I like it, it looks pretty! If you’re worried about it being too squiggley, you could try taking out the four bubbled corners, and have it curve directly into the point (if that makes sense!).

The only thing I would say is to maybe add some text above the date. It looks kind of empty compared to the rest of the shape.

I love it! I agree about adding text above the date though, maybe add “Save the Date!” or something in the same color/font as “formal invitation to follow” to balance it 🙂 (even if you don’t I still think they’re awesome!!!)

I love it! Love the pic of you guys in the center, love the kindly deliver to text. I think you could send as is. SERIOUSLY. 🙂

However if you want to be super picky, “ever-important part” I think would be hyphenated. I doubt anyone would look too much at that though.

And maybe because you guys are in the park (about to stroll?) and are also using the word embark, you could mimic that movement in your phrase:

please join us as we embark on that adventure of a lifetime called marriage.

I will reiterate – even without those edits, I think this is a charming and creative STD! Looks great Miss Swedeypie!

The only thing I don’t get is that I don’t see your NAMES anywhere on there. Are they on the other side?

Everything else looks adorable and charming!

If the “kindly deliver to” is on the front, what are you planning to put on the back of the postcard?

Great point about the names!!! Yes, if those aren’t on the other side or whited out here for privacy, I’d add them.

I would change the wording to “Embark on our journey into Marriage.”

Really lovely STD’s though.

i am a super indecisive perfectionist too! A bit analytical too. i am a graphic designer.

I love everything BUT i think the whole swirl area with all the info could be a bit smaller. it looks too large in proportion to everything else. Also, the top of it has a gap. there is text filling all the spaces but the top, maybe you could put a swirl or something there the same color as the bottom text?

Like the photo a lot, and they type on the left is nice. Could you reduce the opacity of the white shape the type is sitting on? Play with different opacities of you can. Also like someone else mentioned, why is the delivery address section on the front of the postcard? The design would be much cleaner with it on the back.

it looks so large cause the side margin is smaller than the other side box where the address goes. maybe make the left info box small enough to equal the other side? i think that makes sense lol it would make the card more symmetrical

or even instead of making the box smaller, you could just move it and the photo over to the right a bit and it would look centered. ahhh here i go, being a perfectionist
