    Mwenje:  Is the location blacked out?  If you are sending save the dates, people usually like a heads up as to the city in which the wedding will be held.

    I would also put “invitation” singular, to follow.

    Mwenje:  I love the flowers in the background!  I always tend to prefer DIY save the dates over the mass produced versions. As julies1949 noted above, you should make “invitation” singular.  In addition, you should make the ellipsis only three dots (i.e. “Invitation to follow…” if you want to include it).  I think simply saying, “Invitation to follow” is acceptable as well.

    If you have many people traveling, you may also want to consider including your wedding website information.

    Looks good though! 🙂

    Mwenje:  It’s a nice photo, but I personally am a fan of save the dates that have a picture of the couple on them. A save the date with a picture of the couple is one I’d tape to my fridge, whereas one that doesn’t I’d probably just put away somewhere and may forget about it. 

    Also, do you have a website for your wedding? If you do, you could add that somewhere, probably after the location. 

    Overall I think it looks nice 🙂

    I agree with the person above, although the flower photo looks really nice, have a photo of you and your fiancé on them 🙂

    Agree that if you’re putting a picture, it should be of the couple, not a random bouquet of flowers. Also, you should remove the ellipses after “invitation to follow…”

    I hate to be the one to bring this up, but technically it isn’t a “wedding” if you are already married and have exchanged vows. I would call it a “celebration”, “vow renewal”, or something else. Also I’m not a fan of the white background/white text on the bottom. It’s not too easy on the eyes.

    I like that the bouquet and vows are personally yours. I like it.

    Mwenje:  oh makes sense! Scratch what I said about the randomness then, lol. Perhaps consider making a space on the right side where your text will go, a little transparent and then change the font colour to a darker colour?
