Save the Date Ideas Your Guests will Actually Love
There’s no shortage of save the date ideas out there but if you’re going to send them, make sure they’re something your guests will actually love. Really, you don’t have to send a save the date if you don’t want to, so don’t feel compelled to just print something out at home just so you have it. Send something unique they’ll actually love and remember. There’s a time period when we were getting so many save the dates in the mail, most just got tossed. If that’s what’s going to happen, then what’s the point, right? Today I’m sharing 10 unique save the dates your guests will actually love (and maybe even keep!). Each one is a fun shape that will definitely make an impression on your guests. Plus, download free graphics on the Journey Junkies page of each shape below to design your own invites.

First up, we’re keeping it simple, but fun nonetheless. A circle save the date is super easy to do provided you have a circle cutter (you can find some recommendations at the bottom). Here you’ll find our magnetic ones.
What’s a more perfect way to show your friends and family that you’re marrying the one you love than with a heart?
Next up is the tag shape. Another classic, but is perfect for a travel theme, or you can attach it to a photo or something special to give your guests.
Another idea is one that is near and dear to my heart. I’ll be honest, I love mason jars. They are so simple, so cute, and so fun. I know they’ve been done over and over, but it’s still a favorite of mine and I love it when I get an order for these below.
If you’re planning vineyard wedding or just love wine, this one is of you. The wine bottle shape is a fun way to let your guests know the theme of your wedding.
Everyone loves the photo save the date, it’s a great way to show off those engagement photos. So why not make it even more fun but changing the shape. There are so many different “frames” you could choose from, our favorite is below.
If you’re a travel junkie like me or you’re having a destination wedding, then these next two are definitely for you. First, an airplane is a new and fun way to let your guests know of your “destination I do”.
Next for the save the date ideas is for a travel themed wedding, and it’s one that I truly adore. This turned out so much cuter than I thought it would. The globe shape is great because even if you’re not having a destination wedding, you’re just travel junkies, it’s perfect.
The last two designs are for the “natural” wedding, or the bride who loves flowers, tree stumps, and all things floral. First up is the tree slice. You can find where to buy the tree slices below in our recommended supplies and tools.
Lastly, this design is great because it can work with any color scheme. Who doesn’t have flowers at a wedding? That’s right, no one. These fun shaped save the dates come in a flower ring and there several options to choose from so you’re sure to find what’s right for you and your special day.
