Unique Save-the-Date Ideas

Nothing is more exciting than sending your Save-the-Dates!! It’s official, your wedding date is set, your city is picked, and you are getting married to the person of your dreams. Keep in mind, your Save-the-Dates are the first pieces of paper your guests are going to receive, so make sure you wow your guests from the get-go with something more unique and a little playful. Here are some really fun Save-the-Date ideas…

How cute is this Save-the-Date

Have your guests pencil in the wedding date by sending them a fun pencil telling them so.

This concept is perfect for the creative photo Bride. The film strip pulls out with all the wedding date information.

This Save-the-Date is perfect for that Hollywood Chic couple.

The save the date magazine is an innovative idea designed by Hitchcock Ink, based in Washington D.C. The save the date magazine (which can also be used as your invitation or program) is an 8 page booklet and measures 8.5″ x 5.5″ when folded. The full-color cover and text gives the look of your own personalized magazine, while the inside “chapters” give guests a look at your unique story. Tell guests about how you met, where you got engaged, and share some of your favorite hobbies. The paper is printed on high quality 100 lb. text weight gloss paper (the same paper used in printing your favorite magazines).

Happy Friday!

Holiday Cocktail: Pomegranate Gin Sling

With the holidays quickly apporaching and the Christmas parties about to begin, I thought it would be good to share a few holiday cocktails.

Pomegranate Gin Sling
A classic gin sling is dressed for festive parties when made with seasonal pomegranate juice and decorated with crimson pomegranate fruit. Both simple syrup and agave syrup are widely available at liquor stores. To make your own simple syrup, boil 2 parts sugar to 1 part water, stirring just until sugar dissolves; reduce until thickened. Cool before using. Recipe courtesy of Cooking Light.

  • 1/4 cup gin

  • 1/4 cup pomegranate juice, chilled

  • 1 tablespoon agave syrup or simple syrup

  • 1 teaspoon fresh lime juice

  •  8 pomegranate seeds

  • 2 lime slices

  • Preparation:
    1. Combine first 4 ingredients; divide evenly between 2 chilled glasses; divide seeds between glasses. Garnish with lime slices.
