@Almost Mrs.P:  So…. I played around with it because I love designing things and made like a million different versions of my SaveTheDates before settling on one, so I was going through design withdrawal!  Just an idea:

Since your website has a password, I like the idea of putting the wedding website address and password either on the back of the STD or maybe even on a separate little business card to tuck in the envelope? I know that means extra expense.. I just kind of like the look without the address/password on the front. 

Just my two cents! 🙂

 

ETA: The fonts that I used are Pea Mily Mix, Riesling, and Perpetua Titling MT.

Have you tried using different size fonts? (hierarchy: Save the Date, your names and the date/location, and website the smallest – preferably in a different color). It helps draw the eye to the most important features first

 

Also, my general rule is that sans serif (Arial) is for computer reading and serif (Times New Roman) is for reading off of paper. My favorite serif is Bell MT, but if your wedding is a bit more casual sans serif is the way to go – maybe Myriad?

 

Love the colors, they’re very classy!

@E_Lynne615:  Oh, I like this version alot better. I would just center the heart and thier names a bit more within the state.

@HeMadeMeWantTo:  I think the heart is there because that is where Rochester, NY is located.

This version might be a little cleaner.

@Almost Mrs.P:  I think that will look fabulous! You’re right, there are SO many ways to play around with it all, it just about drove me crazy and I just finally had to make a clutch decision and just order them!! In the long run, I doubt anybody will say “Oh she should have done XYZ with her savethedates.. and if they do, then they are just dumb! 🙂  They’ll look great!

@Almost Mrs.P:  You can disagree but please know that there are general rules for proessional designers.. I was stating them as my profession is partially graphic design and I deal with fonts constantly
