oh! One TINY thing - is it awkward to not have 'of' between 'twenty third' and 'june'?? Not sure on what the proper etiquette would be?

Love the "Save the Date!" The other type is getting lost on the background, I think - maybe add a darker transparent overlay over the photo? Also, the hearts could be a tad larger. Great design. Good luck!

ooooh i Love it! this will be hugely popular! I agree with Kim -- maybe a slight darker overlay over the photo, and hearts just like 10% larger. So classy and dramatic
