I think what you’ve described sounds fancy enough. Is your wedding extremely formal or more casual?

Our invitations are DIY and there has been no end to the compliments we’re getting. I wouldn’t worry about them looking DIY as long as you and your FI like them. I would only raise an eyebrow if I got something that the couple clearly put zero time or thought into – which, I am sorry to say, was how I reacted to my MOTHER’S wedding invite. (One page of printer paper, black ink, all text, mailed in a regular old business envelope. I know she’s my mom, but come on!) 

For what it’s worth, I think your invitation is pretty. The green summer leaves mixed with the orangey autumn ones? Lovely. Screw anyone that goes, “Oh, well, I know that THEY like this, but it simply isn’t FANCY enough!” Weddings are about happy feelings, not fancy letterpress stationery.

I think the design is really cute!

The only thing that kind of bothers me is the font for the names is kind of blurred – looks like a stamp that wasn’t inked enough, and the other letters are really crisp.

I think they’re simple without being plain, and very clear and easy to read.  I agree with metalbride about the font on your names, it looks a bit splotchy.  Good luck!
