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.

8. Globe

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.
