DIY Save the Date Cards

Making my own save-the-date cards and wedding invitations is something I always knew I’d be rolling up my sleeves for. I’ll probably end up typing the real things since my calligraphy can get a little sloppy…and by the time I’ve done 50 of them, I might have carpal tunnel. I’m still trying to figure out the colors too. I never thought picking colors would be so complicated or that there were so many rules involved with this stuff.

What I do know is that I’m pretty sure the bridesmaids will be wearing floor length navy blue dresses for our November 2012 wedding. And maybe they’ll have red-colored flowers? I actually really like red mums. Anyways…I’m still brainstorming but felt that I needed to do a practice session of DIY Save the Date card-making. I think I’ll do a few different styles until I figure out the right look, then get my card stock stacks and trimmer ready for mass production of them. At least save-the-dates don’t need to be mailed until 6 months before the wedding! I have time to figure it out. Hope this practice card take # 1 looks ok!

  1. How did you make this? what materials? This is really cute! What is the piece that holds the bow down? sorry for all the questions.

    • Hi Jaclyn, sorry for the delay! I’ve been busy with wedding plans! But I will post a tutorial on this. The piece holding down the bow is called a brad. You can find brads for about $1-2 for a pack of 50 at most craft stores. The bow is actually made of cardstock paper!
