There are plenty of creative ways to announce the date of your destination wedding. From maps to destination wedding themed photos and clever wording, we have a variety of unique save the date ideas for your destination wedding.
If you’ll be personalizing your own custom save the dates for your destination wedding, consider adding a beautiful map to your cards. If you’re an artist, try drawing your own map. If you’re ordering your destination wedding save the dates on WeddingPaperie.com, you can opt for their designer consultation option and ask one of their designers to create a custom, hand-drawn map for you.
You can even have them highlight important destinations, like where your ceremony will be held, the hotel you blocked rooms at, and where the airport will be. Including a map on your destination wedding save the dates will not only be cute and unique, it will be very helpful to guests.
In addition to a map, try including a unique destination save the date photo and save the date wording to your cards. Use the suggestions below to gain inspiration.
Unique Save The Date Photo Ideas: Destination Weddings
Adding a photo to your save the dates can add a lot of personal flavor and character to your cards. For a destination wedding, you can of course add a traditional photo of you and your fiance, but it will be more fun to capture a fun snapshot that reflects your wedding’s unique destination.
If you’re tying the knot in Hawaii or some other warm weather destination, try snapping a few photos on the beach. You can even inscribe your wedding date and destination in the sand for a very unique, beachy destination wedding save the date.
For a destination wedding somewhere cold, try snapping photos in the snow and inscribing your wedding date and special news in the snow instead of sand.
For a more general yet still destination wedding save the date photo, try having a photographer snap a few travel themed photos of you and your fiance. You can give your photo shoot a travel theme by incorporating maps and suitcases in your photos. You can have your photos taken at a place like an airport, train station, or even aboard a boat.

Unique Save The Date Ideas: Beach Weddings
Beyond beach save the date photos and cute beach save the date wording, you can add beachy vibes to your save the dates with the type of paper and design you choose for your save the date cards.
Consider going with a watercolor design printed on pearlescent paper. If you have a big budget and are willing to spend more on your save the dates, purchase hand painted watercolor save the dates.
If you’re on a tight budget, check out WeddingPaperie.com and PurpleTrail.com. They have a variety of gorgeous watercolor beach wedding save the dates.
Plus they have a great selection of quality paper options, including pearlscent, a beautiful shimmery paper with a pearl-like finish — a perfect choice for a beach wedding!
Unique Save The Date Photo Ideas: Beach Weddings
As we mentioned in the destination wedding photo ideas section, you can take your save the date photos on a beach. You can inscribe your special news in the sand or you can draw a heart or your names instead.
For a more unique and daring option, one ideal for ocean lovers or avid swimmers, hire a professional photographer who specializes in underwater photography. Have the photographer snap a few photos of you and fiance underwater.
Where your underwater photo shoot is taken is up to you. I think they work best in ocean settings, because you can get colorful coral, rocks, and sometimes even critters in the background. They also work well in pools.
After you have a few underwater photos you love, add them to custom beach wedding save the dates. Then complete your unique save the dates with one of the beach wedding save the date wording listed below.
