Happy Monday lovely lovely bees!
The time as come for Fiance and I to design our STD’s…
There are SO many fancy schmancy DIY STD’s out there on the blogs and magazines, as well as amazingly printed ones as well, but I want to see “real” save the dates! We’re sending out a bunch (with holiday cards), and while we want them to be fun and unique, we’re stuck on what they should look like, what information to add, and how much detail to go in to.
Any help is appreciated!
Thanks so much!

we just did ours at staples on friday, we plan to put them in our xmas cards as well and we are having a xmas themed wedding ( its a year away but more then 1/2 the guests are OOT).. we had a coupon for 100 free postcards…we were going to go a different route at wedding paper divas then what we ended up with…but honestly i wasnt passing up FREE! the 1st pic is what we originally wanted to go with
However we went with this on the front :
I dont have a pic of the finished back but it has snowflakes ( grayish like in the ones on the front) and we put this song, along with our website info
Good Luck in finding ones right for you!

Here is a photo of my save the dates. I don’t have the back on here, but it just says our names, the date, New Orleans and our wedding website. I designed them on MS word and had them printed at a digital printer.

@kimbean: staples copy & print has coupons all the time! They have design your own or you can use a template for postcards. They start at 39.99 for 100 basic color on front and gray on the back- you can add envelopes and such. I played online then when i had the design down pat i went to the store and ordered them. Here is a link to the coupon deal currently

I made mine on my computer and printed them as 4×6 photos at Costco for 8 cents each. Pretty cheap and everyone has had nice comments about them 🙂

One friend drew the illustration, and I collaborated with another friend on the concept and layout.
I was going to use a printer to print offset, but they screwed up the quote. Instead I went to Minutemen Press and had them printed digitally.

@MrsNeutrino: Yours are totally my fave – with you guys laying on the grass like that 🙂 I’ve always liked them.
