I think that woodgrain background is really cool! A couple suggestions:

-the text below the purple flourish; all caps but first letters of words larger…my eyeballs don’t like it

-the “SW” after the street address is larger than the street address, not sure if that’s necessary

-“invite for for an evening with dinner and dancing” sounds a little odd. Maybe “invite you for an evening OF dinner and dancing” instead?

-I would consider making the “and” between your names in the black so your names pop even more

I agree with the above suggestions, but also, I am not too sold on the font used for the names. Maybe a script font? I would also make the size of the time/date information and the address information the same. The time/date information seems larger.

@SimplyKia:  I agree that a script font will probably look better. I do love the colours and simplicity of it though, great job!

Totally agree about a script font! I agree with all of the above suggestions, except that the all caps doesn’t bother me, at all.

I like it, the only little thing to pick on is the font sizing is a bit iffy

I’m no pro at fonts and things, but can suggest a spelling correction:  Marriage, not Marraige.  🙂

@Sunshine1011:  I LOVE the woodgrain effect. Is that the paper or a print? If paper, I’d love to know where you got it! I think the design has a nice balance too. Remember, everyone will always nitpick about the little details. In the end, it’s your invitation!

I’m a grammar nut, so I have to suggest these technical changes:

1) The “I” in “invite” should not be capitalized (or in this case, bigger)

2) You send an invitation TO an event.

3) “With” is grammatically acceptable (I’m pretty sure.) “Of” is just more common. Whatever floats your boat!

4) Jazz it up with an adjective 🙂 

 

“invite you to an [adjective] evening of dinner and dancing”

Adjective ideas: elegant, exciting, enchanting, whimsical, relaxing, romantic, etc

@Sunshine1011:  Ooh, I love those pocketfolds too!! I was considering ordering from cardsandpockets too, but I’m torn between a pocketfold (identical to what you what) or a format more like this. Heck, I might even do the pocketfold AND the lace/twine. Ugh. So indecisive.
