Ok so I originally paid a girl(who I thought had become a friend) who has her own graphics company money to create my invites and a bunch of other stuff for my wedding. A year later (well over a year) and I’ve only been able to get my STD’s from her, so I’ve decided to write off the money and do my own invites.
I am still back and forth on whether to do flat invites or pocket folds – which did you do think I should do? The colors are dark purple and green with hints of tea and gold.
Here is the main invite – Would love to hear what you all think about the invite – does anything need to be changed or tweaked?

I love it! I wish I had have said drinks, dinner and dancing rather than reception to follow. Sounded too stuffy for us. Love your colours too.

@Bella_and_Max: I love it! My only item: I find the fluffy writting a bit too hard to read and would search for a fancy but more legible version. I’m more of a stickler though as I work for the government assessing the “Accessibility” of documents and websites for persons with disabilities 🙂
Btw, given that you said something about STD and oyur wedding is in September, I don’t think you really need them at this point. So you can save the time/money on that 🙂

@Elky: +1 on the the purple font not being legible enough. there’s probably something that still has the effect you like that’s easier to read.

The design is very nice and I love the quote. However a couple of things seemed a bit off to me:
1) capitalization is very odd. Why capitalize “The” in “the twenty eights”, capitalize the word husband, but not wife? Why are drinks dinner and dancing are capitalized?
2) wording “share with them” is a little awkward. Share the day? share the joy? Maybe look at some invite samples to get an idea for wording?
Sorry if the criticisms are too much.

@annabelle_lee: No I needed to have these things pointed out and thank you. I didn’t realize the cap’s because of the font being all uppercase. I was just typing and not paying attention to what I capped and what I didn’t..lol Yikes!
I brought the quote down in size and raised the size in the venue name – that made a huge difference in being able to read it better.
As far as the share with them, I saw that wording on another invite and went with it. I thought the share with us line made it a little bit more intimate. We want our family and friends to share with us the day – I will have to go over that part of it again. Thanks so much for your suggestions!
