I think the invites look really good! What are your wedding colors? Maybe you can add a little bit of color to them?

I like it! I would just be consistent with the ampersand (“&”) and using the word “and.” I think choosing one would look better.

I agree w/ PPs to add color, somehow. Black backing, maybe a fade in the corners, idk? Maybe a gray shadow behind “invited” and “Saturday” would give dimension?

Also, I agree with @RayRayFurious: about the consistency with the ampersand. It doesn’t have to be the same design for the whole invite, a more basic one with your names, and then the scrolly (?lol) one where it is, but keep it fluent.

Other than that, they look really great!!

If it’s letterpress, I don’t think you need to add colour. The texture is interest enough; it just looks a little plain on the screen.

On the wording, I keep reading “You are invited together with their families.” As one sentance. I think you need a bit more of a break, maybe a double line? IDK.

I love it- but consider making the DATE rather than the ‘Saturday’ larger ? 🙂

Or remove the line between tog…families and your names.

Have you printed them out?  Once they’re printed, even just on a inkjet printer on regular paper, they look so different then on the computer screen.  The pic you posted of your inspiration invitation is almost exactly what you have, it’s just ‘real’.  The one you designed is on the computer screen and is hard to picture how it will really turn out.  I think you have a really great design though and if you are able to do letterpress I think it will turn out SO nice!

I think I agree with having the date be more of the ‘highlighted’ item than the day of the week.  The way you have it, it’s almost like a bolded statement.  One o’clock in the afternoon SATURDAY November 26th.  It’s like Saturday is the focus.  If you made NOVEMBER TWENTY SIXTH the focus, it might look a little better.  Or have Saturday the top line.  It looks slightly off with the one o’clock above it.

Buuuuuut  I also think NONE of your guests will say any of that  =)  It’s just us nitpicky brides that are concentrating on that for our own weddings.  All of your guests will say they are beautiful and will be SUPER impressed when/if they find out that you did it yourself!

I really love how it looks! I read the first few lines as one though: “You are invited together with their families”.  I would maybe put the “together with the families” below your names, but I am probably just weird in the way I’m reading it!

I LOVE them! But full disclosure, I often get crap for the complete absence of color in my wardrobe.

Seriously, I think they look simple and chic, and will look even more fabulous when they are letterpressed!
