Is this wedding invite too boring? I personally love it but my FI thinks it’s boring. You know how most men don’t really care about the wedding details? Yeah, that isn’t my FI. He cares too much and it is kinda driving me nuts! I want something simple and elegant, that won’t look dated. FI doesn’t know what he wants because he doesn’t actually get involved until I have something close to being finalized and then it’s all ‘wait, what about this or this?’ UGH no. Help bees.
THe light blue colour of writing I changed to a dark grey, and the peach is more bright. So it isn’t so hard to read.
To spice this invite up, I was going to wrap each invite with lace and tie it with either ribbon or brown rope stuff.. I can’t think of what it’s called. And have the blue colour writing in dark grey and have accommodations card in grey and Reception card in peach. Any input would be awesome.

The design isn’t boring at all, but the muted colors might be giving him that impression. I’m personally a big fan of having lots of striking contrast, so that would be the one thing I would change. But if he really doesn’t actually care that much about wedding stuff in general, and these colors (with gray) are your favorite, I don’t think there’s anything wrong with it. He’ll probably forget about this small detail when some other one comes up. I would just make sure it actually prints bright/dark enough to be easily legible, because on my computer screen it’s a little hard to read.

It’s classy! I love it. Not boring at all. 🙂

Pretty! But I would make the colors a bit darker. Just because it doesn’t stand out too well as is. Definitely not boring!

@Taeyers: agree about the colours, I switched the light blue with a dark gray and the peach is more bright. Thanks for your input!
@tallierand: thank you so much!

@raisedonrobbery: awe! I don’t think its too boring. It’s very clean and all the colors and different font sizes make it very interesting but still classic.
dont listen to your FI… or if you want to jazz it up more, make some envelope liners or personalized stickers to seal the envelope or maybe look into calligraphy for the addresses.
i think this is exactly what you’re going for and to be honest, I’ve seen more boring ones! lol

I also would make the colors darker to make them stand out a little bit more. Right now I think it blends into the white background just a little bit too much. Beautiful job!
