Our Save the Dates


In the spirit of Friday, I thought I’d share a little DIY wedding project I did last Fall, before Master’s thesis-writing and the craziness of graduation began – our Save the Dates!

I loved the idea of sending our closest family and friends luggage tags since we’re getting married in Italy so I scoured Pinterest and Etsy until I found this one that had the exact rustic look I was going for. I absolutely adored it but saw a few things that I wanted to add – like the actual date of our wedding and a spot for traveler info on the back – so I took it upon myself to recreate them.



I designed them using Photoshop, ordered some lace and cute hole reinforcements and printed them on a thick, brown paper from a local craft store. The hubs-to-be even got in on the action once assembly began – he was tasked with punching holes and placing the stickers at the top of each Save the Date.

To finish them off and add a little international wedding flare, I wrapped each luggage tag in decorative world map paper.


They were a big hit among our friends family – I hope some will actually use them on their luggage when they fly to Italy! I love any and all DIY projects but given all that we have going on this spring, I think I’ll be ordering the actual invitations online.
