Hey y'all...

I'm supposed to be paying attention in my teacher professional development, but instead I'm playing with our save the date cards...

We're doing simple postcards. Vistaprint.com prints them for free - you just pay the shipping and handling! Woo!

This is the front. The back will have a little message, the location, the website, etc...

Is this too simple? (The black blurbs are our last names!)

They are very simple, but I like them. If they fit with the theme/color scheme/attitude of your wedding, I say go for it. They're very cute  Cheesy

They do look cute, and effective!

If you want some variety in the photographs you could hold the 'save' on your own, hubby-to-be hold the 'the' on his own, and you both hold the date, (like you already have) maybe?

I like 'em I think they're cute! You could even leave off the last names & it'd still look good! Great job!

My opinion:
they are cute, as are your outfits.
however, for MORE cuteness, if it were me, i would:
change the photos up a little.  for the date one, you guys should smooch while holding the card.  people want to see smooches!
I'd have photo one with you holding the card, while he looks adoringly at you,
reverse the situation for #2 and then for three, both hold "date" and smackaroo!
good luck!

Can you have the last names either both left justified or both centered?  (Things like that make me bonkers...sorry!)

I also agree on changing up the pics a little.  At first glance, until I read in a post that they (um, you) were holding the three different signs, I sort of thought it was the same picture just put in as a place holder until you could change 'em out. 

I love the idea and the colors with your outfits!  Great cards!

The problem with different shots is that we had these done with the photographer. I guess we could get a friend to reshoot them... Hmm..

Here is my take two to make it more interesting!

I agree that #2 is MUCH better!  Having one different picture on there makes a huge difference and I really like only having your first names.

Yeah. I like the 2nd one better too. My fiance put his $0.02 and said I should change it to the wedding colors rather than colors to match our outfits... So here is the final product. 100 postcards only cost me $11.48 - and that's WITH shipping!



Thanks for your help!!
