    love it! the picture is perfect? maybe make the “save the date” part alittle darker in the same colors, unless the picture you posted shows is differently.

    I LOVE IT!  I agree with the PP, make the “Save the Date” a little darker… but otherwise, very modern and romantic and chic πŸ™‚

    I agree with pp, the STD writing needs to be darker as its very pale. The picture you’ve used is gorgeous though. So lovely.

    I like it

    I agree I would do the “Save the Date” a little bit darker & 

    the other text less dark… The black is too hard in my opinon. I’d go with a dark blue, dark green or whatever fits your color scheme.

    Is it wrong that every single time I see STD on this site I think of sexually transmitted diseases? It makes me batty.

    As for this particular STD, I think it’s a very cute photo. Nothing wrong with it.

    I really like it but I read it as “the save date” rather than “save the date”. Hm.

    @MsW-to-MrsM:  LOL. Me too! 

    To OP, I like it! Agree with PPs. Make the “Save the Date” section a little darker, so it’s easier to read. I’d also suggest moving “the.” It does look like it says “the Save Date.”

    @Skittles131:  Date Twins!

    I also read it as “the save date” b/c of the design with the “the” on the left.  Not a big deal and I’m sure people will get it/reread it correctly.  But I would be curious to see the “the” on the right (same type of format and in the same place).

    It looks great.

    @Skittles131:  the color is better πŸ™‚ maybe you could put the “the” a little behind the “save date” and put more space between the two? just a thought. the lighter font of the “the” would stand out behind the pink

    I would space out the save the date part – making the “the” behind the other two words and more like:


    save – the – date






    I hope that makes sense.

    or maybe right align the who thing?


    LOVE THE PHOTO!! fricken gorgeous!

    It’s really cute but to be perfectly honest, at first glace, every time i see it, it reminds me of a teen romance novel…i’m not sure why and i’m not sure if it’s bad thing but I had to put it out there…

    I like the “save the date” all in one line. Sorry for just jumping in! Hope that’s okay.
