Send these stickers out to your loved ones on a piece of card detailing the date and location of your wedding and as them to stick your faces onto that date!

Save The Date - Make a video and post it on Facebook! - You can always use the powerful and free mode of social media. If one of you is particularly creative you could make a memorable video - you could include your favourite songs, shoot scenes at your favourite places or you could even recreate the story of how you first met. The possibility is endless and the budget is minimal. 


Save The Date Photos: Why not grab your camera and get creative. Go on Pinterest and you will find lots of couples who have come up with some very creative saving dates using their camera and a little imagination. Some of my favourites include couple who etched their dates in chalk on stone and drew other objects such as floating balloons and giant hearts - they then staged themselves in place on the floor next to their etchings e.g. with the chalked heart and date in between them, or as if holding onto the balloons themselves. You could go simpler and simply hold a piece of paper with the date or the bride could hold a sheet of card saying "I said YES". There are lots and lots of different options. Once you are happy with the way your photo has turned out you can get your cards professionally printed for a relatively low cost at a company such as Vistaprint.
