I created my 'Save the Date' cards for my upcoming wedding a little while ago; unfortunately, it was a rushed job which consisted of a photograph and standard font printed on postcards with some red, white, and blue stars. (I do not have a Fourth of July theme, but the wedding will be taking place in the summer.)
Due to other commitments and life in general, I didn't have a lot of time to design something perfect and get it sent out by my deadline. Irregardless, my family and friends were complimentary about them. (The perfectionist in me was far more critical.)
I have recently come across some inspirational designs for 'Save the Date' cards that I wish I had discovered a few months ago, when I quickly put my 'Save the Date' postcards together. I really love these, and a lot of them are so simple, yet convey so much emotion.
To add to this topic, singer Lily Allen's 'Save the Date' cards for her June 11th wedding were leaked to the press, and the postcard conveys a country theme with her and her husband-to-be's heads superimposed on an old photograph.
