The perfect Save the Dates for your Harry Potter-themed wedding #Invitation DIY#Invitations#diy invitations#harry potter#invitations#owl#printables#save the date#steal-this-idea Updated Mar 15 2021 (Posted Feb 9 2012) Megan Finley Horowitz meggyfin Chad and Casey are having a "Harry Potter-esque" wedding. So what better way to introduce their guests to what magical wedding experiences await them than by delivering their Save the Dates via messenger owl! Okay, well, maybe not exactly, but these owl Save the Dates are the next best thing, wouldn't ya say? For extra nods to Harry Potter you could always use the the Lumos font or Harry P font for your the Save the Date! Keep reading to see how you can use this owl template to make your own Harry Potter-themed Save the Dates, or for your table numbers, or shrink it down and use them as seating cards, etc. Casey explains how she pulled off this owl-tastic invite: I got this owl from The Graphics Fairy. I love her stuff! She posts all sorts of Vintage Clip Art and Advertisements and such for craft purposes. Simply download the fonts you want to use and save the owl or copy it into a photo editor. Then add whatever text you like in whatever font you like. I did all mine from scratch with Corel Paint Shop Pro X2. Here's the blank owl template. Save it and get creating! Megan Finley Horowitz When Megan's not writing, traveling, and sleeping, she's eating like the fate of the world depends on it. (You're welcome, world!) You can snoop into her personal life over on her website The Dash and Dine! @meggyfin @thedashanddine @meggyfin PREVIOUS Amanda & Mike's mega-handmade awesome farm wedding NEXT TETRIS lightbox decor made from Valentine's Day chocolate boxes Show/Hide comments [ 13 ] Alternate option to really make a statement: wedding-invitation Howler. Reply AWESOME idea & great theme! 🙂 Reply Love! Our wedding invitations were actually Harry Potter themed and they were designed to look like little Marauder's Maps 🙂 Reply Did you include the Marauder's Map easter egg? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r0FDGvp16cw (kinda nsfw) Reply I had no idea that was there!! How hilarious! Reply ZOMGGG! Thank you Ariel! Reply I directed a bride getting married with a similar themed wedding to this post. She loved the idea. Thank you off-beat bride. 🙂 Reply This is great. Could be used in so many creative ways in addition to Save the Dates. Reply So cool!! Great and magic idea!! I think it'll surprise the attendants with the invitation cards!!! Reply We're planning on putting a white owl (aka Hedwig) on top of our card box at the wedding, so that our guests can deliver the cards to us via owl 😉 Reply LOVE! Reply Just saying Jamie and Michael..Prefer this to the GOT red wedding scene! Anyway got to go now. Laura Reply Great idea for a save-the-date, especially for the Harry Potter fans among us. And really, if someone is NOT an HP fan do you even want them at your wedding? 😉 Reply Join the conversation Cancel ReplyYour email address will not be published.
