I really like the invitation.  The tree design is so pretty.  My only question is about the font – it seems a bit informal to me but maybe you’re wedding is informal.  I also think the font of your names is slightly difficult to read.  Fonts are totally a personal preference though so if you love it that’s all that should matter!

Also, will you be providing an address or directions for the Greenwood Plantation on a separate enclosure?

I love it!  What a neat design.  If I were to change anything, it would be the fonts.  But like Tulip said, fonts are really a personal preference!

beautiful design! i do agree, though, that your names are hard to read in that particular script font.

I think sans serif or non-script fonts can be 100% elegant and don’t necessarily convey an informal wedding. Perhaps she can play with the kerning (letter spacing) and leading a bit (just a tad though).

Great colors used too!!! Snaps to your MOH!! Smile

I like it a lot, the only thing is that I might move up where the words start, so that they start closer to the top branch and the last line coincides with the ending of the bottom branch… I have no idea if that makes sense or not.  I actually really like the funky font.

Love the invite and the famcy font.. maybe make it bigger or try to make it more legible, Idk if it’s just since you posted online that it’s hard to read. I do love it though!

It’s so pretty…I could read everything except for your FI’s name. I wish I knew someone who could do my invititations!

As a suggestion for whimsical script fonts for your names, I’m using Prophecy Script from dafont.com. We’re making our own and our invites have that same script names and san-serif font look you are going for.

Otherwise, I LOVE the tree! We’re going with a floral motif, but I like yours a lot!

Great design!  I designed ours too.  I was going to get a pro printer to do it, but the woman I’m dealing with isn’t very reliable.  So now I’m thinking of doing the printing myself.  Any suggestions?

So beautiful! I *love* the shades of blue you have in the trees… definitely my favorite monochromatic scheme ;).
