    very cute!

    you have to know your guests. are you inviting a lot of older family? they won’t get it. mostly friends? they will. if you really want to, you could do 2 designs – something more traditional for the older folks and this for the people your age.

    I think that is an incredibly cute idea and you should run with it… I liked the top one with the fact that it was a save the date bolded… Or, can you change fonts/sizes w/in Yahoo msngr? Could you make the save the date and the date bigger than the rest of the words?? Love, love, love it!

    I depends on your guest list. We are having a lot of politico’s and old fashioned family on our list so I went traditional (and that really reflects us anyhow). I would keep your guest list in mind while reflecting the style and theme of your wedding.

    I do think they are very cute, and it is a great start.

    I absolutely love the idea of the personalized STD!!!!  You can tell its an STD (for the family members who don’t know what Yahoo Messenger is) and for those who do … they’re really appreciate the creativity!!!!  (I’m referring to the first one, the 2nd one is cute … but for those who don’t understand Yahoo, may not see the beauty of it)

    Very cute – keep the personalization!

    Oh what a cute idea!  I love it!  The first one is definitely my fav. 

    And since you are only using it for your Save-The-Date Cards, I don’t think you have to make them traditional as long as the guests get the info they need.

    I think they’re great- so long as the information is there, I think its ok if some guests don’t ‘get it’.

    These are great! I love that it’s a personal touch – plus, they’re cute!! ๐Ÿ™‚  I think STD’s are your chance to break from the norm so go for it.

    PS.  We cut back to postcards too and I still love them. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I love those! We did a fake movie poster for ours, and are waiting to get them back from the printer right now. I feel like anyone who knows us (well enough to be invited to the wedding) will totally get it.

    Looks like I’m odd-man-out here, but I don’t really like them.  I think it’s a little busy.  However, I’m very traditional, so take my opinion with a grain of salt.

    This is totally an aside but are you getting married this April?! If so your invites should be going out in the next couple of weeks not the STDs! According to your listed date that’s only about 8 weeks from now. 

    I agree with the other PPs that you have to know your audience. If you think some would be confused you are probably right.

    I think it is a very cute idea, however, if I were a guest I hate to admit that I wouldn’t think very much of that STD. I dont mean to be critical, so please don’t be offended, I just think that a wedding is a special occasion and should be treated as such… without words like “yah” and “wanna”. Maybe you could use this idea for an engagement party? But for a wedding? I just don’t know…

    What is the theme of your wedding? Where is it being held? What kind of venue? If you want an elegant wedding/theme, then this STD would not be sending that message. If youre going for a more informal party-like atmosphere, then this may be the perfect idea.

    Good luck!!!! ๐Ÿ™‚
