@BabyBrain:  the wording looks a bit off-centre on the invite.  does your venue have any actual address that you can include on the map?

i also don’t think it’s proper to mention anything regarding gifts or wishing well with your invitation.

I would center all the wording to give some unity. (right now seems maybe a little random)

Could you add in some color? That might make it pop a little more

Also, you might want to bring any of the wording in that is close to the edge so the printer doesn’t cut off.

@BabyBrain:  Oh Nice! I love that idea with the cardstock and foil stamp. That will be nice!

@BabyBrain:  I would stick to just two fonts. It appears that you have at least six, which doesn’t make the suite look cohesive enough.

@BabyBrain:  Now that I look more closely, it appears that your names, the details, and the word “Response” are the same font. Are they treated the same? They look different because of the degree to which the words are condensed/italicized/bolded. I would at least double-check to make sure the spacing is the same. I would probably also bold “Response.”

I would at least nix the font for “attending” and “not attending” and use the script font from your main invitation instead.

Also, is Ruby’s a church or place of worship? If not, you should change the wording to “request the pleasure of your company.”

ETA: The font you used for the map is fine. It’s better to have a sans serif font on maps for readability.

I would add some color somehow or else if you really want black and white, some kind of pattern – maybe some backing for the invite itself? Or a border? or something? I understand simple, but this is a little too simple.    Just saw your comment on it being bluey/purple with gold lettering. Sounds good!

I agree with others on centering everything, right now it’s just all over the place.

A simple compass would spice up the map and just be helpful with navigation in general.

The wording could be a bit better with the gift card – maybe “The greatest gift we could ask for is just having you there to share our joy with us. However, a wishing well will be available…”I’d cut out the part about “we have plenty of things” part.
