Why save the date:
Though they are generally used to announce an up coming wedding but you can also use them to announce a graduation celebration or birthday party. DIY Save the date announcements are a fun addition to your celebration stationary if you can afford the added expense. Some people think that STD's are just another way the wedding industry try to suck more money out of you and I tend to agree, but I think they are fun and if you're cautious you can keep your spending to a minimum.
They can be made to match your homemade wedding invitations or you can play around with them and make them a little more casual with an added note that the formal invitation is to follow. Incorporate a photo - perhaps of the couple in a relaxed pose, kissing or a picture of the couple holding hands and flashing that bling on her finger.
