I really like the design, but I would go with a different font. Maybe something along the lines of Trajan Pro would go a bit better. Also, I think that the tree vector on the bottom would be much prettier without the trees. 

Keep in mind, too, that if you print these onto kraft paper (I’m assuming that’s what you’re thinking of?) The colors will not turn out.

You have done a wonderful job so far!

I read an awesome guide of typography a while ago and can’t find it, but if you google “typography guide” you will get a lot of results.

The thing I remember reading was about spacing characters on different lines so that the there were no overlapping parts. Currently the “y” of “your” and the second “d” in “wedding” overlap, so it looks messy. But what would look good is spacing it so that the bottom of the “y” falls between the two d’s.

I think I also remember reading that it’s good to have 1 of each type of font: a script, serif (i.e. times) and sans-serif (i.e. arial).

But otherwise I think its looking great for a first draft.

I don’t like the trees on it but other than that it’s okay.  The font’s a bit whacky and squished. If you take the trees off though, you have more room for the info.

I like everything but the trees. Is there a different tree you can use? I don’t even mind the background of the trees, just the actual outline. I know it’s a pine tree but I can’t help but think Christmas. Could you make the tree shape out of the background design? That might look neat.


And I might space “request the pleasure of your company” and “on their wedding day” just a bit.


Good luck!
