We got ours at Zazzle.com. Our Save-the-Dates will not match the invites since we used pictures from our engagement photo session.

I made postcards at Office Depot…They don’t match my invites perfectly but the colors are similar and they came out really nice. I’m big on DIY because I’m not big on $$$…good luck!

I got mine from Jeanm.com..you may need to link to their website from their facebook page for the deal..but the deal is 100 FREE save the dates (there are about 8 cute designs to choose from) plus shipping= $12… they came out great and a great deal! I will be getting my invites from vista print, they are no frills but still very nice, but very inexpensive and I don’t have to mess with diying them. Vista will send you a free sampling of their invites and save the dates..very nice!

I say get creative with your save the dates! They don’t have to match the color, season, or even style of your wedding. I’m having a formal summer wedding in sage and ivory colors, and my STD was a postcard in very fall-like colors of purple and green. We used a pic from our engagement session and I photoshoped the image to make it look like the cover of a local bridal magazine that fellow DC brides love. See below!

We used MagnetStreet as well. I just ordered them the other day. They don’t “match” my invitations, but they are the same color scheme, so it’s a bit coordinated.

@ Ms Caniche- I just ordered my STD’s last week and I used the same template with different colors!

We got our save the dates from http://www.savethedatemagnet.com/ and they were great!  We actually got someone else’s shipped to us first, but we called and they had the correct ones overnighted, free of charge.  I’d recomend them, oh…and our invitations are not going to match, they’ll be more formal.

We went the DIY route, and printed a cute photo that went inside Christmas cards.  the photos were printed at Walmart, and we bought the cards there too, so I guess you could say our STDs are from Walmart 😛

Simple, but fun!  They don’t really match our invites, which are a custom design featuring an illustration of the two of us, and lots and lots of butterflies.

Mine are from Vista Print.  I had  so much fun designing them!

They will not match my invitations in color or theme, which I haven’t decided on yet.  There are so many fun colors and ideas out there it seemed absurd to limit myself to a “brand.”  I read a serious article in a wedding magazine about “branding” your wedding and how you have to market your event as if you were a corporation with an eye to the target audience, competition, etc.  Apparently you need to have a logo as well as a color and theme and start with the save the dates…

Where is the fun in that??
