10 Most Creative And Unique 'Save The Date' Invitation Ideas For Indian Couples

“Unique and trendy” are the mantras of the Indian weddings these days. Whether it is modernising any existing tradition or adopting a new one altogether, it is all happening here. One such trend that has been a popular part of the western weddings for long, and that many Indian couples are also experimenting with, is of sending out- “save the date” cards. Basically, it is a card that you send out to inform your relatives and friends about your wedding date a few months before you send them the "official" wedding invitation card.

Normally invitation cards are distributed 20-25 days before the wedding. But, save the date cards are sent months in advance, once the wedding details, like date and place, are finalised. This is also a great option, especially if couple is having a destination wedding, as it would help the guests stay prepared much in advance. There are various ways in which you can make your save the date cards unique and create a lasting impression on your guests. Let us show you some fun ideas!

If you swear by films, then why not try a Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge style invite? Yes! Select your favourite film poster, or filmi pose; and simply replace the actors with your photographs.

You can either get the posters hand-painted by an artist or get yourself photographed by posing in the same way as the stars in the poster.
