Wow i hope you are printing these yourself. Otherwise it seems to be a really expensive, long and drawn out procedure, especially if they happen to spell a name wrong and it has to be handled by mail. Very pretty though! Good job.

@SaltedCaramel:  +1  This is my question too.

@beeconomist:  I don’t really understand why you would put the guests’ name on the invite.  Even if you print a new one for each guest, it just seems really weird to me.

I also think it’s a little odd how you’ve spelled out the date and time.  If you’re going for the more formal look, it should be “Saturday, the Nineteenth of July, Two Thousand and Fourteen, at Half After Four O’Clock.”  But I think the formal wording clashes with the informal/casual “Meant to bee, Bee our guest, etc.”  I’d choose a formal or informal style and then follow through with that same style throughout.

Your bee theme is so cute!  Second a PP’s change to how you did the date. I would take out the “such as directions and accommodations” part of the line directing people to your wedding website. It seems unnecessary. The bride’s name should go first, unless you’re a same-sex couple and then it doesn’t matter.  Sorry if you’re the groom and I misinterpreted!

Cute! I would update the script font to something a little more up-to-date though.

@beeconomist:  If you are writing both of the guests’ first names, then I believe the woman does go first.  This is both for if they have the same last name or different last names.

To change a font, I was use dafont.com. You download the font and it goes into your downloads folder, you double click on it and hit “Install” and then whaBAM, it appears in Microsoft word. I would also suggest updating your font to something a little more…ummm…don’t take this the wrong way, but “sophisticated” though I mean no harm. I just fear everyone will think what I thought when I looked at this which is that the script font you have is very common and makes your invitations look a little less formal, as everyone has seen and used that font before. I would definitely suggest a new script font.

@beeconomist:  What a fun idea. I like that you make an effort to personalize every invite.

@beeconomist:  I wouldn’t expect it to cut down on any confusion regarding who is invited and who is not.  That’s what the envelope is for.  If someone wants to be rude and invite a +1 when they weren’t given one, they’ll do so anyway regardless of whose name is on the invite.

As for the informal date, yes I believe you would type it out with numbers instead of spelling it out.
