I actually had made my save the dates all from the store Michael’s.

I too am going for the fall theme so I bought some clear fall-themed like stamps, neutral card stock paper and some brown/black sharpies. Just wrote a little note to wish my future guests a happy valentine’s day as well as a save the date. Everything was hand written and done by hand. I’ve gotten some great response from it thus far.

 

If you have some sort of idea you should definitely play off of it and do it yourself. its very possible.

Mine were based on the Casablanca movie poster. We did it ourselves in Photoshop, maybe customization is the way for you to go to as well?

I would check on etsy.com. We had ours designed there–we did a custom map of nyc, with different spots and attractions on it that are meaningful to us.

We ordered Scractch off Save the dates from Etsy seller unlesssomeonelikeyou.  They were fun and unique, we had our date/city under the scratch off sticker so the Save-The-Date Cards were interactive!  We got many compliments on them!

I will post a link to one of her postings of the specific design we chose, but she has a few different designs.  You could have her change the hearts and/or stars to leaves to make it more fallish or you could just switch up the colors!?

Ahhh @mizrunzou, we saw those too and LOVED them. We ultimately went with different ones, but I think the scratch off idea is so cute and original. I would love to get a save the save the date like that ๐Ÿ™‚

@hilsy – – Thanks!  Our guest enjoyed them…although, a few called Fiance to ask if they WON a trip to our city…haha.

I LOVE ETSY!  I’ve ended up getting my invites, Save-The-Date Cards, and jewelry from there so far!

I did a Ribbon STD inspired by Martha Stewart and I have gotten a lot of compliments on them (they only went out 2 weeks ago).

I almost did 3D ones, but nixed the idea after my sis blew our cover. I have a great idea for them but since they’re not done yet, I don’t want to share out loud. PM me if you want to know ๐Ÿ™‚

For anyone else curious, I’ll probably be posting them on my blog in about a week. Woo!

Other random ideas that we almost used but didn’t: Pop-up cards, Stickers to mark the date on the calendar, sending small calendars with the date circled, video STD, and spinning-wheel STD (was in the Destination Weddings Martha magazine).

Good luck!

Here are ours!  I just designed a simple card and printed it on my Gocco – though they could have been printed on a regular printer too.  I spent hours glueing and tying the ribbons to play up the “tying the knot” theme.

@Magenta – I love your Save the Dates!
