@CarolF:  Are you going to have a reception card?  

I love the script, but “joyfully” doesn’t look right to me.  Kinda of looks like joylully to me.

@CarolF:   I initially read “joyfully” as “joyluffy”  – the rest looks good!

@CarolF:  its lovely – though i agree with others that the ‘joyfully’ doesnt look right. i read it as ‘joyfully’ but i dont think it looks right in that font. i would change it to the font that the rest of that bit is in and just have your names and the date in the swirly font.

other than that though it looks FAB!x

I really like it!  The only thing that makes me hesitant is the space for “Who will be attending?” on the RSVP card – I worry that you could potentially have guests writing in extra guests (something that before the bee I never would have imagined would ever happen, but apparently it does!).

that might be a regional thing, but to me a black cross (second page) indicates death rather than “church”…

if i were doing these, I’d either use a different color for the writing in the whole invitation (dark blue, dark green, dark red…whatever fits your color scheme)…

or maybe use a different symbol for church / religon (a church building? the fish / ichthys symbol? maybe a more elaborate cross?) 

but if the plain cross is common for that use in your circle, no problem.

@Kili:  I agree, the cross is a little sombre for me in combination with the black.

OP, I had trouble reading ‘joyfully’ too – in all honesty, I thought it was “Joyluffy’ and thought it was your family name before reading the comments above mine.
