Once your wedding date is in the books, and your invitations have been printed, you will want to think of creative and effective ways to remind people of your special date. Don't give anyone a reason to say they can't make it to your wedding because "I didn't know it was that day! (insert silly excuse here)." Learn how to make your own save the date cards so that no one will be uninformed about your wedding date.
There are numerous computer programs available on the web now where you can create your own creative save the date cards.
Be ready to get out the cardstock paper, the paper cutter, and your color printer to make your own save the date cards. This process may not be easy, but it is the way to go if you want to make your own save the date cards that are 100% customized for guests.
Buy them a Calendar with the Date Marked
An innovative idea you can use to make your own save the date cards is to transform them into calendar cards. These save the date cards can be the size of a regular calandar, about 11x17, or half that size.
Mark the month and year of your wedding date on the top in large letters, and decorate the inside of the date box for your specific wedding date. Do whatever you need to do to highlight the date, even with a 3D popout, or a button that your guests can press and be told by a recorded voice why that date can't be forgotten.
Higher Quality Save the Date Cards
If you aren't much of a designer, you may want to leave that part to the professionals. You may decide that the quality of printing your save the date cards on regular cardstock paper is inferior. Plus, you have to cut them to size, so the save the date cards might not be straight-that method can get a little complicated.
Once the RSVPs start pouring in, you will see the value of giving your guests save the date cards. You can either send the special save the date cards with your invites, or in a separate mailing a few weeks later. Make your own save the date cards that are custom and innovative to avoid having them mixed into your potential guests' junk mail pile.
