Well, I think it depends on what you put on the front. If all your information is included there, then I would write just hand write a quick note, "Hope to See You There!"

We put all the information on the front, and had a pattern on the back, along with a return address and the recipient’s address.  No personal messages at all.

I agree, it depends on what you put on each side.

 

For ours, on the front of the card we just put the date, the city and state, and "A and B are getting married!"

On the back we did a logo that said "Save the date, 09.06.09" and the personal message was "We hope you can make it!"

We used recycled paper save the dates that were designed by a girl on etsy who made the color changes for me. The back had all of the vital info, including who, what, when, where and also the info for the hotel. The front had the addresses and a personalized stamp from zazzle. That was a big hit, much more money but everyone told us how cute they were. The girl that did mine even printed addresses, all I had to do was stamp and send!

On both sides have fun setting the tone of your wedding using colors, motifs and such. Then on one side put the information you need to provide with your guests: date, location, website, etc. Thinking they will pop it on the fridge all the important info will be on the side that faces out. Then on the back instead of splitting the address with a message, create a really fun space or unique way to write the guests addresses. We also have worked with a local printer to digitally print each guests name on the back of the post cards so it feels really special when it arrives in the guest mail box. I hope this helps you with your design!

Here are a few samples we have created that have examples of both a unique space to hand write the address and a version with the address digitally printed

We just ordered ours yesterday!

 The front had the typical "Save the date" and our first names with the date. The back had our full names, a message about joining us, and the names of the two hotels that we are using for guests. We have several guests coming from out of town, and want them to be able to book rooms as soon as they know they are coming. We also included "Formal invitation to follow," just in case.
