Five Creative Save-the-Date Ideas

Kick off the wedding planning process right!

Wedding Planning - 5/21/2021

Gaining widespread popularity in recent years, save-the-dates are a great way of announcing a wedding to friends and family. It can also be kept as a memento to be put around a guest's home such as on their office desk or hung on their fridge. But how does a couple choose what kind of save-the-date they should use to represent their love? The Oklahoma Bridal Show offers five creative save-the-date ideas to use for your special day.

Here are five creative save-the-date ideas for any wedding:

1. Flower seed packet: A great way to both share the date of a wedding and the love of the couple is to give guests flower seed packets. This way, guests can grow the flowers as the two grow as a married couple, and every time they look at the flowers, they will be reminded of their love once again.
2. Magnets: Magnets can easily be hung all around a home and are a very useful save-the-date option. Since save-the-dates are typically hung on the fridge as a reminder, a magnet will already do this job without needing anything else to hang it with.
3. Bookmark: If a couple wants to keep the traditional paper format of a save-the-date, they can make bookmarks. This is an affordable yet creative way to display their wedding date. Guests will be able to use a bookmark for everyday life especially if they are avid readers.
4. Newspaper articles: There is nothing better than a good love story. In a fake newspaper article template, the couple can write and include photos of their relationship from start to present day. This allows the guests to see their love on a more personal level before the wedding.
5. Handmade wax candles: Couples can personally pick out their favorite scents to create handmade wax candles for guests. These can have a label with the couple's name, date of wedding and a thoughtful quote to remember them by. Whether it is lavender or sandalwood, these wax candles can be enjoyed far after the wedding has ended.
