irkeiko:  I think they are really cute! It isn’t too much at all IMO.

TBH, I think that people really over think invitations. Aside from your closest family members maybe, 99% of them are going to end up in the trash. Go with what you like and what is most cost effective.

they look great to me, my only critique is that i don’t love the photo you’ve chosen to put on the back. Neither of you are really looking into the camera or at each other. It just seems ‘awkward’ to me? Is that the best photo you have together? have you considered getting formal engagement photos done that you could use?

irkeiko:  There are some spacing issues on the front.  Just where the text gets super close to each other and creates an awkward tangency.  I would give a little more room to some areas, for example: the “d” in Saturday getting really close to celebration.

I’m an artist and designer though so I’m very detail oriented, so take my suggestions with a grain of salt.

irkeiko:  I actually like all of those better than the place holder! The 3rd is my favorite, it looks the most natural! The kissing one is probably my second favorite and might be cute on the back of an invitation.  You may want to add a small boarder around the photo to really make it pop 🙂

irkeiko:  I love all of the mismatched fonts! What fonts did you use, if you don’t mind me asking. I love the postcard idea, too! Very cute!

It’s pretty and whimsical! the flower design is very pretty – did you do it yourself? The font on “with their families” I think could be not slanted as much, it draws the eye upwards and distracts a little too much in my opinion. I also like the picture of you on the dolly, better – shows off personality and fits with your invitation style better, I think! You both look happy and in love in that picture! I like the idea of postcards, I did them for our save the dates. The only problem I had was not knowing who didn’t receive one, since there is no return address on a postcard if something was wrong with the invitees address, it doesn’t get sent back to you. I had a few people who said they didn’t get a STD – but I know I sent one. Overall – love it though!

Oh and make sure you check the post offices guide on postcard dimentions! I ordered some etsy postcard invites for a bridal shower of a friend, and when I took them to the post office to mail – I had to end up buying regular stamps because the dimentions were wrong. Completley defeated the purpose of postcards.

irkeiko:  I absolutely love it! The invitation I’m designing has a bunch of mismatched fonts, too, so I’m always keeping an eye out. Thanks!
