Save The Date Option 3

Save the Date Debate

There’s been a lot going on in the land of wedding planning lately. Sam and I booked our last major vendor yesterday, and I’m finally feeling fairly organized. Dec. 30 is officially six months out — it’s come up quick!

So far, I’ve gotten a ton of great advice from friends and family, including this little treasure: buy Save the Date postcards, magnets, whatever your poison, from Etsy. So I perused the vast selection even before we got our engagement photos back. I picked out a few favorites, and decided that the engagement photo I liked best would decide which style of postcard I went with.

And then I got the photos back. And I couldn’t decide which picture I liked best! So I looked at the Etsy designs more and came to the realization that there was no way I was ever going to be happy with something anyone else designed. So I opened Photoshop and went wild.

Enter the great Save the Date Debate. To be fair, I brought this on myself. I went hog wild and designed not one, not two, but THREE Save the Dates. For one wedding. So I went through the gamut of family, friends and coworkers and by golly, I still have a freaking three-way tie.

So now it’s all up to you! Help me pick the best Save the Date, post in the comments with your favorite design so I can get these suckers printed and have guests at my wedding!

Option #1

Option #2

  1. Ahh, with each one, I was like, “Definitely pick this one. No, the next one is even better! No, this next one is better!” Ummmmmmm….number one? But they’re all so good!

  2. I like how #3 looks like an advertisement straight out of a State Line Tack catalog! I vote for #3!

    (Plus, you look damn sassy in #3. Check out that little hip-cocked stance…MMM-H-MMM. *snapsnapsnap*)

    1. If you like “this could be in a catalog” pictures, just wait until I reveal the ones with the animals!!

      And thanks so much for the compliment!!

  3. I think number 3 is my fav. I admit though, I actually designed and then sent out 4 different save the dates for wedding because I couldn’t decide!

  4. #1, although I also really like the other two because the pictures are great. But I’d go with the first one for one simple reason: the final printed magnets will be quite small, and the first one has the best close-up of the two of you. You want your guests to see your fiance’s beautiful smiling faces, not the background!

  5. I love the design of #2 the best but they are all great. I can understand why you are having so much trouble. Maybe you should print out some of each and send different ones out to different people. I don’t think there is a bad decision here, though. 🙂

  6. I’m with whoever said to pick the first one because the magnets might be small. And I think your smile is the best in that one. =-) But otherwise I like the design of #3.
