I can’t quite pinpoint why, but for some reason the “cocktail reception to follow” looks funny… Is it the same font as the address and things above? Maybe it’s because the letters are closer together when compared to the spacing above… Not sure why, it just looks a little off to me. 

I absolutely LOVE the design and wording though, it’s super pretty! Did you do the image yourself?

I think that looks great! I’m also looking to take advantage of that vista print sale. Can’t not love saving 50%! 

One question, are you having the reception at the same place? If so, I would suggest saying “cocktail reception immediately to follow” just so people know that it’s at the same place. Some might get confused. Also, are you serving dinner?

@MrsRevolutionize:  You should raise the line of text with “Together with their parents”. In a couple of places the text is getting covered by lines from your names below. 

What’s your wedding theme?

@MrsRevolutionize:  I figured since you used “Cocktail Reception” but I thought I’d ask because one of my friends used that on hers, and people were VERY confused, haha. She didn’t know that it meant just drinks and heavy hor d-oeurves. I think people will get the point even if you don’t include “immediately” but I know some of the older crowd in my group would be asking for clarification.

Cocktail should be capitalized to fit the format of the other lines, which all begin with capital letters.

 

The RSVP date info is too spread out on the line by itself.  Could you move it to the line above and next to the email? Even if you have to chande the format to 7.31.2014 or simply July 31.

 

The doodle abive the RSVP line really doesn’t need to be there. You already have a nice sepration with the info by using the ( ).

 

Does it get dark at 5 pm? Or are you transforming your space to make it dark and starry at 5 pm?

The ‘Saturday’ seems to be in the wrong place – you’ve said the date, and then you’re saying the day and time.  Also, I would spell out 5.

I’d do:

Saturday, August 16, 2014

at five o’clock

Or, if that first line is too long:

Saturday, August 16

2014

at five o’clock

 

Very nice otherwise!

The wording is really awkward. “August 16, 2014, Saturday at 5 o’clock.”

Lovely invite! The only thing I’d say is “Please RSVP . . .” is redundant, since the SVP means “s’il vous plait” already.
