    I love #2, but would center the writing in the white box.  

    Most people advise somethin glike 6 – 8 months prior for STDs.  I sent mine out 12 months prior because my entire guest list of 160 were OOT (10+ hrs away) guests, save for about 20.

    @eecuadrado:  Not sure about when the exact best time to send the STDs out is, but I’ve recieved them any time from 12-4 months. I think around 6 months before the ceremony is when you should be sending them out, anything before that is a little excessive unless your wedding is far away. So 

    Also, I love love love option 1! It’s so perfect and cute. I don’t like option 2, the design is kind of awkward and the photo’s not as good. 

    ETA: You guys are a really cute couple, by the way.

    I like #1, but I’d add “are getting married!” after your names, and add a bullet point or some other little shape between the date and location, to break up that text.

    I like the picture in the second one a lot more, but I don’t love the white box.  Could you try a different design on that picture?
