Fantastic and fun ways to tell guests to save the date

You’ve finally set the date for your big day, and now it’s time to shout it from the rooftops! These days, many people have hectic schedules, and the best way to let them know about your wedding in advance is sending out save the dates. If you have family scattered across the country or around the globe, it’s best to send out your save the dates at least four months before the wedding so that your guests have ample time to book a flight, take off work or find a babysitter.

A lot of newly engaged couples send out magnets as their save the dates, which are super cute and convenient. But if you want to get a little creative so that everyone is extra excited about the event, here are a few quirky ideas:

Graphic novel
Graphic novels and comic books are not only very in right now, but they are also a cute way to let your guests know about your wedding! You can share your actual proposal story by literally painting a picture! Or, create your own unique and quirky characters to tell everyone how you've met. The Knot suggests working with a graphic designer to help you capture the entire story.

Mini puzzle
Make your guests work for it! Send them the pieces of a small puzzle that they’ll have to put together in order to figure out the details of your big day. This is something that you can make yourself with supplies from a local craft store, but you can also order them from a handful of select companies. 

Chocolates
Who wouldn't love getting chocolate in the mail?! The Wedding Wire suggests using Dove Chocolates because the company can personalize them with your names and the date of your ceremony. You can also order personalized M&M candies, and for a fun DIY project, wrap these delicious treats in individual pouches and tie with ribbons in your wedding color palette!

A video
Instead of sending your guests anything in the mail, collect everyone’s email address and send out a “trailer” for your wedding day. If you have a smartphone with a high-quality camera, this idea is easier to do than you might think! You can have a friend be the director or even go all out and hire a professional to do the job. Head to you and your beau's favorite spot, or maybe even to the place where your groom-to-be popped the question! When your guests sit down and view the trailer, they will all feel like they have been along for the whole ride!

Magazine spread
Want to show off your writing skills to all your guests? Create a spread that looks like a magazine! On one side of the spread, use an engagement photo and the other side can include a wide variety of things. The Knot suggests using a map with all your favorite spots in the city of your wedding. If you aren't getting married in a big city, write a story about how you met or incorporate a fun infographic filled with all the important aspects and fun facts of your relationship.

Vinyl
Ideal for music lovers, pressing a 45 with your name and the date of your wedding is a great way to imprint the save the date on anyone’s mind! Put a few of your favorite tracks on the album, like you and your beau's song. If you’re having a themed wedding like the 1930s, use music from that era! Any of your older relatives will love the nostalgia, and younger guests will love the vintage style.
