I designed my STD on vistaprint. Something is just, off, and I can’t put my finger on it. I know you’re technically supposed to put where the wedding is being held, but I’m not going to. It will be on the invitations, and if people don’t already know, they can ask. I just want peole to not make plans for that day. Not trying to start any etiquette drama. That’s just my personal feelings. Anyway, what do I need to change? Anything?

I think they are very cute! I dont think you have to change anything… did u try a light backround color at all? might pull it all together a little more? But I think they are fine the way they are!

The only thing I see missing is the “where” city & state.
Otherwise I think they’re really cute! =)

@runsyellowlites: She said she’s not including that info. I’m not sure personally if I’m going to either.
OP- They are too cute! The only thing I will throw out there from experience is check the postage before mailing (go to the post office with it). Some bigger squares are more than standard postage.
Btw, I think it’s your spacing. I think the date should be moved down a tad, maybe your names not so offset. I think it’s because you have the long photo’s on the left and not enough on the right, so it may be a little off balance. Maybe move up and center the “formal invite to follow”. But honestly, I’m nit picking since you asked, because I think they look great.

I would add city and state as well, but they look great!

It looks very cute but you right, there is something that’s doesn’t seem right!
My Fiance designs business cards and many other things (He is a visual artist) and because I always have to hear his critic on design aspects, I can tell there is something here that doesn’t go.
I’m not sure but I think it might be the different fonts. If I place my hand over the headline, it seems to look a bit better. Think it’s the font, boldness or colour…
I don’t think the place is important for STD’s cos it’s really just a card to tell people to make sure they keep that specific date open. The only time I would consider putting the place is if it is a destination wedding..
Perhaps you should try making the “Save the Date” the same as the date below…

Only thing “missing” is city and state.
If all your guests are in town though there is no need to put it on.
Very cute design!
ETA: Wait! What about the url for your wedding website? That way when you want to you can put location and other info there, but not on your actual STD card.

Or, just move it all down a line. Start the “Save the date” so it fits in the middle of that space of that design (like the open flower pedal). This will push it all down a bit which I think will help. I realize you are working around the print design now.

Okay, I made some changes based off your suggestions. I originally wasn’t sure if I was going to do a wedding website, but I decided that would be a fun touch. So I added that information to the STD. I also changed the font of the “Save the Date!” I think this helped a lot. I realized I forgot to say that it will be a postcard, if that helps you scale it down in your head. What do you all think now?

More editing. What do you think? Better? Worse? Indifferent?

@mrstj2b: I love the last one you just posted with the lighter background! I think changing the font made a big difference.
It looks good!
