paper chase: sporty save-the-date ideas

As we approach the second most popular date for couples to get engaged (Christmas Eve is first), I'm thinking about all of the anticipation that charactertized that season in my life and the excitement of finding a venue and setting a date.  While we decided not to send Save the Dates (our guests were primarily local and we sent invitations in advance), they are a fantastic way to add some character to wedding correspondence.  While traditional Save the Dates abound, complete with florals, calligraphy, and gold foil, I love it when couples have some fun with this first "peek" at what the tone of the wedding will be like.  Today, I've rounded up a few Save the Date ideas perfect for couples who are athletes and sports fans.

This race bib save the date would be perfect for a couple who does 5Ks or marathons together, or who met in a running club.  I love the way the date stands out!

This ticket-inspired invitation is perfect for a couple who are major fans of the same team, and a great way to incorporate an engagement photo.

While definitely a more expensive option, this golf tee invitation is absolutely memorable and a great tip of the cap to a couple's favorite shared hobby or a country club wedding venue.

These pennant banner Save the Dates from Super Runaway are my favorites of the bunch - a fantastic way to incorporate the wedding's color scheme and have fun with typography and vintage-inspired design.

Which of these Save the Date ideas is your favorite?
