Save the Date pick one - THEME IS RED GERBER/A DAISIES?

THE SAVE THE DATE BACKGROUND WILL BE A RED GERBER/A DAISY WITH PETALS COMING OFF.

OPTION 1:

He loves me

He loves me not

He loves me

So we’re tying the knot!

August 2, 2008

We want you to come celebrate with us

So Please Save the Date to celebrate the marriage of

Jane Boe

&

John Doe

***** My doubt here is I have the word celebrate twice near the end. How can I replace this?

OPTION 2:

As the flower blooms and petals unfold,

we're soon to say "to have and to hold."

We're making plans and can hardly wait.

Our wedding is near and here is the date!

We're getting married on

August 2, 2008

Mark your calendar and join us on our special day!

****Question here: Where Do Our Names go on here? and I am not too happy with the last sentence. Any ideas?

Update:

I forgot this one

The petals of a daisy

are symbolic of the way

that our love grows more and more

with each and every day

We’re Getting Married

August 3, 2008

Please Save the Date

Jane Boe

&

John Doe

**** On this one I felt I stumbled at the end....I feel as it doesn't flow. What are your thoughts and advice?

    Ok not one said anything about the third one, perhaps because you added it later. I like this one because you mentioned your theme is gerber daisies

    The petals of a daisy

    are symbolic of the way

    that our love grows more and more

    with each and every day.

    Jane Smith & John Doe are getting Married (ADD THIS HERE)

    August 2, 2008

    Please Save the Date

    ALTHOUGH...just like many...I really like the 2nd Option.

    I also agree that you should eliminate we're getting married on and just leave it as "Our Wedding is near and here is the date:

    August 2, 2008

    Then say:

    Option 1:

    "Please Join Jane Smith & John Doe on their special day"

    Option 2:

    After the date: " Come celebrate with Jane & John

    Option 3:

    Mark your calender and join John and Mary on their special day

    Option 4:

    Mark your calender and join John and Mary as they say their I do's

    By the way! I love your idea about your STD cards and your background. It's very unique! And so great you found short and sweet verses to go with the cards!

    Congratulations! I'm sure you've spent a lot of time searching for the perfect way do make everything flow and come together in a special way.

    You deserve recognition! Okay...I'm a little to excited for you, let me stop now!

    Good Luck

  • I'm guessing you've search the internet alot for these poems and STD cards.

    I really like the 2nd one. You can always change the wording to flow better. I'd get ride of the We're getting married on altogether because you'll already stating Our wedding is near and here is the date!

    It's all in how the card is designed. I own a small Invitation business and do this all the time. If you need help let me know. I can come up with something for you and you can take it to your local Kinko's and have them printed. Your on the right tack! Ever think about photo STD cards with the poem?

    Good Luck!

    I love the second option. I think it's really cute.

    You could leave off the last sentence "We're getting married on"

    I don't think that sounds right.

    You can just put "Our Wedding is near and here is the date!"

    Then put Jane Smith & John Doe to be wed on August 2, 2008

    Or you can put your names at the top of the save the date and just leave off the last sentence. The best thing to do is leave it short and sweet. You don't need to add "Mark your calendar..." I think they already know that.

    I like the second option. But take out "We're getting married on" completely.

    Your names could be at the top, as a heading or even as a background, covering the whole space.

    You could change the last line to "Please save the date to help us celebrate"

    Also, I wouldn't put first and last names. They're invited to your wedding. Presumably they know you. At least one of you, and the other by name, right? "Oh, my friend Jane is getting married. John and Jane, how cute." (Yeah, I know these aren't your names. Better still if one of you has an "original" name.)

    I think just having it like that looks best, short and simple.

    Your names can go like this

    As the flower blooms and petals unfold,

    we're soon to say "to have and to hold."

    We're making plans and can hardly wait.

    Our wedding is near and here is the date!

    Definitely the 2nd one. I would simple replace "We're getting married" with "Jane Boe & John Doe are getting married on" And the last sentence is fine. Best option of them all.

    Option 1 is strange because it includes the line "he loves me not". I would discard that.

    this is the one i like, so to incorperate your names you can do something like......mark your calendar and join Jane Doe and John Doe on their special day.

    instead of the " your calendar and join us on our special day!" and then it would look something like this:

    "As the flower blooms and petals unfold,

    we're soon to say "to have and to hold."

    We're making plans and can hardly wait.

    Our wedding is near and here is the date!

    We're getting married on

    August 2, 2008

    mark your calendar and join Jane Doe and John Doe on their special day.

    i think that would look good.

    Option 2 gave me goosebumps. Very sweet =)

    How about John and Jane are getting married on...you could put your names in front of that sentence.

    I like the second one why not have something like

    Mark your calender and join John and Mary on their special day.
