Good Morning, Hive!
My fiancee and I are getting ready to send out Save-The-Dates for our May 13, 2012 wedding.
I’ve always loved the magnet Save-The-Date Cards but since we probably won’t take our engagement photos for another few month or two, we don’t have a professional picture to use.
So etiquette queen bees out there: STDS – do you have to have a photo of yourself and fiancee, or can you get away with a cool design/graphic? What is the STD cure?

We didn’t have photos on ours, just the information on a really pretty card.

we did magnets and wanted our faces on so they would be something for after the wedding too. you dont HAVE to have pro pics. what about a really good picture you already have? i suggest (if you arent getting them done professionally) walmart is where i did my whole STD. the craft section has magnet sheet and you can get 4 business card sized magents from each one and walmart prints wallet size pictures. it took me like about an hour to make 100 magnets.

I skipped the photos and just sent our Save-The-Date Cards on pretty cards. I don’t think photos are absolutely necessary unless you really want them.

LOL! From the title of this post I thought it was about the other type of STD (sexually transmitted disease). Might be worth changing the title.

My bff made out Save-The-Date Cards, and just used pics of us over the years, since our epics were still a couple months out. It worked well for us. We did postcards because they were cheaper. I bought postcard backings, and we printed the STD on a 4×6 picture paper and put them together that way. It worked really well

You don’t need to wait for pics. The reality is that other than very close family, most people aren”t much interested in keeping your pic on their fridge after your wedding- some not even before.
There are lots of cute graphics out there for STD’s that don’t include a pic.
