    I like where you are going with this!  The one thing that i really like in the first invite that you didn’t use was how the text lined up with a left orientation after your names and with the names pushed out a little more.

    I think I like the font in the first one better, but otherwise it looks great

    Think it looks good, I do not like the font though.

    In addition to the font orientation and style, I would narrow the trunk o the tree if you can, it looks rather unnatural as it is.

    I would also narrow the tree trunk slightly.  I would also either add more grass or eliminate what you have.  Tree top looks great!  Are you going to mention FI’s parents on the invite (“son of….”)?

    Very cute!  You shouldn’t capitalize the words at the beginning of each line, though, unless that line begins a new sentence.

    @Tigrrlily04:  I think that font is cute for you names, but I would choose a different one for the other text of the invite. 

    I really like the feel of your invite, but the color is throwing me off. I think it should all be in greyscale or you should add a punch of color in the tree – even if it is subtle, like a muted green or brown. 

    Your leaves on the tree look great, but I would taper the trunk of the tree a little at the top and thin it out. The proportion of tree leaves to trunk is just a tiny bit off. 

    I just want to claify that they look really nice now – just giving you some critiques to make them perfect!

    I like what you have so far – but a few changes I would make is to make the trunk of the tree a little skinnier (like others have suggested) and to make the tree top not so full…..  Other than that – keep up the good work!

    I like them, but would play around with the font a little to find the perfect one.

    I would try right-justifying it to see how it looked.  The centered text doesn’t look quite right to me at the moment.  Also, too many words are capitalized.  It should probably be something like this:

    Mr. and Mrs. John Doe
    request the pleasure of your company
    at the marriage of their daughter

    Jane Marie


    Bob Doe

    Saturday, the second of June
    two thousand and twelve
    at six o’clock in the evening

    Dinner, dancing, and celebration to follow!
