    Great thread, ladies!  Thanks!  Any ideas on when STD's should be sent out?  We have a July 2013 wedding, but family and friends are coming from Europe, Canada and US.  We don't have a confirmed place yet, but definitely set on Cancun area in Mexico.  Is it ok to send out STDs with just date and general place?  Thanks for your help!

       Thanks. :o) We are confirmed for May 29th so I want to get our Save the Dates out at our 1 year march which is in 11 days!.. They will probably get sent at our 11 month mark more likely.

       

      Have you chosen your exact day yet? If not, and you are set on July in Cancun, Mexico then I don't see a problem in putting: Save the Date for our wedding in July 2013 in Cancun, Mexico. Because your actually invitations will have the exact date and details.

          Here is our Rough Draft on Save the Dates.. We need to get our pictures made so I can remove this pic and insert ours.. :o)  Thanks to SGreen for the inspiration. :o

          We are going to print these on cardstock and attach magnetic tape to the back.

          I was trying to keep these coordinated with our wedding colors.. Pink and Orange.. But I really didn't like the orange on them.. Should I also change those orange lines to pink? Other color options or fonts are greatly appreciated. :o)

            That looks really nice, thanks for sharing and giving your advice!  I don't mind the orange at all, might be too much pink if you change.  Just my opinion, though...plus it's my fiance's favorite color, so I'm biased!

              I understand how you would like to incorporate orange but I think I'd  to change the line to pink...in my opinion the orange doesn't really have enough presence so either amp it up with orange elsewhere or change the lines to pink.  I love the font choices though!!  Looks great!

                Thank you ladies!!.. I guess I will play around a bit more and decide if I should amp up the orange or go with pink... ahh the little details always get me!!..

                 

                And thank you!!... I was really worried about our font choices. :o)

                 

                Are you ladies having an AHR? If so, are you including a note with your Save the Dates that mention one?

                  I am having an AHR but right now all the details are TBD so I am just mentioning that if you can't attend our Mexican nupitals we hope you can join us for the AHR after we return....of course it sounds a little more polished than that ;)

                   

                  As for font choices, I have always hated trying to pick fonts (for newsletters, promotional things etc) so I left that in FI  capable hands - lol!

                    Don't think we'll have an AHR because our families are so spread out through US, Canada and Norway.  We live in Norway, so only FI's family could come anyway.  Hence the wedding in Mexico, sort of middle ground for everyone...lol

                      I thought I posted this last night.. but I guess it didn't go through.. Ignore the wording, I'm terrible at it so my fiance is working on it. :o)

                      I was thinking about printing this on 110 lb index cardstock that I bought by mistake this weekend rather than letting it go to waste.  I will add this in the envelope with our DIY Magnetic Save the Dates.  Thoughts?
