Stuck on a Save the Date idea? We have you covered!

Congratulations you're getting Married! Now its time to start thinking about your wedding date and letting your guest's know when they will be sharing your special day.

Save the Dates make a great first impression and are a great way to get your guests organised and prepared for your day.
If it is a destination wedding, Save the Dates are a great way for your guest to let you know early on if they can make it, and even secure accommodation or time off work as soon as possible.

If you're looking for some inspiration and ideas for your save the dates, you've come to the right place. We have a variety of Save The Dates for many wedding themes.

1. The Beach Wedding

With breathtaking views, sand between your toes and the beers on ice, a beach wedding is an Australian Favourite.

To compliment this theme we have the perfect Save the Date Magnet solutions for you.
Magnet save the dates are a brilliant invitation idea with the added feature of practicality. There is always the worry that a guest may misplace their invite or forget the wedding details. This way it is on their fridge and in their view each day.

The Good: A large variety of Save the Dater Magnets are available, they are full colour and can feature photos (e.g. engagement or location photos), very practical, will fit into any budget, save the dates also available to match the same theme

The Bad: Due to the way they are printed you are unable to have individual guest names; and they aren't as formal as high end paper or engraved invitations

The Bottom Line: Magnet Save the dates are a great option for a couple on a budget and are the most practical option the market. You can include a photo of your own of the couple or a shot of the wedding location in the design makes the invitation truly personalised. Guests are likely to keep these on their fridge fr many years to come. We also have magnet invitations available, to keep your theme consistent.

2. Rustic/Vintage Wedding

The vintage chic wedding theme is an elegant, minimalist and heart-warming style and definitely a favourite of mine! The abundance of textures, patterns and whimsical details shine in this theme!

If you are channeling a rustic/country/wine region theme then engraved wooden save the dates are likely to be the perfect fit for you.

The Good: Very unique with a lot of WOW factor, they are affordable, can include guest names and they also come with magnetic backing (so can be placed on the fridge) We are also very flexible with our designs and are happy to work with you to create a unique design to suit your wedding at no extra cost.

The Bad: May not suit all wedding themes, are non-traditional so many not be to everyone's tastes

The Bottom Line: These would be my pick. I simply love them and the intricate finish and detail of the engraving. The wood itself is also very light weight and very strong, meaning they cost no more to post than regular invitations. They are also available in two sizes mini and 11B and can be paired with place cards, invitations, centrepieces and menus to compliment your wedding theme.

3. The Lavish Hollywood Wedding

Your're only getting married once right? Why not do it in style! Be remembered for the most elegant, sophisticated and stylish wedding, a day that you're guests will love and always talk about! The best day of your life should be celebrated in style and we have the perfect save the date ideas to set the bar high.

Acrylic save the dates are the hottest item in the invitation market at the moment. Available in Silver, Black, Gold, Clear and Frosted the design and colour can be used to match the style and theme of the wedding.

The Good: Range of colours and designs available to suit almost all wedding themes. You are also able to incorporate guest names, made from strong but light acrylic, on darker shades of acrylic you can include a magnetic backing. The Save the dates are available in the mini and 11B size.

The Bad: On lighter shades of acrylic such as clear and frosted you are unable to have a magnetic backing, due to the material you are unable to fold the invitation.

The Bottom Line: At a price below both traditional paper invitations acrylic save the sates offer an enticing and unique invitation option. AND we also have acrylic invitations available!
