    Here are my save the date postcards! I just sent them into vistaprint to print. It was 100 free, plus free glossy and free upload so I only had to pay $9 for the shipping. I'll post update pics when they arrive! 


    FI's face is grumpy on the front because although he's the happiest guy I've ever known, he always makes this grumpy face in photos and it's become kind of a joke with our friends and family. 


    I got a lot of ideas for the wording from other posts on this thread.. it was soo helpful! The design at the back was a lot different at first but stupid me forgot to check postcard design specifications before I made it. I ended up having to clear out some areas where the barcode needs to go and had to squish down the text.. I hope it won't be too small for some guests to read!! I tried to shorten it as much as I could but still include everything I wanted to say. Here is the text:


    Dear Friends & Family


    We are getting married! The ceremony and reception will be at the beach in Varadero, Cuba on Saturday, January 14 2012, followed by a lobster party on the 16th in Felix' hometown of Matanzas.

    We realize that due to distance and cost, some of you may not be able to attend. While we would be delighted to have you all come celebrate with us and our Cuban family, we understand and respect your decisions if you cannot make it. Visit our wedding website for more information and to leave a tentative RSVP if you are interested in attending. This will be very helpful in our planning.

    We are extremely excited and we look forward to sharing our special day with you!






    Now to finish the wedding website before these come in the mail...

      Very cute! My mom's maiden name is Casas that's so funny. She's Colombian though. Happy planning! :)

              Very cute and unique.  Love how the arrow points to the website.

                Thanks! I had the website at the bottom first but then I found out we need the bottom clear for mailing.. I moved it sideways but was worried some of my relatives might miss it completely so I put in the arrow and hoped it would be enough.


                Thanks everyone else too! :)
