Save the Date Invite Design

For my Save The Date invitations, I knew I wanted to do something unique.  I used a few skills in photoshop to create a funny and personal Save the Date magnet to send to guests!

It was a sunny day in West Chester, PA so my fiancee and I got dressed and charged our $100 Kodak camera.  My little sister took pictures of us being silly in my parent’s backyard.  This was one of my favorite pictures and I thought I could manipulate the image fairly easily:

In Photoshop, I cut-out our bodies from the rest of the picture and background.

Cute! Now it’s time to design the invites. I wasn’t sure what colors I wanted to use for my wedding so I just went with colors that I love…muted teal and purple.

I used layering in Photoshop to input the “hanging off a tree image” onto the off-white box/block.

Once I was happy with the final design, I ordered the oversized magnets from  They looked great printed and were a great deal (75 Save the Date invites cost me less than $100 TOTAL)!

  1. Wow they look great! Great idea and a huge money saver too! I’m always planning my non-existent-I’m-not-even-engaged-yet wedding in my head and will have to keep homemade save the date cards in mind!
