Getting ready to print, address, and mail out our commitment ceremony invitations, just can’t decide which to use. Also need help with wording. The ceremony and reception will be outdoors and I don’t wish for guest to come in jeans (because it’s tacky) or heels (due to the grass). I will be providing a sandals basket just in case but would the correct wording be ” garden “wedding”attire”? (Everyone coming knows it’s a commitment ceremony but we all call it a wedding.)

I like the second one better (the one on the right). The pink one with the birds looks…cheesy for lack of a better word. I love the fun wording on the invitation, and the one on the right seems to continue the “fun” theme.

The one on the right is simple, clean and cute. I don’t like the one on the left.

Right side. You should consider changing the wording.
Instead of “dirty jokes”, just put “jokes”. I don’t think “dirty jokes” belongs on ANY wedding invitation. It’s your wedding so if it makes you happy I guess, but it makes me cringe. The invitaiton is so cute and lighthearted otherwise, I think it ruins it.
Also, “Garden Wedding Attire” is sufficient. Including “(No Jeans or Heels)” is completely unnecessary. I’m not sure about the use of “Garden Wedding Attire” itself, but definitely exclude the “No Jeans or Heels” bit.

Thanks ladies. I really loved the right one but my sister said it wasn’t a wedding invitation. I think it goes with the “fun” I’m going with and very light hearted. And as for the wording, its very “us” and all my family and friends get that. But I see where your coming from. I really didn’t want to add the no jeans or heels. I will take it off and just add it to our wedding site. Thanks again!

@MrsPocahontas: I definitly vote right.
To make it look more like a wedding invitation maybe include little hearts in the banner on top? A heart-garland may convey more of a wedding theme, won’t it?
Or maybe make the birds with the heart a little bit bigger?

Some girls (like me) will always turn up in heels to a wedding. I went to a fab outdoors-y wedding a couple of months ago and carefully picked out a pair of chunky wedges so that I wouldn’t sink into the grass/mud 🙂 The “garden wedding attire” is plenty, although I wouldn’t mention clothing at all on the invitation.

At first I was going to say the right side because it was clean and simple but it is kinda typical (in my books). I hate flowers and birds but I love the way the untraditional wordings play off of the cheesy, traditional invite. I love it. I had to smile.

@tiff-tiff-tiff: +1, I love the humor of this invite as a whole.
