Wedding DIY: Save The Dates

As we’re planning this whole wedding thing, I love seeing how traditions change over time. Save The Dates are really trending towards e-versions right now for obvious reasons. Whether it’s a simple email to your guests, a built in guest list manager and RSVP dashboard on sites like The Knot, or stand alone messaging websites (I like these, branded as “green” options).
So, gotta be honest here, Save The Dates ranked pretty low on the Wedding Budget (don’t worry, the invitations have a better budget and we’ve already selected our kickass designer and what we want). That was the main reason we went with a largely email-based Save The Date. And I knew I could whip up something quick in Photoshop and we’d email it when it was time.
We ended up sending about 85 Save The Date emails on Sunday, our 6-Month-Until-The-Wedding date. We did print out about 20 paper copies for folks without email and our immediate family members (parents, grandparents, siblings).
We went to Staples a month or so ago and picked up these Avery Textured Printable Note Cards. They were super easy to print on, came with envelopes, and the textured card was a nice style element.

Just a little something I whipped up in Photoshop. It translated well on paper and in an email, I think.

Peekaboo!

Finished stack that we dropped in the mailbox last Thursday (and then giddily skipped home, hand in hand *PUKE*).
