I think it looks a bit weird to have 15 as a number, but then the year as text especially without a comma seperating the date and year.  I think traditionally it is all written out in text like:   Friday the fifteenth of May, two thousand and fifteen.  At the very least you need a comma to make the date less confusing and a less slang written out version of the year, but I would either change it to all text or change the year to a number as well.  I might have soften the text to a very dark grey, but I wouldn’t add a color beyond that to the text.  It will clash with the swirls.  

I’m not one of those people obsessed with symmetry (in fact I usually love when it is not), but design on just one side with the text way to the right looks off to me.  Of course that could change depending on how it goes with any inserts.

I like the design – two small details. I think you have a double space between “to” and “share” on the line below your names. You don’t need to include the ZIP code for the place – unless you think people will be mailing things there 🙂

I agree that the date should be completely written out or written as May 15, 2015.  It’s not necessary to list the zip code on the invitation.

The only things I don’t like are the big fifteen and the “twenty fifteen,” which reads super awkwardly to me (but I never say years that way, so it could just be me).

I would change it to say

Friday, May 15, 2015

at half past two

Otherwise great job! You’ve come a long way 🙂

I think that Pinyon Script would lok really pretty as the fony for your name and matches the line weight of the swirls a little better.
