    This is what we've done...we live in NYC, so thought that the double sunset pics worked. First pic is of a bridge near our house, second pic is from a trip to the RM last year.

    We're going pretty casual and didn't want the text to sound overly formal. Did we succeed? =)

      I love it !
      I really like the causal contemporary feel with the hint of beach.
      Mission accomplished!

            i really LOVE it! is it being sent in an envelope or as a postcard?

            my only suggesstion is to make the "We hope you can join us..............Riviera." a couple sizes bigger (font) so that it pops out more.

            Nice job!

              I think it's perfect. I love the contrast of NYC to mexico. It just makes you think the trip will be so perfectly relaxing. The wording is also great. That's a lot of what I was trying to say on mine. Great save the dates!

              We have the same wedding date! The other day I had a gatorade bottle that expired June 21, 2008. I was so excited to see my date in print & know that the day will be here as fast as gatorade goes bad :) I grabbed one & brought it home to my FI.

                  Your website is also great. In 08 the solstice is actually on the 20th. I was a little dissapointed to learn that. Must be due to leap year because it happens every 4 years. But people still think of June 21st as the solstice so I'd just leave it as it is.

                      ack! I forgot to blank out our website. It's still totally under construction. *blushes in embarrassment* Don't judge it too harshly.

                      That's so interesting...a number of date sites put the solstice at June 21, 2008 @ 00:00 or just a few minutes earlier. In other words, it's weirdly right around midnight. However, looking at sunrise/sunset times in Cancun (nearest city with prediction times), the 21st is still the longest day of the year. Therefore, I think we both picked the right date!

                      Thanks for the feedback, everyone!
