I am too indecisive and need outside, unbiased eyes. Which would look best for our save the dates? A lot of options but again, that is how indecisive I am!

I like the last one the best 🙂

I like #2 because (a) I can see both of your faces, and (b) the wall behind you gives you ample plain space to insert your save the date text.

Six is my first choice, followed by two.

I voted for #2 but also love #6. You can see your faces clearly and you both look great. Since not all of your guests have met you both (i’m assuming), I think it’s best to pick a photo that focuses on both of you.
To be honest, #1 is a bit too intimate for me to use on a STD; it is a lovely photo though.
3,4 & 5 are romantic and great pictures, but you can’t really see both of your faces.

I really like #6.
Here is some advice that helped Fiance and I pick out our picture.
1. Skip the kissing pictures:
As much as YOU love those pictures, not everyone else will. Think of it like PDA- do you like seeing people randomly kiss in public? Not usually.
I really liked some of our kissing pictures, and considered using them for the save the dates. Then I thought about as though I were a guest receiving the card.
It’s like how I have a friend who puts a million kissing pictures on her facebook. All of her friends are grossed out by it. We like that they’re happy, we like that they’re in love, but we don’t want to see their kissy pictures.
Fiance was actually super adamant about not sending out any kiss pictures.
2. Find one that shows both of your faces:
As much as I like pictures 4 and 5, they don’t show your FI’s face as well. When we were selecting pictures, I tried to make sure both of us were shown, because these are going out to both families, and I don’t think that his family wants a picture of him where you can only see half his face.
3. Pick the picture that makes you and Fiance look your best:
For your pictures, I love #6. Your Fiance just looks so happy, and you seem so at peace. You just look like a nice, happy couple in that picture, and I think it makes you both look your best.

I really like the second picture because of the pretty wall in the background. But I also like #6 the brick wall is gorgeous too!

@tinylittlebird: Great advice!!! I agree that #6 is the best followed by #2 and definitely stay away from kissing pictures when sending to your guests (this goes for thank you cards too)

I love the style of 5, but you can’t see both your faces.
In #1, he’s smushing your glasses, lol.
2 would be perfect, except for your wind-blown hair — can your photographer photoshop this? If so, I would use 2.
But if not, I would definitely choose 6. It’s the only other photo that shows both your faces, and you both look GREAT, and the brick wall would be a good background for text.

I like 2 and 6 – lots of room for text, and both of your faces are visible. 🙂
