The next step in our wedding planning adventure, now that we’ve chosen a venue and proposed to our bridesmaids, is sending out Save The Dates to our guests. After our Zazzle success with the bridesmaid cards, we decided to check out their Save The Dates too. It didn’t take long to find the perfect design to fit our bookish theme.
They look like Library Cards (although it’s only after I purchased them that I realised not everyone will know that among our not-so-bookish family and friends) and they’re fully customisable. We changed the title to ‘The Next Chapter’ and I changed the corners to rounded to make them look a bit softer. And of course I added details of the location of the wedding, too. Each comes with its own envelope, too. They’re £1.63 each, but there are always voucher codes available if you search online so I got 50% off of the order.
I’m so, so pleased with them now that they’ve arrived, and have loved handing them out to everyone. It’s the first impression they’ll get of our wedding so it’s nice to give a hint towards the bookish theme. I also used a heart-shaped cutter to create confetti out of pages of old books and sprinkled them inside the envelopes. Hopefully that’ll also help people realise they’re looking at a library card!
Of course, not everyone’s going to want Library Card Save The Dates so I’ve collected five other gorgeous designs from across the web as inspiration.
Initially I was looking into getting magnets made for our Save The Dates. I still think they’re brilliant, as your guests can put them on their fridge to remind them that your big day is approaching every time they get the milk out for a cuppa! These magnets are £1.50 each from Not on the High Street.
I love these ‘Pencil Us In’ pencils as alternative Save The Dates, too.
Similar to the scratch-off bridesmaid proposal cards I recommended, I love these scratch-off Save The Dates. You can pick a colour that suits your wedding at checkout.
This little cards are really cute because, when your guests open them, they’ll tie a knot in the string threaded through them.
For something really fun that’ll make your guests laugh, I love these modern Save The Date cards from Zazzle. So cool.
