i think they’re cute! one thing- i wish the black behind all the text was the same color as the darkest grey in the photo. but that’s just me. i think either way, they look awesome!

Honestly, I’m never a fan of kissing pictures on things going out to other people.  Also, I’d take your last names off – it’s a bit too formal for the STD and would make it less look busy.

I really like them.  Perhaps a black border around the picture side (or what the PP suggested) just for balance.  But, let me stress they look really good as they are. I am a tweaker, so I look for things.

If you take off the last names, would non-family recognize you or your FI when you aren’t looking forward at the camera?  I’m not a fan of kissing photos either for a STD.  I do like the black, white, and gray of the card.  It is very elegant, classy, and timeless.

I agree with the idea of changing the black background to a darker gray.  Other than that, I like them! I would keep the last names…it’s pretty unbelieveable how many save-the-dates my parents get and have to call and ask me who the couple is.

Perfect! I would consider making them postcards. I saved alot on mine by making them postcards. (cheaper printing/postage and no envelopes)

Agree with keeping the last names on…my dad’s best friend had NO idea who we were. Oops!

IMO, the black looks good…it matches the sign.

@cwedding14:  given your updates, then I would defnitely go with it! Maybe see if you can make the black background grey? or a color from your wedding w/a border? the color will still look good with the black and white photo
