Hello! Please do me a favor and proof my invite & RSVP 🙂 A couple FYIs:
They will be printed on Cream or Pearl White stock (the pinkish creamish background color is a placeholder right now)
The invites will be 4×6 and will be matted on 5×7 dark blue metallic cardstock (the dark blue here is just for visualization purposes)
Still figuring out official response date and if we’re doing a website for RSVPs
We will have 2 versions of RSVPs – one for thoese where 2 guests are invited, and one for 1 guest invited
Let me know if any suggestions/changes etc.!
PS sorry if these files are enormous!

I like the soft pinks with the blue! I think they will look great when they are finished!

They are pretty. For some reason capitalizing husband and wife is bothering me but that may just be me.

I agree with miss narwhal- the capital “H” and “W” caught my eye. I can see why you would maybe want to do it, but grammatically, it is not correct.

@miss narwhal: @MrsTribo: @flyawaycricket Would you capitalize NEITHER the H or the W, or would you keep the H capital? Also, is the Capital T in Two thousand and thirteen okay?

@mmwar: these are the corrections I would suggest:
husband and wife (small caps)
two thousand and thirteen (all small caps)
Also just to make sure, those are exclamation marks on the RSVP cards after “can’t wait” & “miss it” as I can’t really tell 🙂
Those are the only changes I would make. Beautiful invitations.

As PP said, I would NOT capitalize husband and wife.
Also I would NOT capitalize the T in two thousand and thirteen
As far as the time, I ordered proofs of an invitation from an online company and they suggested I use five o’clock in the afternoon as it is not considered evening until 6 pm. So maybe you would want to look this up to see if you want to change it?

Thanks all, these are all super helpful siuggestions. I think I will adjust the captialization as suggested (no capital H, W, or T), and will change it to 5 o’clock in the afternoon.
One concern I JUST had – it says my name, then my fiance’s name, but then says as we become husband and wife. I know both orders are correct on their own, but obviously it is wrong respectively (my name is first, but i will be the wife). Doe anyone else think this is strange? We’ve gone through like 6 different sets of wording and i finally like this and don’t want to change it, but it just seems strange…

well, no one else here caught it, so there’s your answer probably.
If you plan to hang it on your fridge or something, you may want to update it, as looking at it all the time may drive you nuts 🙂 very pretty though, nice job!

@mmwar: That’s the first thing I noticed. I don’t think it’s technically wrong, but I’d personally put his name first.

I think PPs have had good suggestions, I just want to say props to you for mentioning the allergies AND the gluten free thing! I’m gluten free myself (diagnosed celiac 2011) and since I’ve gone gluten free eating out is always a scare for me. Glad to know you’re taking precautions so that all your guests feel safe enough to enjoy the foods you’ll be providing!

I don’t know that I have a great solution but I don’t like “Allergies or gluten free, please let us know”. It’s not grammatically correct. But I can see why you don’t want to write it out correctly which would be “If you have allergies or require a glten free meal, please let us know” or something like that. I would probably just say “Please let us know of any dietary restrictions”. But then you wouldn’t mention gluten free which one PP seemed to like. So I dunno…..

I have a comment..
The e on that angle makes me think every word with an ‘e’ in it is mispelled, and I don’t know why! I usually pick up typos really quickly when skimming through text, and the e’s set off my typo radar even though there weren’t any actual typos!
I’m not saying there’s anything wrong with that, I think your invitations look lovely! Just an odd observation and wondering if anyone else noticed that or if it’s just my brain acting strange!
