If you're getting married this summer, it's a good time to send out a little Save The Date now, if you haven't done so already. We really love the idea of a creative save the dates that goes beyond a pre-made or custom made card design.

There's loads of instructions for DIY save the dates out there. Just browse the web and find your favorite. Here are a few of ours:

"We're tying the knot" save the date by Lisa featured on The Natural Wedding Company blog. When one opens the card, the wide sling of package string pulls into a tight knot. So cute!

Scratch off save the date tutorial from Martha Stewart Weddings. This is awesome! Check out more save the date ideas right here on Martha's page.

Photo save the dates are not only super-easy, but also very personal. If you're booking a session with a professional photographer, you have the added bonus of getting a great set of engagement pictures at the same time. And all you need to do after is to get a stack of save the date photos developed or print them out on your photo printer, stick them in envelopes and send out.

Super-cute save the date shoot by Korielynn Photography.

This is so easy to diy and perfect for a beach wedding! Just go to the beach on a nice day, draw in the sand and snap a few pictures. If you're not lucky enough to live near the ocean or the weather is not on your side, you can order these custom made babies by fancy this photo on etsy.

A super-easy way to diy your photo save the date is to make some fun props and signs with a "save the date" and your wedding date, head out to the next photo booth and shoot a strip of pictures. Scan the ready strip and print it onto photo paper, then send it to your friends and families. For more inspiration, just put "photobooth save the date" into google.

Video save the dates are a creative and different way to send out your wedding announcement. And they are a lot better for the environment than paper ones.

Save The Date from Gunther Gheeraert on Vimeo. Amazingly beautiful!

You could use your phone camera to shoot the video. Sure, the clip won't look as gorgeous as this one by Gunther Gheeraert, but there's some great video apps available for your iphone that will give your video a prettier look. I'm using the 8mm camera app for little projects. It comes with several vintage film filters and is worth the few dollars it costs.

If you don't have a video camera, you could do a stop motion clip.

Great artwork in this save the date by Ellen & Tim.

Shira & Avi - Save the Date from Avi Gerver on Vimeo. This is one of the most cheerful and awesome stop motion save the dates I've ever seen. It put such a big smile on my face! Awesome job! Must have taken a looong time to make this though. Kudos to Shira & Avi!

If you're interested in a stop motion video save the date, we can make one for you! A table-top one like the one from Jason Harmon or the one of Ellen and Tim for couples all around the world, but if you want to be IN the clip, it's probably better if you live somewhere near Helsinki. Just contact us and we'll figure out something fun and personal just for you. We can also do an engagement session / save the date combo shoot.

  1. These are some really cute "save the date" ideas! I especially love "we're tying the knot" one and the confetti one! Such fun ways to show your personality, especially if the invitation is formal. I love graphic design so I created my own "save the date" on my computer and then uploaded it and used offset printing services to have them printed. Maybe not as creative as some of these, but definitely easy and it showed off my personality!

  2. Wedding is very beautiful occasion of the life

  3. The hall we booked had the maximum capacity of about 150 people. Having a limit like that has its pros and cons, but more pros. It definitely helps keep the guest list on check!
