"Pencil Us In" save-the-dates by SecretCreation

I don't know who actually uses real life pen-to-paper calendars anymore, but I know that even I received this "Pencil Us In" save-the-dates, I would go out and BUY a real calendar just to be able to save that date with that adorable-ass pencil.

Here are a few other creative save-the-dates that will help permanently etch your wedding day into your guests minds…

After seeing a save-the-date magnet that I mistook for a coaster, I had a thought… I don't have a magnetic fridge, but I would use the hell out of a cool coaster. So I looked up "save-the-date coasters" and guess what… they're a thing! And they're funny. I like these "Free Drinks" save-the-date coasters.

  1. While I agree that the pencils are cute as hell, a word of caution. I had a friend who did her save the dates like that and there were two unforeseen consequences. A. The postage to mail them was double what she had anticipated because of the extra weight of the pencil. B. It's no secret that USPS doesn't always handle mail with the utmost care so about a quarter of her guests ended up with broken pencils upon delivery. 🙁
