40 Unique & Unusual Save the Date Ideas

Let the build-up to your big day begin!

So you've decided on a date and booked the venue for your big day. The next step is to send out your Save the Date! A Save the Date gives your nearest and dearest time to get themselves organised, to pop your special day in their calendar, and let the build-up to your wedding begin. Of course, a text can do the job, but sending a more creative Save the Date, either in the post or digitally, will really get your guests excited about your wedding and set the tone for your invites and your day. With that in mind, we've trawled through our favourite stationers, online stores and crafters, and gathered 40 unique Save The Date ideas to get you started, from shoppable options, to printables and even some DIY projects.
