I just found this site, and thought I would share. You can design your own save the date or invitation, and send them to your guests via email. It also lets you track your guests replies. Unfortunately the service isn’t free but it is a much cheaper alternative if you are on a tight budget. Hope this helps someone!

I love it. I wish all my guest list were tech savvy enough for me and FH to go this route. Alas, we are old fashioned folk and are biting our way through DIY invites instead.

You should try vistaprint.com. They have a good amount of options and it isn’t that expensive – only about $50.

One of our friends went this way with ALL of her wedding correspondence. She wanted to have a green wedding, and so sending out tons of paper in the mail that was likely to just get thrown out afterwards wasn’t in her idea of a perfect wedding. I’m not sure how she dealt with older guests who didn’t have email, but I thought the paperless invites were a nice touch for a green wedding 🙂

We might do our save-the-dates this way, but I REALLY wish they let you customize more. Their design layout is pretty inflexible, and it’s a $40 charge to upload your own file, which seems pretty ridiculous to me.

I’m designing invitations & other DIY’s for my friends. We just sent out their e-STD’s via email using Mail Chimp and it totally ROCKS!!! It’s easy, fun and FREE!!! (You can pay for some services, but we won’t need to.) I designed a save the date image with a pic of them and their logo and then below the image we added more infor and asked them to reply with addresses, etc.
We’re having fun keeping track of how many emails have been opened… how many have clicked to the wedding website…WHO has opened the emails!!! It’s da best!!! I discovered it thanks to this blog: PinkArgyle.
