@Miss Tattoo: See, I’d vote flying ninjas and zombies, but if I’d had it my way our invitations would have come in comic book form – personalized with us as the characters, of course.  However, my FI wants classy and elegant and so do my parents (and yes, I do too) so none of that. 

I say they look good – simple and straightforward.  I’d suggest to him to create a few different types of invites for different categories.  “Modern” “Elegant” “Classic” “Nerdy”  etc. so he can broaden his audience.  I’d love to see more simplistic designs for an “elegant” invite.

Perhaps he can also mock up some invitation samples with envelopes and some ribbons? (I personally love ribbons)

All and all I’d say it’s a solid start.

I would also encourage him to market some more simple, elegant designs as well.  As someone who does not like fussy, ornamental invitations I can promise you that simple, clean invites are hard to come by at a lower price point, and so I think that could be a good business decision for him.

They are super pretty!  With the first two the first thing I noticed was that the font seems…scratchy?  Like it’s not smooth like it is in the others.  I’m not sure if that makes sense?

I’d say they look like they have bit too much going on. In invitation design usually less in more – it makes them more elegant to have white space. Also tell him to give the text some room to “breath” and not set it so close to the borders and perhaps bump down the font size a bit.

I think if he can draw well (as you mentioned with the butterfly) then perhaps he can create custom illustrations for people. I think the butterfly would work better if it was smaller and had a smaller border.

My first thought was similar to camrie: They are a great start, but they look a tad overcrowded. 

P.S. ::giggles:: —-> maybe something funky with flying ninjas and zombies? ^_^

@aribari: It’s a legit niche, nowadays, I think! Lol, who knows – it could be lucrative.

 @Miss Tattoo: A suggestion for the second invitation if it’s not too forward: I like that dove grey color he choose.  In keeping with the simplistic and elegant suggestions, I’d have him remove the design entirely and have it a solid grey color.  I love the fleur-de-lee looking things and the big “&” sign between the bride and groom names so I’d keep that.  Maybe darken the border? With a nice white or black envelope that would make it a very simple and elegant design.

🙂 But he’s got a really good start – it’s a worthwhile idea to pursue!
