Creative DIY Save the Date

You may remember the modern chevron designed wedding invitation that I posted previously.  Well when I saw the Save the Date that had been sent for the same wedding, I thought it was such a darling idea I asked the bride if I could post it.

She was more than happy to share.

Taylor, the bride, found an old window pane and lettered “Save The Date” in the top three panes.  This can be done with either a chalk marker or acrylic paint.  She used the bottom three windows to put the numerical date.  The numbers are cut out and backed with newspaper to go along with the rustic feel.

They found a great weathered red barn as a backdrop.  A picture was snapped.  They selected a casual font (available where they had the pictures printed) and then used the 4″ x 6″ pics as the actual Save the Date.  Though they used white envelopes, another option would be to use red, blue or spring green.  Then use a gel pen in a contrasting color to address them.

This is a great example of a creative invitation that is economical too!

Way to go Taylor!  And Happy Wedding to you, Jacob and your families.
