Hi Bees! I’m in need of some assistance and I just know there’s bound to be a couple of bees that can help me out!
So I’m planning on printing my own invitations, and I’m having a little issue with the most important part – our names! My fiance’s full name is too long to fit on one line of the invitation and be the same size as my name. Is there a certain way to approach this? Or am I just doomed to have to use smaller sizes than I was hoping? I guess I could exclude his middle name, but then should I exclude all the middle names from the invites?
I really appreciate any advice that’s given! I’d rather not post examples for privacy sake, but I can try and mock up an invite using fake information. Thanks!

I’d exclude all middle names!

I suggest you either use a smaller font. Don’t do dramatic drop, reduce it by half a size each time. So it it’s at 20 right now reduce it to 19.5, until it fits. What software are you using to do your invitation? You can make the names a word art, then adjust it to fit in the space available bu pulling out the edges.
If that doesn’t work out, then use initials for middle names, or eliminate the middles names all together.
Hope it works out

My name is longer than FI’s so I just played around with the size of the invite in the end the invite ended up being able to fit only in a 9 by 6 inch envelope they came out great. It was the only way to keep the design and keep the font big enough to read. This is a mock up with names changed. Do you have an example of yours that we can maybe help you out with?

@Mrs Christopher: What is the name of the font you used for your names? I love it

@Coquette: Trajan Pro, I downloaded it from one of those free font websites. 🙂
