Have you set your wedding date? Once you make it official, it’s time to share the exciting news with your loved ones in the form of a save the date. If you’re an avid wedding magazine subscriber or wedding blog enthusiast, you have most likely viewed some clever (read: complicated) save the date ideas. While lovely, we understand 100+ save the date gifts for guests may not be the most realistic idea in the real wedding planning world. So, today, we’re here to show you how to simplify your save the date – without stripping it of handmade personal style… and, it’s easier than you may think!

To simplify your save the dates, we recommend one of our favorite go-to ideas: the handmade save the date postcard. Don’t worry, you don’t have to figure out how to create a postcard on your computer; instead, hire a professional artisan to help! A postcard save the date can tie in your engagement photograph and incorporate your pertinent wedding day details in a short, sweet, and sentimental way. To bring a little handmade inspiration your way, we’ve gathered up a few of our favorites from a lovely shop known as Nostalgic Imprints which offers some of the sweetest vintage save the date postcards we’ve ever seen. Just submit a photograph + your wedding date to the folks at Nostalgic Imprints and they will create a one-of-a-kind vintage-inspired save the date postcard suitable for framing!

A handmade save the date postcard requires only four steps: just order, address, stamp, and send. What could be easier? We love the personal touch of hand-written addresses, but to save even more time you could type the addresses in a word processor, print onto clear labels, affix, stamp, and send. Nice + easy, with no writer’s cramp.
