This save the date has a bold art deco vibe. With only hints of color it still makes a huge statement.

They are both lovely, but option B is my favorite. The blacker appearance of "Save the Date" help pull the eye in from the borders to the middle better.

B - better balance btween center and dark patterns...also pls dont shoot me ill make the hearts one color only, perhaps even black... Feel if it's black, you grow your market..2colors feels more in a 'vegas' direction, where black would be that but also elegant black tie. Hope u feelin' the love.

They're all gorgeous, Rebecca - so hard to choose! I'm going with D because I think the black border looks very dramatic + eye catching. Super awesome job, though! I think whichever way you go, it'll be a winner!! :)

Again such a hard choice, but I'm leaning towards C as I think the red hearts just give it a lift. This still looks Vegas enough for people to use it for that if they want. This would look stunning letterpressed!

I love A and C -- I'm voting A though b/c I think it feels a little more wedding, and I think the one-color makes it a little more delicate, but seriously love both!

Maggie on Sep 6, 2013 at 6:57am

Since it appears to have a card theme, I think it works best where the different card suits show in black/red, and I prefer the black border to the white.

I'm loving C! It reads much better. I personally like the black and cream. Just thinking that if you were to drop the Vegas theme, it might appeal to many more customers. Great either way though!

B! I like the scallop circle die-cut better. Have you tried simplifying this Rebecca? I really love the details in the center of your design. I'd be interested to see a version with a few of the ornate outer rows taken out. Of course, that's just me!

Yay!!! You did it! Well, it's a no-brainer B for me, but so hard to choose between the Vegas theme and the plain. I guess at the end of the day you would have a broader customer base without it, so I vote C colour-scheme in the circle (did you try the scalloped template?) :) If this doesn't win something I will get on a plane and complain in person!

I love the Las Vegas theme to it - brilliant! I agree with Hooray Creative, the elaborate border is amazing, but I think the design can be equally as strong cropping it so the STD info is a little bigger. Then you can use the outer border designs as your backer when it wins or gets selected!

I vote layout of B with the non-Vegas design. My feeling is people tend to get married last minute in Vegas, thus not needing a save the date.
