Getting Creative with Save the Dates

Her at The Vows of Friendship, W and I are working to customize our weddings and seek creative ways to accomplish things, but we are finding it so hard to be original. Between Pinterest and so many amazing sources (*cough*cough* Style Me Pretty, Snippet and Ink, 100 Layer Cake, Green Wedding Shoes, etc.), it feels like almost everything has been done. This especially feels like the case with our Save the Dates. W and I are both taking our engagement photos within the next month or so and are both so excited to share them with you! I am currently working on a top secret project for our Save the Dates, so stay tuned for the final result! In the meantime, here are some of our favorite inspiration images for Save the Dates and just why VOF loves them:

This Kraft Paper Save the Date is wonderfully simple, yet feels romantic at the same time. We love the handmade elements and personal touches. Would I be crazy to try to make 300 hundred of these?



How could this Illustrated Save the Date not make you smile? This couple did a lovely job branding their wedding and incorporating fun, personal elements that add character and set them apart. 



This Sweet Typographical Save the Date just makes me swoon. As self-proclaimed design nerds, how could we not fall in love with these beauties? We’re envisioning, a watercolor invite with handwritten calligraphy. Sigh!


This Scroll Style Save the Date has a royal, elegant feel. We love that they kept it simple and elegant, using calligraphy and velum. Just tie with a thin gold ribbon for extra pizazz and it could be perfect!
