I love the way you worded the invite, I just don’t like that your FI’s face is covered with all the words in the middle… but that’s me being nitpicky… 🙂

Kazza:  yeah me too! First thing I notice was OP’s face and I had to look carefully to find her FI 🙁

Like the wording but yeah the fact that the letters cover his face could be a deal breaker.

WestToBlan:  yes, it’s a deal breaker, can’t use a pic and have your FI’s fave covered up. Sorry. you can make the font of the reception info at bottom smaller and move all the text down starting after your names so your names will frame your faces.

I would take the adults only please off the invitation.  When you address the invitations, and don’t invite kids, that’s how people know.  Also, you can spread it by word of mouth.  I would not want that wording on my keepsake…JMO…..


I would just say: Reception to follow and try to move all the wording down so you can see your FI face.

Also, you could remove the “Because it’s never too late to live happlily every after.”

The more words you remove, the more you can play with the picture.  I, personally, don’t think that adds anything, but I prefer very sinple, classic wording….

I agree with most other comments here already.

The “Because it’s never too late to live happily every after..”

– Makes me think something tragic happened, or that you two have had a rough time getting to this point or something…but it’s “not too late” …it just kind of gives me more of a negative thought than a positive one, wondering about what happened…when it could be nothing.

The photo

-Also distracting to me. Personally I’d just leave it out. I think I piece of ivory cardstock instead would look elegant. Otherwise, I’d move around the text to make the photo work better.

“Adults Only”

-Don’t have a big problem with this, but it could just as easily be left off.

I like how you worded it. If after reading replies you aren’t so sure to leave ” happily ever after”, how about instead “to believe in fairytales” but I personally like them.

WestToBlan: I might remove the picture all together (unless you’re in love with it). Instead, add a design/graphic. That will make it look a little more elegant without you having to adjust text to not cover his face. Also, adding in another font could spice up the wording.
