Please don’t call them STDs (We’re Talking Save the Dates)

The first time I came across a post about “STDs” on a wedding board I was horrified.  What are they talking about? Why is this here? So many questions…  Thankfully my questions were answered when curiosity got the best of me, and clicked the link.  Apparently “STD” is a commonly used acronym for “Save The Date.” Hmmm. Let’s just say I won’t be using that acronym here, or anywhere for that matter.

Anyway, on the subject of Save the Dates, I’ve been starting to think  a bit about ours. Our wedding is still more than a year away, but since most of our friends and family are a plane ride away, we want to give everyone as much notice as possible.

We’re looking for something that’s clean, simple, modern and fun.  It seems like most people use engagement photos in one way or another for their save the dates, but we won’t be taking ours until later this summer, so that won’t work. The magnet idea is fun too, but it seems over played. And does anyone really want to stare at the magnet on their fridge for the next 422 days?

With that being said, I headed straight to Etsy (thanks to some suggestions from Kristy Meinhardt from Meinhardt Events), and found some great options.

Here are our favorites so far (which we’d customize to our own color scheme):

Modern Save The Date Card from Simplicity Papers

Summer Twilight Save the Date from Creative Start Design

Let me know what you think in the comments.  What did you do for your Save the Dates? (Just please don’t call them STDs!!!)

  1. Wedding Paper divas ( was great. I fully recommend their products, customer service and prices — wedding expenses add up fast! Good luck!

    • Thanks! They sure do! I was actually looking at that site the other day and thought I recognized your invites. Yellow and gray with flowers, right? So cute.
