LOL, not those...Save The Dates. I can hardly use the acronym for them without giggling. So anywhoooo, I suppose I need to go ahead and pick some out and get them ordered. From what I've read, most people send them out 6-8 months before the wedding. Because our wedding in June 1, I think I may send them more along the lines of the 8 month mark in case people are planning their summer vacations. That puts me at sometime in October. My bf's wedding is Oct 13th, I'll be pretty busy with that and will likely get them sent off right after.

Now, what do I choose? Something with one of our engagement pictures? Something that goes along with our invitation suite (which we don't have yet)? A postcard? Decisions, decisions! I like the idea of incorporating our engagement photos, because really what else are we going to use them for (actually I have a couple of ideas, but more on that later). Do you like a postcard, or do you think they get messed up in the mail - I would be saving a negligible amount on postage, so that isn't a consideration.

Here are some that I am considering from Minted:

Of course, all of these can be done with a small photo on the back for a small extra if I do the non-photo STD I can still get one of our engagement pictures snuck in there :)

What's your vote?

I like the first one the best and the fourth one would be my second choice. I don't think you can go wrong with any of them though!

Haha I giggle every time I'm on a wedding website and see them write "STDs," too! I mean, come on, did we not all think about this before assigning it a nickname? Hah. The 4th one is my absolute favorite!

#2 was one of my top contenders, but I ultimately chose a photo postcard. Sending them out in 2 weeks - so excited! If you're not completely set on ordering from Minted, Wedding Paper Divas is having a 25% off sale right now!
