Save-The-Date Cards are not a thing in my culture but for what I’ve seen in the hive most brides include the city where the weddings going to take place. Not sure though.

FYI: Love the picture

I love the concept. I’m doing something similar but with red. The only thing I would recommend is making the picture bigger and the left side smaller so the background doesn’t draw so much attention. I felt myself only pulling to the purple and black instead of everything as one image.

I agree with the PPs.. I would definitely make the pic a little bigger.  The purple and black design pulls attention away from the pic. And the location of the wedding is a good thing to add.  You don’t have to put the exact venue if you don’t want to, but at least the city.

I also agree to make the photo bigger and the purple damask background less distracting.  Maybe make it more faded and do the font bolder and something else I’m not quite sure of.  It’s a bit hard to read.  Also, you definitely need the location of the wedding, just city and state will do.  I’d check out some ones on Etsy to get ideas on how to do all that.

Are they going to be postcards? If so you can list the location on the back.

I would also make the pic a little bigger and reduce the size of the left hand portion. Don’t make it 50/50 though. That is not an eye catching proportion.

Also…I know you are sending them to the printer Friday and I’m not sure what the cost will be in the end BUT Vistaprint is doing 50% off and for 100 save the date magnets, it’s like $54 AND you can upload your image that you created.

@Mrs.T To Bee:They have a ton of different specials. My friend just got 100 stds for $54 and they are the large magnet ones. That’s what I’m also doing with mine. My Fiance designed the std and we can upload it to a magnet on their website. Go to vistaprint.com and look around depending on the type that you are looking for.

The magnets sound like a great deal, but don’t forget to factor in additional postage!  Also, I had a friend who did those but went cheap on the envelopes and they got stuck in everyone’s mailboxes, the mailtruck, etc and were never received!  Love magnets, but make sure you do them right!

The backround is way too loud for my taste.. I also am not a fan of the font. Save-The-Date Cards are usually for out of town guests.. they need enough time to get hotels/tickets.. so you should put in the city and state of your wedding. You should also switch the proportions of the info and the picture.. right now it looks like its 75% info and 25% picture.. You should make it 75% picture and 25% info.. it is also pretty common to put ‘formal invitation to follow’

I would add the city and state of the wedding. If you don’t list it, list your website so they know where to find your wedding information. I hope this helps.
