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. 🙂
