I’m trying to get ideas for invites (way in the future I know) and I have leaned toward those with cursive script and a few swirl like details (these will be DIY) I was wondering if anyone purchased or desgined invites like that and were willing to share. I have been in the baby stages of desgining and have come up with this so far (Rough Draft):
But its lacking. It needs something and I am not sure what. Other examples or input would be much apprieciated.

@MidwestBride2012: that would look nice.
@Mrs Christopher: i would suggest looking at invite images on line and make note of the different invites that you really like. then you can combine your likes into your one invite. that’s what i did and i loved them

Thanks for the suggestions. I was totally thinking of doing a black border and the one you suggested for perfect. Now I just need to find one on the interweb I can use or get Word to do it for me. 🙂

Mine were very simple. It was a kit that already included the design on the left, and I did the rest of it.

Ours are simple and elegant (I hope!). This is the stock image:
Our runner-up design was rectangular but had an embossed border in the same bracket shape. I agree with PPs that a border would complete yours.

@LittleRiver: I recognize that font!! I was going to use it but there are too many L’s in my name and I didn’t like to look of the z either. His name looked good no matter what font we used. I still think its really elegant and its too bad my name didn’t look good in it.
I like the wording on yours too. I was thinking of doing the block letters with the script but I really like the look of the cursive.
So the top is the first with a border and some minor changes.
In the second I worked on the wording a bit more too. I took out the graffic of the church (its an picture of the actual church we are getting married at. I was thinking of doing a graphic of wedding rings maybe at the top for it.

These were ours. We had black back paper and white top paper. The bow was white and was just twisted once. The font was plain like this but with our names in script. The font color was called “smoke”.

@Mrs Christopher: Here is an idea I created

@Mrs Christopher: Another little tip: To add a little spark to the invite, you can add one small stick on rhinestone in the center of the graphic at the bottom.
NB: Usually you can find these rhinestones at Michaels
