Fab Friday Feature: Holiday Save The Dates Part 1

With the holiday season upon us, it seemed like a great time to spotlight some great holiday themed save the date announcements. These designs are great for anyone planning a holiday or winter wedding. However, you do not have to be planning a Christmas, New Years or winter wedding to send out announcements with this theme. I have seen friends send out holiday themed save the dates in lieu of Christmas cards and thought it was a charming idea and most likely saved them money and the hassle of sending out both. It is also possible that you are planning a summer wedding and this time of year simply marks the half-way point between then and now.

This week we are featuring an adorable selection of holiday and winter themed designs from Minted.com. The first design is this Winter Wonderland design featuring a landscape scene complete with snowy meadow and an assortment of pine trees. The modern and fresh typography with this design adds to its whimsical charm.

The simplicity and delicate illustration of this next design is perfect for the couple who wants a holiday design that does not necessarily scream Christmas or winter. The vintage wreath frames the text and hints at Christmas time while the subdued color scheme is reminiscent of a winter with the icy blue hue.
