I fell in love with the STD when I was surfing the internet:
I am not a fan of sending out pictures of my Fiance and I, I think other STD’s area little boring, and this seemed cute and fun!
However, my mom had a really strong reaction. She told me she thinks it’s childish and she refuses to send it out before the wedding. She would not describe STD invitations as “cute” and “sweet” and she thinks if I insist on being informal I should use the typical flower/branch/tree motif.
I acknowledge that sometimes I can be a little tastless, but is this THAT bad???
Thanks for ya’ll’s advice in advance!!

I think it’s cute! STDs can be whatever you want them to be! I think they’d really get attention.

you should add a poll to this
sorry but im with mom, i dont like it. its a bit too cheesy for my tastes and i dont like the lack of information (doesnt even say you are getting married-just save a date and i know this will confuse some of my friends who are not my moms age)

Honestly, I find it a bit childish. I think there are a lot of “cute” and “sweet” designs out there that seem a little more…well, what I would pick. BUT, this is your wedding and if you love them, who CARES what anybody else things?

@eloping: Thanks for the advice, will add a poll. It’s a postcard, so on the back we would put our names, our wedding website, the fact that it’s a wedding etc… It’s not just..that. 🙂

I’m not a fan. It looks more like a child’s birthday party invitation than a wedding STD to me.

i think it’s fine if your STD is a little less formal and more fun than your invitations. the important thing is that it is a representation of you as a couple. i say if you and your Fiance like it, go for it.

Ah, it’s not a very good drawing. Would you consider putting it in an inspiration folder on your computer and looking around more for some similar subject matter? I’m going to be harsh but honest – I wouldn’t send that out for a kid’s birthday party.

I’ll be honest – I’m with your mom. It feels very childish to me. Sorry.
There are ways to be more informal and to not involve photos of you and your Fiance that are better than that – I’d keep looking!

Yeah, I’m with your mom. It’s a little cutesy/childish, IMO.
