Quirky and Different Save the Date Ideas 

@BBCBristol recently tweeted “Couple from Bristol prompt ‘save-the-date-again’ wedding cards idea”. The ingenious idea is certainly going to be used a lot this year with all of the uncertainty that 2020 has thrown us all. Its popularity will surely be in the tongue-in-cheek nod that it gives to the global crisis whilst keeping the topic light and more cheerful by remaining firmly in the arena of the couple’s imminent nuptials. These save the dates prove that you can have quirky and different save the dates as well as being tasteful and elegant in your approach to your Big Day. At Country House Weddings HQ, we’ve put together a few of our favourite most unique wedding Save the Date ideas.

Whether you need Save the Date or Save the Date Again, there are a huge variety of options to choose from, some wackier than others.

10. Save the Date Tea Towels

This is one of our favourite ideas because it combines giving a useful and practical gift with a gift that means your guests are going to remember the date of your wedding every single time they are doing the washing up!

9. Save the Date Festival Wristbands

For music lovers, or for couples who are having a festival-themed wedding, these Save the Date wristbands are the perfect solution to letting your guests know that they need to earmark your Big Day in their calendar.

8. Save the Date Message in a Bottle

Can you imagine how excited you would be if you received a message in a bottle? It has got to be one of the most unique ways that we have heard of for letting people know about the day that they are getting hitched. If you want a conversation starter as well as an enigmatic way to get people thinking about your Big Day then this is it. This would, of course, be perfect for any beach-themed weddings!

7. Save the Date Luggage Tags

For destination weddings, this has got to be the perfect way to tell people when and most importantly WHERE you are getting married.

6. Ski Lift Save the Dates

Either the perfect choice for another destination or wedding, or the perfect choice for ski loving couples, or even for couples who met doing a ski season. A Ski Lift Save the Date will certainly get tongues wagging.

5. Save the Date Coasters

As with our number one item on this list, the beauty of a Save the Date coaster is that it is easy to send being a small, flat item (usually very light too) and is practical as well as being an item that your guests will be able to keep for years as a memento of the day and in the run-up to your wedding to keep the date of your Big Day at the front of their minds.

4. Save the Date Postcards

For weddings involving some travel or with a travel theme, or if you no longer live anywhere near your home town, a Save the Date postcard is a sweet and romantic way to notify your guests of your wedding date and location.

3. Save the Date Custom Illustration

This is a lovely and very artistic way to get people organised for your wedding as well as being an attractive picture that they’ll be happy to have up in their home for weeks or even months on the run-up to your wedding.

2. Save the Date Throwback Photos

We love this idea of using childhood photos of the bride and groom to create your unique save the dates. It works very well when the bride and groom are both very family-oriented.

1. Save the Date fridge magnets

It might not be the quirkiest way to let people know to pencil your Big Day into their calendar, but we think it is the most practical way. A fridge magnet is a great way to give people a little gift in advance of your Big Day as well as giving people a useful reminder that they can see every day when they’re in their kitchen.

There is all sorts of etiquette around when to send your Save the Dates as well as what information to put on there, so you must do your research before you click ‘Buy’ or head off to the printers.
