i would change ‘can’t come’ to ‘wish I could’ or something like that.  

 

Other than that I think they’re beyond adorable and I like them so much more than your original!!

I prefer the original. The second seems too busy to me. The detailed font and detailed background is a little over the top. I love the way the letters pop out of the first design. Maybe just jazz up the main invite part?

I love the new design! It’s so cute!

The only thing that I noticed (and it’s more etiquette, I guess, and not paper, but…) is that you are using the phrase “honour of your presence” which is normally the wording for a church wedding. Is The Devonian Gardens a church?

It’s more common to use “the pleasure of your company” for a non-church wedding.

You might not care about this at all, so forgive me. WinkIt’s the only potential change I noticed.

in response to @OnceUponATime‘s suggestion – perhaps fade out the background a little more  on the invite under the text, the text does get a little lost.

I like the second ones better but agree with bibbleskip- change the “Can’t come!” to something else. Wish I could, Will celebrate from afar, something different. Other than that, they look great!

I agree with @OnceUponATime:.  I prefer the original. The new ones look too busy–and while they are adorable, they look more like a bridal shower or birthday party invite than a wedding invitation to me.

Also, if you’re having any out of town guests, I’d suggest putting a few key street names on the map. Otherwise, the map isn’t really helpful.

Love the new design!

 I don’t really like the font for the information in the first design and I think the first design is too plain.

@Pinkmoon:  i love your original invites but i also like your new ones, they’re cute.

what style of wedding are you having?  the original invites are more traditional.  the new invites are casual.  good for a low key, fun wedding.  they also look a bit more spring/summery.
