I like it!! But I would like it a little better if you used a different heart and all of the words for the invitation used “justified” alignment. I think it might look better if the lettering filled out the square shape. It’s also bugging me that the heart is sort of lopsided looking.

I like the graphics, personally feels like some color would help. I did the FI name and mine in our wedding color to stand out. 🙂

@colorofmyheart:  Sounds like you’re set, =)! I really wish you were getting married at The Royal Palace far far away. That would be amazing!

I like them! My only critique would be the two “with” clauses… “with happy hearts, together with their families”… something about that just reads a little awkwardly to me. But if you like it, go for it!

My two cents:

The different kerning of CINDERELLA and PRINCE CHARMING bother me a lot when the design is typography-centric.

“…together with their families…” and “…in their life together” is maybe too many togethers.

“will celebrate in spirit from afar” sounds odd to me; I think will celebrate from afar sufficient. When I hear in spirit when talking weddings, it’s usually referring to those who have passed away.

The ellipsis on the RSVP card looks a little wonky (maybe due to resize?). You could do away with it, or adjust the spacing between the dots.

the only suggestion i have is with regards to the kearning on the response date sentence, it is very tight and the loopy-ness of the fond kind of runs together a bit. perhaps drop it to just say:

we kindly request your response by XX date

that way there are less words to cram in/ fit

 

otherwise it looks great! be sure to post an “after” photo when you pick a color =)

@colorofmyheart:  I really like it! The only suggestion I have is making “their life” plural by saying “their lives” since the subject “they” is plural in the following sentence:

“invite you to share in the joy and celebration as they begin a new chapter in their lives together.”

@colorofmyheart:  just a note: square invitations must have extra postage because they aren’t a “standard” shape. So if you want to save on postage, I’d recommend going with 5×7
