I think it’s great, personally. I think the font definitely fits the Old Boston flair 🙂

I didn’t even know you could have a wedding at the BPL, how fabulous!

I think it looks nice, but on the second to last line the ‘C’ in reception seems bigger than the other letters lol. I’m not sure if it is bigger but it looks like it.

Hahaha- otherwise good  job.

Very nice! Love the colors and feeling of the design!

A couple thoughts: Did you try making the wording either all caps (like your names) or all small caps (like your parent’s names)? Or what about making your names in the burgundy instead of “to”  to differentiate them from the rest of the information? I also might make the margin around the edge a little bigger so the letters on all the lines don’t have quite so much space between them… and it allows for a little wiggle room when you have them printed.

Looks great! I would get rid of the second “in the” before “Boston Public Library Courtyard” and just leave it as a space.

Ok, the cheap side in me says that the burgandy “to” isn’t worth paying the difference between a black and white print (pennies), and a colour print (sometimes almost a dollar each).  But if you’re really attached to it, go for it.  Or maybe like suggested above, go with putting your names in burgandy.

This looks awesome!  I just have a few suggestions – feel free to take them or leave them:

It looks like you have everything jusitified, except the address, which is centered.  Is there a reason for that?

I would maybe remove “in the” before your address.  That way you can have a space before and after the adress to make it stand out on it’s own.

You have your parents listed but not his – is there a reason for this?  His parents might appreciate also being listed on your invite.  Often it’s in the form of “Groom son of _____”.

Someone else pointed this out, but it does appear that the C (and Os) in the second to last line are larger than the other letters.  This could be because of your font.

Besides names and times, it appears you’re using small small caps for most things.  I would use small caps for your “A” in the second to bottom line as well, instead of having it larger than the rest of the line.  You may want to use small caps for most things, in my opion.

In corporating my changes would give you the following (lowercase = smallcaps):

Mr. & Mrs. Richard J. Nashawaty
cordially invite you to attend
the wedding of their daughter


son of _________

friday, the seventeenth of september
two thousand and ten
at six o’clock in the evening

boston public library courtyard
seven hundred boylston street
boston, massachusetts

a reception to follow in the
popular reading room
