Unique Save-the-Dates

While wedding invitations tend to be more formal, save-the-dates present a unique opportunity to showcase your creativity or allow guests to preview a little snippet of your big-day. Here are a few of my favorite save-the-date ideas from around the Web:

1. Film a save-the-date "movie" and upload it to YouTube. E-mail the link to friends and family (be sure to make DVD copies of the footage and mail it out to non-computer using guests). Check out this ultra-creative clip from Jennifer and Jonathan Lucas for inspiration-- it is so fun!

2. This Checkerboard save-the-date card from FineStationery.com is shaped like a black ring box and opens to reveal your wedding details and a little bit of bling. Why not make your own proposal "Will you save the date for our wedding?"

3. Finally, these save-the-date cookies from The Flour Pot Cookies sweeten the deal for guests who say "yes!"
