Monica and I are currently working with a client, Mary in the Washington, DC area. She is recently engaged and in the beginning planning stages for her June 2010 nuptials. Naturally, one of the first things on her to do list was to announce her engagement and start thinking about sending save the date cards. After I reviewed her list I realized that many people may not be aware of pingg.com. It is another great green wedding resource which brides might not think to use. I used them to announce my own engagement back in September 2008 and I highly recommend them. They have a beautiful wedding section with famous designers contributing to their designs. In addition, many of the designs are free or available for a small fee of $10. You can even customize and put your own photo in the card! Your tree free save the date is then sent out as an email to your guests. Although I would not recommend this for your wedding invitations it is a great, inexpensive and eco-chic way to communicate with your guests. Once again, going green saves green!
Just look how gorgeous the free ones are.
These ones are available for $10:
