This is my Fav because it is fun and elegant at the same time. It is also easy to read. I just love this!! BTW by choosing the dress and background color to be the same you are automatically the focus of attention. This is what I call Marketing at its best!


This is my Fav photo 3446173-1


The last one which is your first choice actually detratcs from your photo for the same reasons it is accentuated in this burgandy.


It is also difficult to read the text. If you go with this choice then I would say you should add a drop shadow to he text to further seperate it from the background and thereby making it easier to read.


The grey one with calendar is very straight forward, but it lacks any kind of energy and pulls the viewer away from a happy event.


I am sorry if this comes across badly in any way. It is not meant to what so ever!I am only looking at these as if I were designing a marketing brochure and want to convey a feeling immediately with a focus on a product in this case you and your DH.

OK on this one I took the other photo from one of your STD and the reason I chose this photo on this background has to do with the lines.


This photo is at a perfect angle with the bench being drawn through the image and the things behinds FI also helps bring you through the photo.


The color of your dress is pulled to the forefront with the same colored background and the smiles on BOTH of you seem like you are having a lot of fun and this will be a fun wedding to attend.


Again, I am only looking at marketing and feeling created by an image. :)


I loved all of your save the dates, but because you asked for why or why not about specific images I thought this would be helpful.

IDO


it is not bad at any way at all.  It's always great to get other opinions.  and I am thankful that you are able to point out things that I didnt think of! Your explanations are great.

I love the font on the first one but I agree it is too busy. My favorite is option two. I immediately noted your dress.matched the background immediately. It is straight forward and to the point. The last one which is your favorite, the background makes the words look blurry. So my pick is number 2. Can I have one just because!
