Sandra Paquette :  I see them now. 🙂 Please keep in mind I’m no expert with invitations and I’m sure others will come along with more helpful input but here goes. I like the starfish but the invite itself looks a bit cluttered and more like a letter. Maybe its the font type or font size? Not sure. I like the plain font on the RSVP card a lot better. For seats have been reserved in your honor are you going to just write a number in the space or will there be a line there to write it on?

The grammar nerd in me is hung up on the ellipsis, which technically should be used represent words have been intentionally omitted. I understand that socially, it’s used how you meant it here, but I just feel like for a wedding invitation I’d tidy it up a bit.

Here’s how I’d word it: 

“request the pleasure of your company for a week of fun in the sun – and more specifically, the celebration of our marriage!”

Cute!

I’d recommend editing the RSVP so it’s all in first-person from the perspective of the guest.

“We’d love to hang out with the bride & groom at the”

“We’ll be staying at the ___ from ____ to ____ dates!”

& maybe even “We promise to dance”

 

Just my suggestion though, I don’t think any of those are “necessary” changes!

Sandra Paquette :  They’re looking great! As a graphic designer by profession, can I say that there needs to be more hierarchy in the text. As in, you need to visually show that some information is more important than other. @heavenlyflower mentioned it feels like a letter. Play around a little more with font sizes and positioning. But they look super cute right now and definitely are doing a good job communicating tone 🙂

I use cardsandpockets.com already for my stds and invites.  they have a ton of free templates that you can design on their site and get proofs with as well.  tbh, i think your response card is cluttered and should be broken in to two seperate cards, a rsvp and an accommodations card.  

good luck
