Save the Date Design

Hi all! I'm designing our save the dates and I'm struggling with finalizing the design. I know I'm overworking it but I just want it to look awesome. Has anyone else struggled with making design decisions and have advise for moving forward?

Also, what do people think of the below design? This is where I'm at right now. I was thinking about adding stars to the back but it might be too much. The design is based on vintage travel poster feel. My wedding theme is essentially nerdy vintage travel and our colour scheme is going to be dark blue and coral. The idea is that each table at our reception will be a different location in a fandom we love.

    Thanks! I ended up going ahead and printing the design, with just a minor change to the back (replaced the "and" with a triforce).

    Thanks! Smiley smile

    I totally get stressing about things matching, I'm trying not to think about the invitation design at the moment. I know I'll want them to at least some what match but I haven't figured out the design yet for the invites.

    Glad the community was able to help! I find I overthink designs AS SOON as a send to a printer, so I find it's best to not think about it until the prints come in

    Design looks nice with your touch of personal preferences (Aladdin castle, Doctor Who police box and starship). Colour is phenomenal based on the evening look.

    Thanks Allison! Posting here has really helped, it’s good to get an outside opinion. And definitely good advice for once I send it out. I’ll probably just not look at it again till the printed ones come in haha.

    Thanks!! And yeah the stars are out. I tried it and they ended up just looking like polka dots. I love polka dots but didn’t really fit with the design. Also a science themed wedding sounds fun. You could do lots of cute stuff with beakers and the periodic table.

    I have asked my fiancé and he likes them. I’m trying to keep him involved in the panning and decision making. He’s just a lot more laid back than me, he likes pretty much everything haha. Also thanks for the tip about basicinvite anyways. I checked them out just to help with design ideas.

    I think they look great, i wouldn't change a thing. They're so original and it feels like they capture your personalities and the feel/theme of your wedding.

    I love them as they are there! They are super cute.

    We had troubles deciding on everything because we wanted it to all match but not be exact and that stressed us out. We also wanted to order everything at once to save on shipping costs (invites, RSVP cards, info cards, reception program and ceremony program) so we were very happy when they came in and all matched Smiley smile

    First of all, really love your save the dates!! I think what you have now would look great as is!

    As for making design decisions, I find I also second-guess things all the time. I find getting others to look over things helps a lot and getting feedback, like you're doing now! Once you do send your design to the printer, don't look at it with a critical eye, what's done is done at that point (unless you noticed a glaring spelling error). Honestly, we're always going to overthink our own work, but I bet your guests will love the final result!

    That looks amazing and I love the theme! I agree that stars on the back might be a bit too much and make it hard to read the text, but again, I think it looks amazing! My fiancé and I are thinking about having a science themed wedding so I love seeing that other people are doing fun/different/nerdy things too!

    Sorry I totally missed the point that you were making the designs, honestly as long as you’re happy with it that’s all that matters! You know your theme better than any of us, maybe ask your hubby what he thinks about adding anything else in?

    First of all - congrats on the engagement and welcome to the wedding wire community!!

    Then, I think they look perfect! I would say to keep the stars off the back side as to not interfere with the wording though.

    For me, I was going to do STD's but then I ran out of time, then I was going to have my invitations custom made by a friend and she ran out of time, now I am sending out my invitations this weekend and they are from vista print with a few adjustments that I made to make them look more like the ones my friend was designing.

    I found that the closer to actually needing them sent out you will care less and less about the look and more about getting the information out Smiley tongue

    I had a really hard time with my invites as well, I found basicinvite.com and fell inlove! You can customize everything with tons of different color options and designs.
