Save-the-dates not only inform your guests of the wedding date but also set the tone and feel of the wedding. It’s a way for couple’s to showcase their creativity and allow their expected guests to have fun when they open their mail. From balloons to scratch offs, here are our favorite interactive save-the-dates:
1. Balloons: Your guests will be blown away when they inflate this save-the-date.

2. Web Site: For those eco-friendly couples, creating a web site that depicts your relationship and proposal is the perfect way for your guests to get to know you better. It can even double as your invitations. For inspiration, check out Jess and Russ’s story or create your own.
3. Scratch Offs: Build the suspense by letting your guests guess the date of your wedding. Then, reveal it after they scratch it off on this save-the-date.

Every detail of Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds’ Sept. 9 wedding has been kept a secret, except for the venue and dress. Here’s what we know: According to Martha Stewart Weddings, Lively wore an off-white Marchesa dress with a silk tulle bodice adorned with crystal and rose gold embroidery. From these details, the dresses pictured above could be a cross between what she walked down the aisle in. It’s too bad that we have to wait for exclusive pictures from Martha Stewart Weddings until December, but for now why not take a look at our dress gallery for inspiration.
