The font is too swirly for my taste, but I like the white one more. I don’t like brown. I think it is wierd that you’d write her daughter when your parents are married eventhough he may not be your biological father. Wouldn’t that insult your step-dad?

I have thought long and hard about that, My mom and Her husband Peter have been married 5 years. The guy that raised me hasn’t even spoken to me in 9 years.
My mom and Peter are giving us money for the wedding and my Fiance family has not even offered.
So when looking up all the etiquette regarding my situation this is what has come up over and over. So I am going with it.
Peter and my mom are good with it. No one even batted an eye.

@Sekceyes: i actually think your wording is very appropriate. i also like the second version better.

Wording looks good – I think that’s the Chopin Script font – I used it to address my invites 🙂
I like the second one better, I think just because the color on the first makes it a little too much going on for my tastes.

I agree with PP – I like the white with the colored text, because I think the dark one has too much happening…I like the swirly font – but what if you broke it up with a couple of blocks of wording in a simpler text…I think it would make the swirly font pop more – that people would appreciate it’s “swirly-ness” more instead of saying “it’s too swirly.” There is a lot of swirly going on, and it’s pretty, but it’s a little busy… I just think it would tone it down and be less swirly-overwhelming if a couple of other blocks of information were in a simpler font. But it’s a very pretty invitation, that’s just my two-cents:)

I like the light version and I think the wording is very nice – I understood right away what the relation was. Is their last name the same as yours?
Not that it matters either way, but, if you have a different last name you might think of adding it. Something to think about, at least 🙂
I think this will look very pretty in a black pocketfold!

Hey! I think that’s the font that my tattoo of FI’s name is in! Something about it made me stare at it and stare at it, I guess it looked familiar! Haha! Too funny! An Etsy artist did the mockup for me after I saw her use it on “Just Married” signs!!!

I personally like the 2nd version better…it seems to “pop” a bit more. Something you might try is to maybe change at least the font on your names so that it breaks it up a bit. Also if you’re working on this in Photoshop, try giving an outer glow or an embossing to the flourishes on the edges to make them stand out a little more. Looks great though, good job 🙂

Looks good! Second version definitely. I would suggest tightening up the kerning though. Connecting the scripty letters will make it more readable.

I tried a bit of the embossing and all sorts o glows. I just can’t seems to get it to be a bit deeper or more real on the flourishes.
Any help on that would be helpful. I love Photoshop and there is always more to learn.
Thanks for all your opinions everyone seems to like the lighter version. I will message with the fonts more and see what I come up with.
U all are the best!

I like the second one better, style-wise.
I agree that say “her daughter” sounds a bit strange, but if everyone knows your family history then it shouldn’t confusing.
I would write down your FI’s last name. I’ve seen that often. It’s the girl’s first and middle name, and then the guy’s full name. At least, thats what I’ve seen.

I have our entire name on the invite. I removed last names due to some privacy forum laws

I’m not a fan of that sketchy leafy look and the swirly cursive.
I say pick a kind of hand writen font, or go with another decorative element. 🙂

@Sekceyes: Oh, OK cool. Most of the time I just seem them blacked out on the forum, so that’s why I was confused.
I would agree that the cursive is a bit much considering all the text. Maybe you could have your names in the swirly cursive and then something different for the rest of the text? That’s what I’m planning to do.
