We love a good theme save the date. If your wedding is taking place either on or near a holiday, why not make your save the date match the season or holiday. Your save the dates can be fun and creative, and that's what themes are all about. Think skulls or pumpkins for Halloween, pine trees or poinsettias for the holidays, or even hearts for Valentine's Day. Designs that coordinate with the time of year you're tying the knot can are fun and will certainly be memorable. It's a nice way to keep your save the dates in line with your wedding theme.
