    Nice and clean. I’d personally do a more fancy font for the invitation details. I’d also take off the registry information – that shouldn’t really be included in your invitation. If people cant’ find out online where ou are registered, they will ask. Word of mouth is best way to spread that type of information.

    I agree with the PP, use a nicer font for the invitation than the standard (what is that, times new roman?) so that it looks more professional

    I agree with everything the PPs stated. Also, I’d take out the “on” before Saturday, and write out your state’s name instead of using the abbreviation. I’d also mount a color cardstock border behind the invite in purple or green. It just looks a little too stark inside the lace pocket.

    Yeah, that Times New Roman looks like a work document, ack!  (No offense, that’s just my association with it.)  I would try to find something that’s somewhat plain but a little more formal or festive.  (1001freefonts.com has a ton.)

    Also, maybe scoot the “alicia & tony” to the right a bit so it’s centered when the lace is on it.  It looks off-kilter.

    I think if you put the registry info on your website, that’s enough. 

    Besides that, I like it!

    @missaliam:  i love the little lace jacket.  i would centre your names at the top so it looks more even in the jacket.  the font.  it’s boring.  surely you have more to choose from. 

    i would omit the information regarding where you are registered.  all of that should not be included with the invite.  put it on your website.  also, i would suggest using a very simple font for your website address.  these should always be easy to read with just a glance.

    i like the colours too.

    The names are at a degree of rotation that reads as a bit severe. I’d straighten a tad. I’d also centre them as a PP mentioned due to the nature of your pocket.

    i think you definitely need something on the pocket where the corners meet. Maybe a tag with your monogram, or a wax seal, etc.

    I think you need a different font instead of the Times New Roman one. And I’d move your names down a bit. There seems to be a big gap between them and the invite details in your first pic.

    Those are cute. I agree with the first critique. I would omit the registration info and make the details font a bit more eye catchig. I actually thought this was for an informal event after seeing the invite, but the lace sleeve (gorgeous!!) reads as more formal, so maybe work on making them flow together a little better. I really like the big “Alicia & Tony”!
