There are so many great options when it comes to save the dates, that it is always awesome when we think outside of the box and possibly send something that your guests may have never received. Feel free to open up to the attendees and educate them a little bit about you guys. Some things that you can add to the timeline save the date are:
- When and how did you meet?
- First date
- Places you traveled
- Proposal date
- Wedding date
It will be a great illustration of your lives together!

It is so awesome that the creativity is following in the wedding world. Although many couples still beautiful wedding save the date magnets or postcards, some are getting creative a bit and doing things that represent them as a couple or their personal style. If you remember a few posts back, Kimberly and Joe did crossword puzzle save the dates, obviously someone is a crossword lover.

We think that Nadine and Eddy make the perfect models! We will show you more pictures from their AMAZING engagement session but for now you can feast your eyes on the poster.

I think the main reason why I get along with my clients so much is that they are just like me! They step it up a notch and do things that have not been done before, yup we try and make our own trends. I was so excited when my clients Kim and Joe shared their invitation mock up designed by Sandi Spells designs. The crossword puzzle was so fun and most importantly, so them! They are a perfect for couples that would rather not send save the dates with their pictures.
