5 Save-The-Dates That Are Creative AF

The Save-The-Date Card. To be honest, I think that designing this card is probably the easiest part of the wedding planning process—especially when compared to choosing your date and venue. Sure, you can go as simple as taking your engagement photo and sending it out…OR you can take it one step further and add a fun twist. Of course, if you know me, I’d choose the latter.  To get your ideas flowing, I’ve gathered a few of my favorite out-of-the-box Save The Date ideas that are #CreativeAF.

Vintage Postcard

This postcard is near and dear to my heart because it’s a card I designed for one of my very best friends. She was going for a vintage look, and knew she wanted to go the postcard route. We used a photo that her brother, (Max Holiver Photography) took of Boston Commons--the very place they got engaged. Thanks to Photoshop, I distressed the photo, and designed the back of the card to mimic a postcard with their wedding date details.
