It is very pretty! A couple of things jump out at me, though. First, why is company in brackets? It kind of looks like a prompt to personalize text on a form just a little bit. Second, is there any easy way to take the centres of your a’s, o’s, e’s and numbers and glue them in place? I can’t actually tell what verse you are quoting.

I kind of wish there was something Colourful in there as well, maybe an accent colour in the ribbon? Or keep the polka dot piece and glue down the RSVP card on top of it as a sort of border? And the one last thing of me being suuuper picky and trying to come up with something to point out – wouldn’t it be super cute if there were a little bird or something holding up half a heart towards the bride, that would be hidden by the groom’s flap on top?the bird and other heart half could be a coloured bit, like a little blue bird of happiness.

They look really amazing!!! I agree with you about the [company] part too.

One thing I would change is the border of the page with all the details. It looks kind of kid’s birthday party like that and I think a straight edge would look better. Or if you really want a jazzy border, have a different color underneath the details page that has the special border and have the details page be plain. Hopefully that make sense…

LittleDove:  I figured it would look plain which is why the edge of color might be nice? I would think the same pink as the accents on the invitation: brown folder thing, thin pink sheet with the scalloped edge, cream invitation sheet with the straight edges.

If you really just want a different edge pattern then I would suggest the one that’s like this link:
