Last year I wrote a post on 22 Creative save the dates for your inspiration and it’s been a very big hit! The post gives you examples of a range of creative save the dates from typography based, to magnets and even balloons. One of the popular ideas was a photography based one. This isn’t surprising because it’s a great way to personalise your save the date giving your guests a reminder of your wedding and your love for each other. (It may sound cheesy but I love cheese – no literally I really do!).
When you are having your engagement shoot, you may want to think about how to incorporate the shots into your save the dates. Do you want to hold up the date? Lean against giant letters? Even if you’re not using your engagement photographs, you can use any other photographs for your save the date. Here are some examples and templates below!
It’s all about the photographs on this save the date, one main with three photographs on the right. Pick your favourite one as the main photo, edit the text and you’re done! // Wedding Paper Divas
Similar to the first one but this is an exquisitely inclined save the date, using three photographs with the opposite layout. Subtle changes can make a huge difference so this may be more appealing for you. // Wedding Paper Divas
How about using your baby photographs on your save the date? A quirky alternative idea that will give your guests something to laugh, talk or ‘aww’ about! // Zazzle
