    I want to keep the wording on my STDs really casual, kind of like I would write on a post card. But, I find stuff like this really hard to commit to. I overthink it & want it to sound just right. So I'd love to get opinions.

    Here is the wording:
    We are getting married in Riviera Maya, Mexico on June 21, 2008! If you would like to join us in Mexico, we would love to celebrate our wedding day with you. We will also have celebrations in Texas and North Carolina after the wedding. All the details are available on our website.
    Best Wishes,
    Mike & Morgan
    Formal invitation to follow.

    This is what the front of our STD looks like (thanks to Sarah), but it also has the website url on the bottom.

        I think it sounds good, you give your guests the information they need to plan, (are you putting your wedding website on there?)

          Yes, it's on the front in a cute swirly font. I cropped it off b/c my FI asked me not to post it online. Kind of hard for me to do because I want to share it with everyone.

              Yeah if it wasn't on there that would be a big mistake. It would be a backhanded way to elope I guess. Or maybe just select for the guest who really want to be there.

                OK, I ordered them today from Vista Print. I got 100 postcards with 2 image uploads for $12 shipped. I will probably need to order more, but I'm going to wait until these come in. Can you get another cheap deal on ordering the same postcards again? Once the images are uploaded it seems like you can use them again for other projects.

                I got my text on the back a little too close to the top. It isn't cropped off, but it's right against the top. I didn't think it was worth another $4.99 to redo it though. I hope it looks fine.

                There checkout is a little annoying. It's constantly giving you other offers of things to buy. Then at the end a timer showed up & they gave me 10 minutes to decide if I wanted 150 more postcards for $18. Kind of funny to see all their sales tactics.

                I can't wait to see my save the dates in person!!!!

                  They are in!! It only took 10 days. I think they are so cute, especially when there is 100 of them. I've spread them out on the floor just to look at them all together.

                  the back is a little funny because I thought I had to leave room for a barcode. It was on the template. So I put the text up too high. Oh well, I still love them. DIY wedding projects are the best! The grand total shipped was only $12.
