It makes you feel so good when little things you do get noticed. I love the photo you used. It looks so relaxing and if I was one of your guests, I would definitely be looking forward to your wedding!

People LOVED our save-the-dates.  I thought it was a good idea, but not THAT good haha.  We did postcards like you:

We did the same thing and get compliments all the time.  One of the guys we sent it to thought it was the actual invitation.  Silly boy. 

Isn’t it great when something so cheap and simple reaps such big rewards?!

We had a friend who is a graphic designer make our Save-The-Date Cards and he made these awesome silhouettes of us which we’ve incorporated all over the wedding – pinback buttons, a big rubber stamp for our return address, etc., etc. and people go crazy over them! People at my office even wear a pin with my face on it! A small detail, but one of my favorites.

Yeah, I think we compare our weddings to the crazy amazing ones that get featured in blogs, whereas non married/engaged folk tend to compare it to what they’ve seen in the past, or may have nothing to compare it to at all! I have to remind myself of this sometimes.

monitajb, your Save-The-Date Cards look great, and so do the other bees’!

I think you hit the nail on the head — we spend a lot of time looking at the AMAZING stuff people do for their weddings, so we have very high standards as a result. I recently sent my mother a picture of the mock-ups for our invitations — just printed out on normal paper, the inks weren’t perfect, nothing was stuck down, etc, and she was over the moon with how good she thought they looked — whereas I was being hypercritical of the tiny details that weren’t quite right.

I think it’s great that your Save-The-Date Cards gave the guests and idea of the CA they’d see.

 @SweetAdeline, love those silhouettes.
