I think you should be careful, as the people who design these may have them copywritten. If I were you I would take this post down.

I don’t really love the fonts you’ve selected, but if you’re getting married in a Catholic church, you should request the honor of their presence.

They are cute! (Not my style) but very well done!

The dots remind me of bingo dabbers. Not a big fan.

On matte white stock, I would phone around to local printers.  You can probably get them printed cheaper than that.

@HappySky7:  If she isn’t selling them, shouldn’t she be okay? I mean most designs you make yourself are going to look like someone else’s design. She isn’t making money off them. Maybe I’m wrong, but I thought we could make our own stuff to use as long as we don’t sell it.

Love them!

And I wouldn’t worry about the copyrite thing from etsy… the design is similar to a Kate Spade invite as well and you’re not selling them, you’re just using them for your own needs.

My only suggestions might be to make the events and travel card look more concise. Maybe even just adding apaces between the different sentences? It looks fine as-is, but if I got it in the mail I wouldn’t read anything except for the URL and I’d just go there.

@JJBelle:  I really like the simple, to the point wording & the layout looks good. I have only a few suggestions, mostly just personal preference:

1. If getting married in a church, it should be “Honour of your presence” -like the pp sugested

2. I’m not in love with the all over dots on the RSVP card- maybe just the top & bottom or diagonal like your other printings.

3. The “&” in the invite bugs me and I’m not sure why. Maybe spelled out in a smaller font, or keep the symbol, but smaller (italics maybe)?

Overall, pretty and fun!

 

ETA:just saw your lasted posted about #1. We must have been posting at the same time. I don’t think the wedding police will arrest you.

@JJBelle:  Don’t deal with anyone who charges for a sample of digital printing (offset would be different, obv) – that’s a sign they are going to be a PitA.  We got half a dozen samples for free.

@JJBelle:  Yes it does – (I hadn’t looked at the original with my first post) – I just don’t think it should be as prominent as the letters in the name.  But again, a minor personal preference.
