The organisation and build up to your wedding day is a fun and memorable experience for any bride to be.

Did you know that your save the dates are the first chance you get to impress your guests? Not only do they get everyone excited about your wedding, but it also a fantastic way to set the tone for everything else which is to follow.

There are lots of designs and themes you can use for your save the dates to add a personal touch and create something extra special. If you’re looking for some inspiration, Papermilldirect can help you. Here we have listed some ideas to help you create memorable save the dates. 

Save The Date

Get Creative with A Photo

Why don’t you surprise your guests with a photo instead of a card; this will make your save the date one to remember. Pick any photograph you wish, from a fun snap of you both having fun, to a candid image that highlights your love for each other. This unexpected detail gives a truly unique and personal feel to your save the date.

Here at Papermilldirect, we stock a huge range of luxury wedding envelopes to help you create your ideal save the date. Coming in various sizes and colours, you can be sure to find an envelope to suit your tastes and needs. Our Kraft Card or Buff Card is also a great idea for those looking for a more rustic theme! 

Calligraphy Cards

One idea for creating a beautiful save the date is using calligraphy. This stunning handwritten method provides a personal touch and it is an aesthetically pleasing design to WOW your guests.

In the digital era we live in, handwritten letters, notes and invites are becoming more of a rarity. Creating your own save the date with calligraphy will bring back the simplicity and excitement of DIY designs. A hand-lettered invitation conveys an intimate and thoughtful message that your guests will enjoy.

If this idea inspires you, there are a number of ways to practice and improve your calligraphy skills, ensuring your save the dates are just as you intended. For a stand-out design, white ink on our Kraft Card or Buff Card is a great choice. 

Magnet Save the Dates

Why not be inventive and imaginative by creating a save the date with a magnet attached at the back. This is one way to ensure your guests won’t misplace your invite as they can stick this straight onto their fridge as a reminder of your upcoming wedding.

You can even take this one step further by designing a custom magnet with a picture of one of your favourite memories, to add more of a personal touch, showing you have put a lot of thought into the theme, design and creation of your save the dates. 

If you’re thinking of adding stamps to your save the dates, our wedding stamps are a perfect addition.

Save the dates are a way of showing off your design ideas, playing a huge part in getting you and your guests excited for your big day. We hope our ideas helped to inspire you.
