Save-the-dates are announcements sent to wedding guests six to 12 months before the wedding invitations are sent. Couples send save-the-dates to inform their guests of their wedding date and location, providing them with ample notice to arrange for time off of work, and/or book airfare and a hotel room if necessary. Save-the-dates are almost always informal in design. They can be printed on refrigerator magnets, handmade or custom-ordered in any number of styles or designs.

Silly Photo Magnets
Save-the-date magnets are useful mediums because they can be stuck on the refrigerator or any other prominent metal object, making them less likely to get lost than their paper counterparts. Photo magnets can be designed and ordered online from various suppliers. To make funny save-the-dates, ask someone to take several photos of you and your fiancé making silly faces. Then choose a supplier to order your save-the-date magnets from, upload the photos to the company's website and insert the images into a multi-photo template.
If you or someone you know is artistically talented, make a short comic strip depicting you and your fiancée. Alternatively, a number of suppliers offer customisable comic strip save-the-date cards. The comic strip can portray the way you and your partner met in a humorous way, or it can feature an entirely fictional storyline that will make your guests laugh. If you will be making the comic strip yourself, copy the final design onto any type of paper or card stock you choose with a colour photocopier.
Instead of using a note, send your guests a personal invite from both you and your fiancé with a save-the-date video. Usually no longer than five minutes, these videos are often made with romance or humour in mind. Although you can hire a company to help you film your video, you can make your own with just a video camera, editing equipment and some funny ideas. Ideas for funny save-the-date videos include re-creating a romantic scene from a popular romantic comedy, writing your own humorous skit or designing a mini-animated movie.
Even the most standard or traditional save-the-date card can be funny with the right wording. Examples include, "The beginning of the end is approaching," "A marriage is like a coffin...and each child is an extra nail," "Another one bites the dust," "Taking the plunge," "We'll be together FOREVER" and "See what happens when geeks marry."
