This is a super cute, easy to assemble and cost-effective save the date for all you soon-to-be-brides out there. I used some photos of my own engagement shoot, way back in 2010, taken by the super talented Charmaine Spangenberg.
This is something to have fun with while adding lots of personal touches. The sky’s the limit.

What you will need

  • scissors
  • colour printer
  • glue
  • paper stock (any colour you prefer)
  • ribbon
  • your photo

  • Step 1

    Make sure you’ve got Adobe Reader installed on your computer. I’ve created a PDF that you guys can edit with the needed information. I used “Another Typewriter“, but feel free to use whatever typeface you like. If you’ve been blessed with pretty handwriting, you should try writing it all out by hand – it will look just as stunning.
  • Step 2

    Print out the save the date on any nice paper you can find.
  • Step 3

    Score the card along the dotted lines and cut out along the solid lines, making sure you don’t forget to cut out the half circle.
  • Step 4

    Place your photo in the middle fastening it with photo corners. I used jumbo sized photos (10 x 15 cm), but anything smaller will also do.
  • Step 5

    Now all you have to do is prettify it with some ribbon, add some detail and have fun.

    Hello Susan!

    Would you be able to help me edit this save the date card? I wanted to make it a little less DIY and have a folded card in 2 instead of 3 folds and the half circle cut out.

    I appreciate all of your help!

    I love this and so does my future daughter in law but it will not let me save it to print it. Can you offer any help.

Chris and Tina’s Swiss Summer Soiree

Today we travel to a scenic spot near Ennetbürgen in Switzerland to share the late summer wedding of Chris and Tina. Against a picture-perfect backdrop of green, rolling hills, icy mountain tops and crispy blue skies, every aspect of the couple’s wedding was a vision of classic elegance. Tina looked glowing in her soft feminine gown from BHDLN and her future husband looked just as dashing whilst anticipating for his bride to float down the aisle. Simple, timeless and extremely romantic, Corina De Stefani captured their momenteous day as they celebrated it with an intimate crowd of 40 friends and family.
