    I really like the top one, which is apparently the minority.

    That said, I suggest adding details to the corners to give them weight and balance out all the white. For me, that’s what’s missing. I put them on mine and really liked the look. I can message it to you, if you’d like to see it.

    I think the top one has better balance.  But it is missing something….

    @MsGinkgo:  The colorful pocketfold will definitely help!  I’m sure once everything is put together with the other inserts it will look great!  I like your font choices- pretty and elegant, but not too stuffy/fancy!

    @MsGinkgo:  We’re kind of going for that too- our ceremony is going to be outside and super casual (it’s at a public park on the water), but our reception venue is at a nicer ballroom.  Gotta find that balance!  Your venue looks gorgeous!

    i prefer the 1st one, only because the whitespace seems more proportional. In the 2nd one, your text gives the “floating” appearance because it is so much smaller and doesnt utilize the space.

    That being said, I would change the typeface that you have the art collection’s name to the same typeface that you have used for your and your FI’s names. The font you currently have reads too bold and it was actually the 1st thing that I noticed– which I feel should be your two names.

    Are your colors black/white/ purple? if so, I think it works, if you are trying to use more purple than black– my suggestion would be to use some purple in your text, perhaps your names and the art collection names, etc.

    good start!

    It might help people visually if you just added your first names (Katherine and Adam?) and wedding date (May 14?) back in, or at least make some names and the date up – there’s a lot of white space now. I also think you should add the word “at” before “five-thirty in the evening” though I think five-thirty may technically still be afternoon if you’re going for formal. That said, I like the first invitation overall better, but I like the way your names are in the second invitation better. I would make the name of the venue in the same script as your names, and possibly small enough to fit on one line. What is the paper size you’re using?

    Hm I think people would probably find it helpful if you could put fake names and locations on the drafts for now.

    That said, I prefer the first one. The other one is a little “all over the place” with the fonts.
