"Desert"ed Save the Dates

Who said all rustic save the dates have to feature mason jars and lace? This fun save the date incorporates a desert theme while keeping a rustic identity, thanks to the typography and the watercolor effect of the images. You can continue the theme with the rest of your stationary, like invitations or rustic wedding programs.

Pencil Us In

An alternative take on the traditional save the date, we love the play on words used here. Complete with twine around the pencil, this is a wedding that the guests will be "inking" into their calendars.

We Wood Like to Annouce...

The wedding journey started with a "Will you marry me?" and now you're asking your guests, "Wood you attend my wedding?" Puns aside, the twine knot on this beautiful wooden save the date adds a sweet earnestness and element of interest.

Picture This

A picture is worth a thousand words, so why don't you just use one to ask your guests to save the date? Keep it cute and rustic by incorporating hand painted or chalkboard signs or, as in this beachside photo, an antler.
