Save the dates, which are sent out anywhere from six months to a year before your wedding, are a thoughtful way to let your potential guests know you’ve confirmed the date for your big day. If you’re planning a destination wedding, save the dates are even more important and should be mailed out as soon as you’ve booked a venue. Send the message out loud and clear with save the dates that reflect your taste and bridal personality. Creating clever save the dates need not break the bank; many of our favourites involve budget-friendly DIY projects. Balloons, confetti, magnets and postcards are all simple ideas that will delight your guests and get them excited to attend the main event.
