    I like the 2nd one, not because the first is less formal, but because I like the simplistic feel of the 2nd invites.

    I think the second invite suite is very soft and more formal. There is something really natural about the water color painted shells…It looks organic and yes more formal.

    Hope that helps, lol Wink

    Maybe use one for the invite and one for the STD? I’ve never seen the exact same “paper” used for both…

    I definately think you should do the STD from the first and the invite from the second.  I think the invite from the first is a little too informal and I don’t think that invites and STD need to match perfectly.

    Oh, the second one is so beautiful!  Definitely a better choice since you don’t want to convey a super casual feel.  The first one is cute but too casual in my opinion.  The second one is a touch more elegant.

    I agree with @mcnetn3. I think that you shouldn’t have matchy mathcy STDs and invites. I like the second design better…definitely more elegant. Good luck!

    ooh…well I guess I’m the ‘odd bee out’ in my pick. hehe.

    I looked at the 1st one and felt it was nice w. the color choice and not too ‘cutesy’ at all. Then I saw the 2nd one and felt it a little jarring, maybe b/c of the vast difference in color palette that I wasn’t expecting? Hmm…maybe it’s something about that particular seashell look (dark colors and the way they are specifically free hand drawn that I don’t care for.)

    However, I think it depends on the color palette your going for too. Perhaps if you like the lighter color palette in the 1st one….go w. more ‘elegant’ seashells pattern??

    Don’t know if that was a help or not..but just my opinion..hehe. Good luck! 🙂
