A few months ago, I received a small cardboard tube in the mail from a crafty, to-be-wed friend in Nashville. I opened it up to find that she had printed her own save the dates on tea towels, wrapped in twine with a small hand-calligraphed tag attached. What a sweet (and useful) keepsake! Here at MHW, we love new, creative ways to make and deliver save the dates, and we'd love to hear what some of your favorites are. Here are a few tea towel save the dates we just adore:

Do you ever hear song covers that are just better than the original? Well don't tell The Knives, but Jose Gonzalez has turned their song, "Heartbeats," into a magical melody to walk down the aisle to. Gonzalez, an indie singer/songwriter from Sweden, has been winning us over with his haunting voice and acoustic guitar ever since the season two finale of The O.C. (you know exactly what we're talking about). "Heartbeats" is soft, but doesn't lack the fullness you need in the music that will accompany you on your breathtaking walk down the aisle. Be sure to check out Gonzalez' band, Junip, and you just might end up adding a few more songs to that wedding playlist.

Jamie and Jeffrey knew they wanted an intimate, no fuss wedding. So with just 10 guests in attendance and their three adorable boys, the pair tied the knot.
