Getting married is an expensive business; from the perfect wedding dress for the big day to the countless intricacies such as catering, flowers and entertainment - there can be plenty to keep on top of as well as a lot of expenditure.
It’s no surprise then, that many couples who are waiting to tie the knot look to save spends wherever they can. Of course, the earlier you start saving the better, so why not kick off cutting your wedding costs at the very beginning of planning?
Save The Date Cards
Though they may seem small, save the date cards soon rack up your expenses and will ultimately add to the total sum of your wedding bill. So, if you’re wondering how to save money planning a wedding, why not create your own custom save the dates?
Not only will a bulk purchase of custom save the dates cut costs, but they’re also a creative and unique way to invite guests to your special day. Here at Zap! Creatives, we offer a fantastic customisation service that allows you to create your very own charms, keyrings, pin badges and stickers down to the very last detail.
Custom Save The Date Charms
Sending a custom charm as a save the date not only notifies your guest-to-be, it also gives them an amazing keepsake to remember the wedding day by too.
Zap! Creatives allow you to choose from acrylic, metal and wood materials for your charm, so you’re able to get exactly the right look for your unique save the date invite, even tying it into your wedding’s theme.
When it comes to designs, the limit is your imagination. All of our designs (and yours) are digitally printed and laser-cut to precise measurements, so you can be sure that your bespoke wedding products are absolutely perfect and comprised of high-quality materials.
If you’re looking for a charming save the date keepsake that your guests can carry around with them as a memento, look no further than our printed keyrings. Ideal for attaching to your keys, a bag or an item of clothing, a printed keyring is the perfect way to mark your special day.
If you’ve got a wedding theme, why not incorporate a related design into the keyring? For example, if your wedding has a beach theme, you could design a save the date keyring in the style of a palm tree, or some vintage items if you’re running with a retro theme.
Of course, you can always stick to a classic wedding concept, fashioning a keyring into a design that ties in with your wedding flowers or dress code.
Pin Badges to Mark the Big Day
If you consider keyrings to be a little too bulky or not in-fitting with your wedding’s theme, you can always pick up some custom pin badges to send as a save the date instead.
Available in a range of sizes, you can pick dimensions that best suit your custom design in either acrylic or wooden material options. Whether that’s a picture of the wedding couple, an image of the venue, or simply just the names and date of the big day, the choice is entirely up to you!
Our pin badges are great for themed weddings too, you can easily tie a theme into a design, even requesting guests to wear the badges to the wedding, a move that’s ideal for carrying on a concept and providing some fantastic photo ops!
Stylish Save The Date Stickers
If you’d rather stick to the tried, tested and traditional card approach for your save the dates, that’s not to say you can’t save a little money and have a fantastic looking custom design too.
At Zap! Creatives, we also offer custom printed stickers that are perfect for sprucing up a classic card wedding notification, with any design, shape and quantity available depending on your preferred style and the size of your guest list.
Whether you’d like a high-quality printed sticker of the happy couple, a design that ties in with a theme or simply the venue and date, the options are endless!
