    Are you using black or neutrals in your wedding color scheme at all??

    I prefer the one with the black border, but the champagne might be more wedding-y.

    And not to be a downer or anything, but if that’s not your original photograph I think that might be a big copyright violation. I work for a company that makes a lot of magnets (amongs other things) and if we find out that the customer doesn’t “own” the photograph we are not allowed to print it.

    I think #3 looks the cleanest and most elegant out of all of them. The words seem to pop out more with the black backdrop. #2 is a bit harder to read bc of the color font slightly blending with the background of the pic.

    I think they look kind of amateurish. Also, I would be worried about copyright.

    a lot of people wait until 6months out to send save the dates, it may be best and more like what you wanted just to wait for the engagement photos

    Option 3. The black makes everything pop, ties in with the shadows on the picture, and doesn’t take away from it or confuse the eye like Option 2 does. I don’t think they look amateurish, but do be careful of that copyright violation the other bees warned you about. Maybe consider taking your own picture and using it?

    @cwat12:   We sent ours about ten months in advance because we have lots of out of town guests, so I think it’s ok to send it earlier.

    ETA: I wouldn’t worry about copyright since you’re using the photo for personal use, not to make money.

    I like the third, but I think you should extend the picture to the edges of the page on either side– so that the black border is just a band on the top and bottom. 

    I’d also look into a different font– it looks a little too comic sans-y to me.
