I want to put this line on our invitations-
“For you I know I’d even try to turn the tide…”
I’ve looked up the lyrics to Walk the Line and I’m pretty sure it’s right, but I’m terrified of putting an inaccurate lyric on the invites. Also, should there be a comma after “you?”
Aaaand, since we’re here- any feedback on this invite? It’s a Vistaprint screenshot, so ignore the resolution. Do they look “wedding-ish,” enough? I’m terrible at this stuff.

One of my favourite songs ever. I like your invites! Congrats 🙂

I like the addition of the Johnny Cash lyric. 🙂 It makes it unique, and its meaningful if you and your FI love Johnny Cash. (I do!)
What are the colors of your wedding? Do your invite colors match the colors of your wedding?
I’m not sure I love the graphics on the sides..

The lyrics are accurate, no comma needed. Cute idea btw. They look great.

I like the johnny cash lyrics. I think the rest of the invite wording needs to be tweaked, though. I’d omit the festivities to follow line because it’s redundant when you put dinner, dancing, etc … right after. The first comes love line also seems awkward when followed by the come celebrate line after. I like the design, though, and I think the lyric is definitely cool. Just not feeling the rest of the text, just comes off sloppy to me.

Honestly, I am reeeeeeally trying to avoid the whole traditional “so and so request the honour of your presence at…”
It just feels so stuffy. So, I went over to offbeat bride and ripped off some ideas, but they don’t mesh well, I agree. Would you just eliminate the first comes, part, as well as the festivities to follow? Should I replace them with anything?

Funny you should ask. I’ve spent all day trying to convince FI that our invitations should echo the colors of our wedding. He says it doesn’t matter, I say it does. The design kind of echos the filligree on my dress.
We’re renting a private room that is mostly decorated (art gallery style), but the flowers will be in blues and whites. It looks like this:
And here’s my dress, if that helps.

I think you need something to tie all the text together. I like the Johnny Cash lyrics, and I don’t mind the “first comes love” line OR the “come celebrate with us” line, but it looks like they belong on different invitations. Is there a more Cash-ish way to say “tie the knot?”
For you I know I’d even try to turn the tide
Come celebrate with us as we fall into a burning ring of fire!
Yeah…maybe you’d better stick with “tie the knot.” Love the concept though!!

It would be amazing to be ballsy enough to go with that!
I actually ended up with a different design. I never could really get exciteda about that one. So, we’re going with…

I’ll post them when I get a chance. Thanks for the feedback!
