I need your honest opinions. What do you think of my save the dates? It will be printed out on postcard and turned into budget friendly refrigerator magnets.

Thanks for your help bees!

i love the idea, but it’s hard to understand. maybe color-coding the text would help, like Save-the-date all in one color, etc. so it’s easier to follow.

The pictures of you two are great. However the text is all over the place and will be very difficult for guests to understand what you are trying to get across.

I used that website wordle.com where it mixes the words of your message. It’s suppose to be a fun collage of words I guess. I was a little concerned that some people (mostly my old and wiser guests) will have a hard time understanding it.

I mean I get that the wedding is July 23rd BUT this seems unecessarily complicated.

Way too confussing and busy looking, it’s hard to understand the flow of the words when you have to bounce all around the page to see the information, especially when it’s surrounded by the framing and many pictures. Cool concept though, but I would clean it up more. I agree with changing the colors to match…but organize better.

I would be worried about the older guests and the people who don’t know what save the dates are.
Maybe if you want something different you can make it all backwards. ex- date the save 2011, 23 July married getting are Last Name Tommy and Last Name ValerieAnne THE.

It’s a cute idea for the words to be scrambled (for what I can tell it says “ValerieAnne and Tommy are getting married. Save the Date”. Something like that?)
I agree that some of the older folks will get really confused. I think that it can still be in that funky configuration, but have the words be in order. Love the photo booth pics. We did a STD that was photo-booth like too!

ditto neontl — keep the words in the same arrangement, but put them in order. contrary to what you see on wedding blog land, a lot of guests don’t know what save the dates are, so these would be especially confusing.

Thanks for the feedback! I will go back to the drawing board and post an updated version.

We did a giant worlde postcard for our Save-The-Date Cards. We printed the basic info on the back so it wasn’t difficult to understand. We also included other words relating to weddings.
