The hard part — selecting a wedding date — is over, now it's time to get creative on your wedding save-the-date cards. With the popularity of smartphone photo apps, there are dozens of ways to share your "I do" plans in a style all your own. Or try a wallet-sized card to keep your date top of mind for guests. However you want to share the big news, opt for one of these quirky, frame-ready styles.
- Moo.com — Moo's line of pint-sized business cards, MiniCards, is one of the most affordable options we've found for printing save the dates. Measuring just less than three inches by one inch, these cards cost $20 for a set of 100 and give you the option of total photo and text customization or the use of Moo's own save the date template.
- Postagram — All the steps of making a save the date in one app. Seriously. Choose a photo from your Instagram collection, add the important wedding details, include recipients with their snail mail addresses, and Postagram does the rest. Each photo postcard is $1.
- PopBooth — The same idea as Postagram — choose photos, recipients, and send — except these are in a photo-booth layout with a pop of bright pink. Each mailed PopBooth photo-strip postcard is $2.
- Sticky9 — Turn a single Instagram photo into a save the date that'll be chic and informative on a guest's refrigerator with Sticky9. At $15 for a pack of nine magnets, this option is best for a smaller wedding.
- DIY Photo Strips — Want to go the DIY route? Get creative by including the wedding details in several Instagram photos (think handmade signs, chalkboards, or added text), and make your own combination of photo-booth-style strips to send to guests, thanks to CNET's tips.
