What style Save the Date cards are you going with? Are you including a photo (or multiple photos) of the two of you? Or did you choose a style that doesn't use a picture?

What did you choose?

    We went with the refrigerator magnets and everyone LOVES them! Also, they have a daily reminder of when the date is coming.

    We didn't do a photo, I am not a fan of the photo STD's, I know they are popular though.

    We chose no picture. I waned a picture but the photographer didn’t have them to me in time to order them (super sale- 75% off). So I just did no picture. I like it, it’s different than the save the dates I’ve been getting lately which all have pictures. Although, I do love the pictures

    I didn't want to use a photo, but eventually went with one that featured three photos (one main one and two small ones). We didn't have engagement photos taken, so we used some of our favorite shots of ourselves from previous vacations. It was also a magnet - that was a must-have for me.

    We decided to do the magnet and with pictures! We did multiple pictures because we could not decide on just one or two!

    We did little magnets with no photo! It didn't seem worth the $$ to pay extra for the photo STDs.

    We did a photo because we wanted to share our engagement photo!

    We got magnets and I made the design myself, I was really happy with how they came out!

    We decided on one with a picture, I've always been drawn to that style!

    I'm still in love with them. We have one on our own fridge and I'll look at it every now and then when I go to grab something!

    Were not doing a photo for the save the dates because I am just going to print my own for those to save money. We are adding pictures to our invitations that will professionally made and be sent out later. 😊

    We didn't send save the dates, but I'm toying with the idea of a picture for our wedding announcements!
