Fun with Photo Save-the-Dates
Paperia | August 2014
Many couples send out save-the-date cards to increase the likelihood of guests being able to attend their wedding celebration.
Save-the-date cards can take many forms, but an increasingly popular trend is a photo save-the-date card, postcard, or magnet.
What picture to use?
Finding that perfect shot can be tough! Many couples have amassed hundreds, if not thousands, of pictures by the time they become engaged.
Before you head for the photo albums, consider using a recent, high-quality photo from your engagement shoot. It’s helpful to go into the shoot knowing that you would like a special photo for the save-the-date. That way, you can be prepared to experiment with a few different poses specific to your intended layout/design.
Props are a great way to add a little fun and whimsy to your engagement photo shoot! You and your fiancé might…
- Hold up a chalkboard with your names and wedding date written on it
- Carve your initials and wedding date into a tree and pose next to it
- Pull on a large, knotted rope for a “tying the knot” themed save-the-date
- Lay an open calendar at your feet and put your engagement ring around the wedding date
The possibilities are endless, and there are literally tons of inspiring ideas available on Pinterest and wedding websites.

Who gets one?
Every guest you plan to invite should receive a save-the-date. They should also be sent to your wedding party, parents, and siblings. Even though they already know about the wedding, the save-the-date will serve as both a formal announcement and a keepsake.
