Fun, Easy Save-the-Dates

As you might recall from my earlier engagement photo post, Stephen and I decided to take the DIY route, saving time and money by letting my talented sister take a few fun snapshots this spring. To keep the savings coming with our save-the-date cards, we turned to Shutterfly, which offers a good variety of classic and contemporary templates to choose from.

Once we decided on a design, we were able to test different photos, select the one we wanted, and then enter our own text. After submitting the order, Shutterfly printed the cards and sent them to us in less than a week.



The result? A fun yet polished save-the-date for only $0.65 per card, with zero stress for the two of us! If you like this idea, check out the options at Shutterfly or another photo website you like. We loved the cards, and so did our guests.

What are your plans for save-the-dates? If you’ve already sent them out, what style did you go with?

  1. Those are really cute! And the price is great! We did e-save the dates for those who are living far away and need extra time to make travel plans

  2. Those look great and you can't beat that price. :) I designed the save the dates for our at-home reception and had them made into magnets via Vistaprint. The price was reasonable so I can't complain. Which reminds me...I should probably get those sent out.

    Great blog!

  3. Those look great! I initially wanted to use one of our e-pics on our Save-the-Dates, but the fiance nixed the idea. Yours are so cute, though, it makes me wish we had done something similar :) Oh well, sometimes you need to pick your battles!

  4. Like Party Planner, my fiance didn't want our e-pics on the STD's...he didn't even like the idea of STD's...but oh well, I always win in the end! So ours went out pretty much as I created them. But I love yours. I use Shutterfly for so very much and will most likely get our wedding Thank You cards from their with some wedding pics after the big event!
