. However, we think they sailed right on past memorable and into the open waters of “never forget”. No one will forget these cleverly crafted lego save the date magnets, equipped with the bride’s bouquet of flowers and the groom dressed in a tux. Great job, you two!

Save the Date #7: The Banner

Give guests the fun of a banner with the sentiment of a photo display, courtesy of the folks at Anthologie Press:

Save the Date #8: The Pencil

People may ‘sync’ more than they ‘pencil it in’ anymore, but your guests will still love to kick it old school with this sharp save the date pencil idea by Melangerie.

Happy Planning!
