I love the way the photos frame the edge!  It looks so much fun that way!  And I love how they’re all cute and different!

I love the design, but I have been staring at the words and for the life of me I can’t even make out what it says. (Obviously “so and so are getting married, save the date” — but the words seem to be arranged in a completely random order, angle, and color. I don’t know if older guests, or people not used to receiving save-the-dates, will be able to decode this.)

Save-The-Date Cards also usually contain the location of the wedding (just the city is fine) and words to the effecct of “formal invitation to follow”.

I like the concept…but the order of the words are way too busy for me. If I didn’t know what a STD was, I would think that your printer somehow messed up the order of the words.

Cute photos, but like PP said, I too stared at the picture for several seconds trying to figure out how the words should be read.

I definitely had to step back from the screen a bit to take everything in.  Maybe it’s partially due to the parts you had to block out, but I’m having a hard time following what you’ve written. 

However, it’s still obvious that it’s a save the date, but maybe people who don’t spend their lives on wedding blogs might not get it.

I also think it is a great concept; however, I too am having difficutly reading what it actually says. I thought it might because I have a stigmatism, but previous posters have also stated they are having trouble. Maybe make the nonessential words smaller and a different color than the essential words.

Also, isn’t postcard-size a bit big for a fridge magnet? The magnet Save-The-Date Cards I’ve seen are sized somewhere between a business card and postcard. Large enough to read the essentials, but small enough to have room left on the fridge, haha.

Did you re-design them so that they are readable and contain the appropriate information?

I took a look at this and was thinking that older people invited to your wedding may have a hard time following the wording …. well I had trouble too!  Did you decide to keep them or redesign the words?  I love the overall design.

I don’t get the order, like other posters. Cute concept and design, but the words themselves are hard to figure out. It gave me a bit of a headache…

I love the wordles and think the design is so cute with the wordles and the photos, but that the frame around the outside is a bit too busy imho.

You can also design a wordle where it’s got the words instead of going in all different directions, be in the same direction too.  I think it’d look great as a postcard without the frame around it.

I think all the words in the same phrase like “save the date” should be the same color that way it will stand out more and be easier to read.
