So, we’ve looked through a ton of save the dates, and this is the one we keep coming back to. Our wedding is kind of a rustic/vintage theme, so I think this fits but I would really appreciate some outside opinions. I got some reactions from family that seemed a little less than sincere, so I just want to make sure they look good.

I like that design but I’d choose a different photo (if that’s your photo and not the sample). Keep in mind that some family members may not be familiar with save the dates, so some of the objection may be because they think this is the real invitation. When I sent out postcard STD’s, a few family members were like “is this the invite? wtf?” and we had to explain that the invite would be more formal and would be sent later.

Is there a way you can add ‘Formal Invitation to Follow’ or something like that so people know an invite is on it’s way? Otherwise, I love how bright it is!

I like them…they’re simple and to the point. I like how you can still see part of the picture in “Save The Date.” Our Save the Date’s don’t even say save the date hahahaha…I feel a little silly for forgetting that part but oh well.

I like it. You may be getting family who doesn’t like them because they are trendy and not traditional.. but save the dates aren’t traditional, so who cares?!
If you love them, use them!

The colors appear washed out and the photo out of focus. I like the design and content!

The design is just amazing! Probably the best I’ve seen in a while :)<br />The only critiscism that I have is that it’s all about the design, and not about you two. If you have a similar pic, but one that shows the two of you a little clearer, that would make it just right. <br />IMHO of course!

When we were doing our STD’s, my mom pointed out that several of the photo options I had selected were ones where you couldn’t really see either of our faces (like yours). I would reccommend either changing the pic to one that shows both of your faces (except I love that photo and the vintage feel it gives) OR adding your last names to the pics…just so older people know who’s wedding they should save the date for. Obviously close friends and family will know, but will family friends and older people know exactly? But you may have just taken off the last names for when you put it on here for comments.
I think its beautiful though!
