    Oh, and I am really interested in reading the letter you will be sending along with the STD explaining why you've decided to have a DW...I'm thinking of doing something similar, and I'd like to see your approach.
    Aw thank you. Your description is the look/style I was going for. Okay, I am going to work on it some more tonight. It's just hard wording everything I want to say int he letter.

        Here's what I have so far for the save the date letter
        This is what it will look like, except it will probably be printed on a light tan paper (I have to buy yet).

        Here is the wording
        Dear Family & Friends,

        As you know, we have been working on planning our wedding. We would like to officially announce our plans, which are set for September 3, 2010 at 6:30 p.m. in Cocoa Beach, Florida.

        Our decision to have a destination wedding is based on our love for traveling and the ocean. Getting married is a new adventure in one's lives and we wish to make ours even more special, surrounded by our closest friends and family.

        We realize that a destination wedding requires more planning, which is why we have decided to send out information as early as possible so that you can save our date. We also hope that by providing this information, people will be able to plan their trips to celebrate our special day. Some travel information has been compiled and can be found on our website. Our wedding will take place the Friday of Labor Day weekend, which may allow some people to take a “mini vacation”. We completely understand that having a destination wedding means that some people will not be able to attend. For that reason, we are also having an at-home-reception, which is set for October 2, 2010 in Huntingburg, Indiana.

        We are excited to share our special day with you and hope that you will be able to attend. Please “save our date” with the magnet enclosed. A formal invitation will follow but in the meantime please visit our website for more information regarding our wedding and travel arrangements.

        Love,
        Courtney & Chris

        *I may change some of it yet, but that's what I have so far!

            I squinted to read the script in the colored one you posted only to scroll down a little bit and see that you had typed it out.

            I love the idea of the letter, I will have to consider doing something like that. Makes it a little more personal then just pointing them to the website.

              Lol I'm sorry! I do stuff like that all the time. Maybe I should have put the text first. We have a lot of older guests that we are inviting that aren't very computer saavy and they probably won't understand a DW so I thought a little letter might help out some.

                That never crossed my mind, but we also have older guests and family that have never heard of a DW so that is a great idea. Plus, I've been hearing mixed reviews on having a website. I love the idea and had a lot of fun making it but some are saying that they got little response or RSVPs on their website and I don't want to be worrying that people haven't seen the site and/or our explanation for the DW on there.
