"Our save the dates turned out amazing! We are excited to send them out."
"Loved my save the dates!"
"Great quality paper and image. Worth every penny."
"This was just what we wanted, a good selection and examples to check out."
"We ordered save the dates for our wedding. Love that we were able to personalize."
Your significant other just popped the big question, and you said yes! Of course, you probably want to let the people closest to you know the big news right away. While you should definitely tell your closest friends and loved ones over the phone if not in person, there are probably many other people who would love to know about your marriage plans. You could potentially surprise everyone with an unexpected wedding invitation in the mail. Another option is to get creative with your engagement announcement cards. Here are a few creative ideas.
Make a Video
Be it a music video, parody or a serious message, it’s easy to create your own video and post it privately to YouTube or other social media, then send an invitation link for friends and family to view it. Make the big reveal at the end of the video, and don’t forget to include a peek at that ring.
Post a Creative Photo Collage on Social Media
Photo collages and memes are all the craze on social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. You can create your own photo collage that creatively reveals that you and your significant other are tying the knot. If there was a photographer there to take pictures of the proposal, try to include some of those. Keep the viewers in suspense and end the collage with whether or not you said yes.
Send Them a Card
If making a video and creating a photo collage seem like a bit of work, then you can create premium save the date cards that announce the big day. If anyone in your circle of friends and family didn’t know about your engagement before, they will now.
Your engagement is but one captivating part of your personal love story. If you are unsure of what to include in a wedding announcement card, just remember that it doesn't have to say much to make a big impact.
