    @ohbride14:  I found it a little difficult to read but it’s your wedding and if it’s what makes you happy do it!

    @ohbride14:  It’s your wedding so you ultimatly get to decide (hence the yes vote), but I think it is a bit hard to read and very harsh on the eyes, if you want something like that but a bit easier to read try looking into various Art Deco fonts.

    I think it looks pretty weird and difficult to read.

    @ohbride14:  That is a fun font – I’d have to see your names in it to judge.  It’s definitely an ornate font, and might be impossible to read.

    Do your names include a V or a J?  I think those are the weirdest/hardest to read letters.  I think if it’s just your names, it shouldn’t be that big a deal.  I mean, everyone you’re inviting to your wedding should know who you are already.  And you can print your names clearly on the return address part of the envelope.  So, I say go for it!

    @ohbride14:  Curious, does it fit with your theme or otherwise coordinate with the look you are going for?  Generally, I’d say go for whatever excites you!  It needs to reflect your personal style most of all.

    I agree that its a little difficult to read. I think it would suit an occassion other than a wedding better

    @ohbride14:  I wouldn’t put information in that font, but it should be fine for names.  We chose a decorative name font and a plain block font for info.

    if it’s just your names i think it’s fine – I wouldn’t do the whole invite in this font though.

    I’m dyslexic, and this is probably at the edge of what I could read.

    If it’s just your names it is easy enough to read and the people you are inviting know your names.  If everything was this font it would be too much and hard to read, but your names only is fine.

    @ohbride14:  if you only use it for your names, I think this is fine. Your guests should know your names anyway. But I wouldn’t use it anywhere else (partly because I think it’s really hard to read, and partly because I think it will be more unique if it’s just for your names).
