For a few months I’ve been working on these invites for my Disney themed bridal shower in a few months!!!
I love them so much, please proofread, I can’t find anything I don’t like about it so far. I’m also going to put rhinestones on the flourishes at the top too 🙂 I’ll add a final pic when they’re done.

I’m not a big DIsney fan, but I like these because they are understated and classy looking. Very nice!!

I love it! It’s super cute. One thing- as a grammar nerd, the “them” in the first line doesn’t refer to anything because you don’t mention your fiance. I would say “In the spirit of the magic that brought her love” or something, so it refers to you. I don’t know. Sorry to not be more helpful. That first bit does bother me a little though. Other than that, I think it all looks great!

It is a great start!
I worry that your corner bits are looking pixellated when I zoom in… I would worry about the size of those graphics and whether they will look smooth when you print it out. I would try searching on google for a .eps file that has a corner design you love, that will resize better and you can still insert that file type into programs like pages or Microsoft Word.
I would also either move those corners out a little bit or I would make the text below narrower on the last line – or a little of both. Ideally there should be an imaginary line down from those corners that is clean, with a margin of text inside.
The “Saturday September Twenty Seventh Two Thousand and Fourteen” feels awkward. I Think it either needs a line break between the twenty seventh and the year or it needs a comma. You can take out “and” as well – nobody says the year like that, we all say “two thousand fourteen” if we aren’t shortening it to twenty fourteen.

MrsYokiman: thanks so much, that’s EXACTLY the look I was going for!
vintagefemme: you know you’re right. I stared at it for a while and thought the same thing, but I wanted to see if I was the only one that saw it. Since I’m not, I can change it lol THanks
babeba: thanks so much, I’m not familiar with what images will look better enlarged I will definitely look into those .eps files. I will also work on the margin of the text to keep it within the corner’s borders. Regarding the date, do you think it would be better even if I were to just use numbers instead of words, or just use your previous suggestions?

It seems pretty standard to write:
Saturday, the twenty seventh of September
Two Thousand Fourteen
and the time either above or below.

I love it! So simple and elegant! I would skip the rhinestones though, but I personally hate them and think they look cheap. Just my opinion! No offense intended.

leisha606: ooo I’m so happ you like them! No, the wedding isn’t Disney themed. Which is why I needed the shower to be lol. I needed some aspect of my wedding to involve Disney magic!
gamerlover: No offense taken, that’s just personal preference. My family really liked it because the stones are small and subtle, so don’t worry I promise it won’t look gaudy. I’m so happy they look simple and elegant though, that is exactly how I wanted them to look, thank you 🙂

I think the font is a bit dated and hard to read, especially the “RSVP”. I will be honest, these look very homemade, and DIY. I like a good DIY where you can’t tell it wasn’t store bought/custom made.
I would switch to a clean, simple font for the main text, and a scroll font for some key words- your name, the date etc. Check out dafont.com, lots of free fonts to download, and if you check out the symbols fonts, you will get better images for the top left/right graphics.

MissLibra: I agree. I think they look dated and homemade…not in a good way. Have you looked at Etsy for maybe someone who could customize a listing for you and make it Disney-ish?

Quackadoo: Have you considered printing on a cream cardstock instead of white? Cream or ecru would soften the look. Nice job!

Something like this could be a bit nicer, and printed onto a linen cardstock- even a pale blue or light pink would feel very disney and soft without getting too childish.
