  • Looks good.  Do they have a wedding website?  If so, I would include that on the STD.

  • Yes, they do have a website. I am going to put that on the back. It is a postcard.

    I wanted to make sure I wasn't losing my mind, because she didn't seem to impressed, and only had bad things to say.

  • She was not happy with the color of the outline of the box, and other than that she didn't like the lack of info. But Like I had explained to her that It would all be on the back, plus this wasn't an invite, that's what formal invites are for.

  • I think it looks clean and simple, which is a very good thing. Hopefully your friend can convey what she'd like changed in a grateful manner. She should be happy to have your help, I think they're adorable!
  • Thanks Ladies! I appreciate it! I knew you would all tell me if there was something wrong or I missed something!

    Oh, well, those things sound silly.  I really like the outline of the box, and I love that you have the orange, but its not in your face Halloween.

    One of my bff/bms did my STD for free.  When she showed me the first design, while I appreciated the work that she did, it really wasn't my style at all.  So we talked about what would reflect me and Mike more.  It seems like she just has a few nitpicky things, though.

    I would show her what the back is going to look like.  Are you going to design her invitation?  Maybe you could show her the difference between the std and the invitation, then.

    That's what I said, Tell me what's wrong but she didn't say anything. Just didn't seem excited about it or happy to see I had it done.

    I am doing her invites too, and she has seen them. So she know's the difference and she saw the STD and invites I did for my wedding. I don't know. I'm just going to back off it until she tells me what's wrong with them, or decides she wants them printed.

    Just a little taken back I guess, I would have reacted a lot differently.

    Good idea.  Hopefully she'll come around soon.  Personally, I think it's really cute!    Wish I was that talented!

  • guess i'm in the minority, but personally i don't like the orange. is that a specific shade of their wedding? do they have another pic that's in color? the orange with the sepia picture is like BAM! and it makes you miss the pic completely. 

    i would also add some lines in there..to break things up. but that might just be my style. like put the "Save the Date", and then their names, and then the info in different boxes. that way the orange is broken up and not so dominant.

    or if they had a pic in color that maybe had some orange in it, i think that would look good.
  • Yep! I asked those questions. This is one of their colors, and I asked her if she had a different picture she wanted to use but she wanted this one.

    I am going to make another one with brown maybe, she's having a fall wedding. So we'll try that one. Her colors are Orange, Brown, and Green but not hunter.

    Thanks for the input!

  • I like them. I think the b/w looks good against the orange contrast.

  • I think it's too much orange.  It's like a big orange text box and tiny font.  I also think you should put what people are saving the date for.  Something like "save the date, we're getting married" or "we're tying the knot" etc.  Plus, it would be more text to fill up the orange box.
  • I like it, but I wonder if you could soften the edges of the orange?  Maybe the bold color would work better if it wasn't a bold outline?  Also, I would want the font a little bigger so there wasn't so much empty space.  I am a little OCD, so please take me with a grain of salt.  I do like the STD, though, and I love their colors.
  • So I did the same style a little different with a color picture, what do you guys think? I know it still has the same orange box, but I was in a hurry needed to get back to work.

  • I'm partial to the orange, since that was our color, too.  But I agree with Vicky, the orange box might be a little too big.  Perhaps try it smaller--taking out the extra space between the text lines might help reduce the size of the box.  IMO, a bold color like that is best used as an accent.
  • Thanks everyone! They have now decided they want one without pictures at all! So back to the drawing board! I hope she gets me something she would like it to look like! Or a better idea!

  • What does she want on it, if it doesn't have pictures?  Just words?  Pictures of something wedding related?  Does it sound like I'm being snarky?  I'm not trying to be.  We didn't have our picture on our std, but you need something to take up some space, in my opinion.
