I like it!

Small suggestions though between your name and “formal invitation to follow” maybe you should put the location of the wedding (at least city and state).

Also, I’d play with fonts. Maybe change the Save the Date to an all caps block text and reuse the block text for the wedding location. We did ours in 2 fonts and the combination of the 2 fonts looked really nice.

Finally, do you have a wedding website or are you inserting an information card for the out of town guests?

I think you should send Save-The-Date Cards to everyone you are inviting. If they are in town, they may not do anything with it, but it’s nice to have notice of upcoming events.

I think those are really cute! Are you having a destination wedding? Or will most people be in the same city as the wedding? If you only have a select amount of guests that will be traveling I’d just send the STD to them.

I really like it! I think you should send it to everyone on your list unless your budget does not permit.

Are you making these postcards or are you going to put them in an envelope?

@Gerber: Since there are out of town guests, I think location is required. Also, if you do send them to everyone, you want to make sure your in town guests know you aren’t having a destination wedding.

They look nice! I’d send them to everyone because destination or not, you’re asking these people to “save the date” as in – don’t plan for anything else, you’ve got a wedding to go to! I’d also spell it out as either 10 December 2011/10 Dec 11 or some other form because not everyone writes and reads the date the same way. I would have read it as 12 October, for instance. I’d also put some last names somewhere on it too (if there’s no wedding website) just in case. we’re doing the opposite though – last names on the Save-The-Date Cards and then no last names on our site. definitely agree with the 2 fonts too.

I like it.
The only reason I think it should be sent to everyone is because I always fear that people will think they are less important if you don’t send them one. That’s just my opinion

I personnaly like them with the City, and State. Try Vistaprint.com they have 100 postcards for free just pay shipping. I uploaded my design and only paid about $10 for 100 including shipping. (and it was only $10 because I wanted my own design you can get them cheaper if you choose one of theirs)

I really like it – the colors are great.  Agree that you should use the ones that have city and state in there.

I would send it to anyone out of town as well as anyone you know 100% you want to invite.  Though if it’s too expensive to do that, send it to out of town people and then to people like your parents, wedding party, close friends who will be super excited to receive them.
