What about a video, instead? I think videos can look really great without giving out a bad image or anything. Images can be a problem because peoples email filters sometimes prevent images from being seen or put the email in the spam folder. I’d put a video on Vimeo or something and send people the link!

I did online save the dates through mypunchbowl.com.  They were free (although I upgraded to the $15 member price so I wouldn’t have an add in my STD).  It lets you design an ecard and attach a message, and it also tracks when people view it so you would be able to know if anyone didn’t get it.


I don’t think it’s tacky.  If you have a budget that needs trimming, better to send an eSTD than to not let people know when the wedding is at all.

I made our save-the-date in Keynote then exported it as a high-resolution PNG file, and then hubby and me emailed it to our guests, including a link to our wedding website. Easy, simple, spent no money on postage 🙂

I did email save the dates and I regret it. Personally I wish we just did more formal real ones.

I did an e-STD and our guests loved it, and I am sooo happy that we did it!  It was through the Knot website – and the STD linked the guests to our wedding website – so it all worked out rather well.  I was also very happy to save the $$!!

I don’t think that’s tacky at all! Electronic invitations are (for weddings at least), but since you don’t really need to do save the dates, it gives you a little bit more freedom. Just make sure everyone you are sending them too knows how to use a computer.
