    I love the stripes. Very soft and elegant.

    I voted horizontal, but then realized that you said “timeless” and I think the horizontal is a little more modern.

    However, in my defense, you may look back and think the vertical is a little dated, and the modern one is actually more timeless. Please please please if you do the date that large either let the date run off the edges or center it more. The teeny tiny margin is grating. Haha, sorry…designer.

    more ppl will get the vertical one confused and think it’s an invitation.  that will annoy you.

    crackktheskyy:  Gotcha! We had a little more fun with the save the date, but I personally like the contrast of the horizontal save the date with a traditional, vertical invite!

    Also, I love your hedgehog 🙂

    crackktheskyy:  Yes, I just prefer the over all styling. I find it a lot softer. The one with the large numbers is a touch distracting. *my humble opinion*

    crackktheskyy:  yes.  ppl often think that already with horizontal save the dates (even if they say formal invitation to follow).  since traditional/classic wedding invites are often vertical, even more ppl will think they’re invites if you make your save the dates vertical.  I even thought the vertical pic was an invite (it looks like one imo). it’s hard to tell it’s a save the date when the date isn’t front & center & the date is written out like they tend to be on wedding invitations.

    that said, I’m not sure that it matters all that much if you don’t care about that.

    I feel your pain. I have gone back and forth so many times! Either or is a great choice.

    crackktheskyy:  I love that inspiration – we were planning on keeping the font consistent, but what worked for the save the date ended up being a little too informal for the invite. But we’re doing a similar color scheme, I love the gold.

    And envelope liners take everything to a new level! You could even make each a little more unique by getting some gold patterns and interchanging them.

    Shkragoldfish:  I voted vertical, but that is a great point! i’d say save the horizontal one for the invite because it does kind of remind memore of an invitation than an STD.
