Save the Dates are something I swore I wouldn’t waste my money on … and then ended up doing them anyway. I was against the magnet or any other sort of novelty item and wanted to keep things cheap – so we decided to do a short photo shoot with our photographer and DIY it into a postcard to send our guests!

Postcards are a fantastic money saver when it comes to Save the Dates AND RSVP cards in your invitations! They are easy to make online (we used Vistaprint!) and use significantly less postage to send!

Here’s some more Save the Date photo & postcard inspiration to kick off this week’s DIY Wednesday!

A simple STD postcard via Wedding Paper Divas

Love the paint on the brick via Bridal Buds

Omg I LOVE this postcard design! You could have fun with a DC version! (via Bride Power)

OMG this one is infinitely awesome

 Architette Studios ~ fun city skylines for your Save the Date postcard! Check out their DC one (they have Baltimore & a ton more cities in their Etsy shop too!)

This one is hilarious (and they have more here)
