These are really nice! I noticed in the invite you have ” invite you join” instead of  ” invite you to join”. I’m not sure if that’s regional where you are, but to join is proper.

@iadornyou:  NP, it’s like that when you’ve looked at it too much! They’re really fun, I love the color:-)

“Due to the lodge being…” sounds a bit awkward, IMO.

I think this sounds better… “Because the lodge is a private weddings-only venue, all rooms must be reserved through the Bride & Groom.”

I like to capitalize Bride & Groom but I’m not sure if it’s grammatically correct.

I love all the different fonts… very fun!

I would break it up and leave some negative space to give the eye a break, it’s very busy looking.

@iadornyou:  i think are going to be really nice.  i love the colours.

the invite does look a bit busy.  there are at least 5 fonts.  maybe you can narrow that down to 3 but still utilize font size and upper/lower case for variation.

i agree with  @MrsBonJovi:  regarding the accommodations.  due to… sounds awkward.  i wouldn’t start a sentence with because either so i would change the wording to “The lodge is a private weddings-only venue, therefore, all rooms must be reserved through the Bride & Groom.”

i would also remove ‘enjoying your’ on the 5th line of the accommodation card.  just start that sentence with accommodations can be…  you already have ‘enjoy your …’ on the last line.

These are great! I just finished my pocketfolds (with 3 tiered inserts, nonetheless!) and I would agree that they are a bit busy. I would also encourage you to stick to a maximum of 3 fonts, and make sure that each of them is used for certain parts (e.g. I had a serif and sans serif font, with the serif always used for dates and our names, the sans serif always used for locations and online information)

 

I also really love your RSVPs and seriously considered something like this, until I heard how many people got genuinely confused by anything outside of the plain and simple traditional wording. It was very surprising to me that so many people could not figure out how to enjoy the fun of the unique RSVP wording! It may be something to think about when you consider whether or not you want to field strange questions about them or have to possibly follow up with a larger number of people come RSVP deadline.

ETA: “The lodge is a private wedding venue and…”
