When it comes to wedding planning, your save-the-dates are a great place to have some fun and express your wedding theme to your guests in a creative way. There are a lot of personalized, imaginative ideas out there, but at the moment, we are loving save the dates that play on the idea of “penciling” in a date on your calendar. This adorable save-the-date from Melangerie (above) with a generous dose of old-school charm, invites guests to “pencil” in your wedding details and even gives them the pencil to do so. All the information and colors are customizable, and you can include a message on the pencil as well – such a playful idea!

Check out some more ideas using pencils for your save-the-dates below and get that inspiration flowing!
