I’m trying to save some money by doing this myself, but I’ve found that I dislike anything I do lol.
The text under “Our wedding ceremony” looks weird in the picture I put up, but it doesn’t print like that–it prints straight and normal. Second, this might be printed on Kraft paper, but we haven’t decided for sure yet.
So, what do you think? What does it need? Is it too plain? I thought maybe a doily type thing on top, but I’m undecided.

I would recommend that you use a different script font, one that is more formal and elegant, to contrast better with your wonderful, small-cap font that you chose for your main text.
In my opinion, the script that you’ve chosen is not quite elegant enough. To give you an idea of the look I would suggest, I will post the sample invitation (not our actual names or locations) showing the fonts that my DH and I used for our invitation suite and our wedding programs.
I know that it’s not easy to see the words printed in the script font, because they’re hiding behind the ribbon. However, do you see what I mean? This font is a more regal-looking script, and the one you’ve selected looks a bit more like someone’s handwriting. However, if that’s the look that you prefer, then please do not allow my opinion to dissuade you.

I like it overall, but do agree that you should change the font.

I think they’re lovely just as they are. But I like a simple, clean look. I especially like the mix of fonts. Don’t change a thing!

Well, we’re going for a very casual, rustic feel, so that’s why I picked the one I did. I’ll definitely play around with the fonts some, though! Thank you both for giving me feedback! 🙂
@MrsRight: Thank you! 🙂

@anonymouspioneer: Well, if you love that script, then I would suggest you try making it one to two points larger (two may take up too much space), to help open it up a bit so that it has a stronger standing against the openness of the small caps. Try that, and it may go a long way toward addressing what I am perceiving as an inequity between these fonts.
