Not everyone can plan their own wedding and create the decor. However, with a little help you can surely make your own save the dates. Personally, I think the save the dates should be simple and affordable. If you want to go nuts than save it for the invites. Being that its just a little reminder of what’s to come, it doesn’t have to be grand. Check out what I did for mine and hopefully they will inspire you!

I chose to create postcards for a few reasons. First of all, they are very affordable and easy to get printed. Second, our wedding theme is vintage bohemian so what better way to remind our guests of our special day than with a vintage postcard design.

I chose to use one of my favorite photos from our engagement shoot with Lauren Elle and just create a small banner that matched the style of the photo. For the back I used a vintage texture and included fonts that held that antique style. Since we have a wedding blog I included that as well.

I received a lot of positive feedback about them which made me happy. Especially, since I designed them. I say DIY all the way. If you can do a lot of the work and it will save you money than go for it.
