- Wedding: May 2010
I really like them! They are simple and fun. good job! 🙂
I think the proper wording is “two thousand ten”
I really like the overall layout. What font did you use for your names? I like it a lot!
My only other critique would be that maybe the contrast between the blue and pink is too much. Can you lighten up the blue petals a bit? I’d leave the wording dark though.
Very pretty! Good job!
great job! definitely gives the beach vibe!
Wow, those are great. I could not do a DIY invite. I love the color of the blue. Just as constructive help though, I first thought the flowers were snowflakes. Was that your intention? I had to look at the date and realize that a May wedding probably doesn’t have snowflakes. Again, just trying to be helpful.
Thanks everyone! I’ve changed it slightly since I posted but it’s great to hear positive reactions. Jacqi: There’s a big controversy on the proper wording of 2010….haha, so I may change it. The font for our names is Edwardian Script ITC.
And thanks MissPug, it’s actually ‘poached’ from a holiday invitation I fell in love with that’s called “Snowflake”! But I think it suits our beach wedding.
I kinda thought they were snowflakes too, but then saw the date. Maybe make them more flowery looking if that is what you going for?
I don’t think it looks like snowflakes at all! But the blue is kind of dark for the pink. Other than that – great job! I always enjoy seeing everyone’s personal style and DIY invitations!
it must be my monitor, i had to go back and look to see the pink! but they look great!
@Shaema- oh man! my name doesn’t look as good as yours does in Edwardian 🙁
The colors look much better when printed out. But here’s my updated version.
I almost didn’t see the pink on the first draft, and it’s much more visible in the updated one. I think they look great and I love your fonts. I do like a PP’s suggestion to lighten the blue in the graphics, but keep the text dark. Also, the year is Two Thousand Ten, not Two Thousand and Ten.
From a composition standpoint I think the text is competing with the graphics. On some lines it looks like the text is “avoiding” the graphics but on others it runs right over them, so if I were being really picky I would try to standardize that. What does it look like if you align the text on the right instead of it being centered? Also it might look stylish if your names were a larger font than the rest of the text.
I agree that the blue on the graphics would probably look better if it was lightened. It should probably be lighter than the font color.
I hate to say this, but at first I thought the graphics were snowflakes, which I guess isn’t the look you were going for. Maybe if you lose the blue color the design will look less like a snowflake?
