Sorry in advance for the horrible quality that the photos will be uploaded in.
Below are our DIY wedding invitations, RSVPs, directions insert, and (yes) the one card that kindly asks for money over standard gifts. Please DO NOT post negative remarks on here about it. I know that the topic is controversial, but For around here a lot of people put them in theirs and it’s ‘normal’. I’m simply asking to proofread everything before I print them and for any minor suggestions for if something needs to be changed.
Invitations will be mounted to a silver metallic matt. Envelopes are sapphire blue.
Thank you. 🙂

@erinbacher: Looks great. I only found one mistake. It’s in the paragraph below. You need to take away the to. So it says: Into our wedding wishing well” NOT into to our wedding wishing well. 🙂

@Sweetescape1976: Ah, yes! Thank you very much for taking your time to check it. 🙂

Also, normally you would not put the zip code on your invitation since it is a location and not for mailing, and you would spell out the state.

Technically, “Two Thousand and thirteen” is wrong. There shouldn’t be an “and.” And indicates a decimal point, so as it’s written now your date is 2000.13. A lot of people do write their dates that way, it’s just not the right way to do it (note: Emily Post agrees, http://www.emilypost.com/weddings/wedding-invitations-and-announcements/335-wording-formal-wedding-invitations).
In the third line of the directions you wrote “towards” the “s” is not necessary, this should just say “toward.”
They’re really pretty, too!

Naturally, when I try to proofread, everything looks weird/wrong to me. wtf.
People have pointed out things already, but I just wanted to say that these are really cute. Is it from Wedding Chicks?

Lose the “and,” it should just say “Two Thousand Thirteen”
Also, in your driving directions, I think it should say “1/2 mile” not “1/2 of a mile.”
This is all very technical stuff, though. There aren’t any blatant spelling erroror that I can see. They look good!

@luluvohn: Thank you! The ‘and’ was on my list of things I wasn’t absolutely sure about. 🙂 I’ll be correcting it.
@wabanzi: Thank you!
@vorpalette: Thanks. 🙂 Yes, it is. It was originally pink too.
@LilliePad: Thank you! The ‘1/2 mile’ was also on my list that I wasn’t sure about. Glad I got it sorted out!

@erinbacher: I looked at that one! I really hated the colors they used for the font, though–that browny-peach color. Bleh.

“We know reading this some may be offended
so we hope you’re not as this wasn’t intended”
I had to read this twice. I’d add some punctuation. Maybe make it:
“We know that in reading this, some may be offended
but we hope you’re not, as this wasn’t intended”
It seems easier to read that way, to me.
