Hey! I made a mockup of what I want my Save-the-dates to look like in Photoshop! I’ve attached two images. The only difference between the two is the background color.
It’s going to printed on either white or ivory cardstock, then be glued onto a bigger piece of purple cardstock. What do you think?
I have a few doubts about it. I want it to be simple, but is this TOO simple? Also, do you like the fonts?
(Background: the story of how we met is a long one, but basically, I ran up to a perfect stranger, asked him if he was friendly. He said he was and I asked for a hug. He gave me an INCREDIBLE hug so I had to tell him. He followed me around for the rest of the night and 5 years later, I’m making our Save-the-dates!!)

I like the relationship landmarks but why don’t you include the date they happened?

Not a fan of the dates. And I prefer the pale lilac background. They’re sweet!
ETA: the first one looks lilac to me on my screen, but I’m guessing it must be the white one. I still prefer white to ivory/cream 🙂

I like the dates, but I think maybe make them a couple sizes smaller and drop them down a line so it doesn’t look so awkward.

Sorry for so many different options! What about this STD with less words:

@allegrovivo: That one is ok as well, but from a design standpoint, I don’t like how everything isn’t lined up the same. It either all needs to have some sort of center line where the left or right side bumps up to it, or keep it all centered.

I would use the one with dates, but put the date in a smaller font above the “first met” line.

I like the dates, but I think you should consider how it looks if you take out the “they’re getting married part”….since it tells a story…and the bottom is sort of the ending where it announces when and where you will be wed.
Just a thought.

@allegrovivo: I think I like the 2nd one with fewer words. I like the first one, but I think I got thrown off at the “they cried” part. While I totally get what you were going for, not sure if its the right feeling for a STD (such a sad event, where you were crying).
But I really love the simpler wording – its SUPER sweet. I would probably change the bottom to:

Since you mentioned above already that you are getting married, you wouldn’t need to restate below. Otherwise, i really like it!

I love the last one you posted

I think I personally now prefer the one with less words. I see what you guys meant about stating that we’re getting married twice so I cut that out.
