@brittany_nicole: I think they are very cute except the mention of flatulence.

I like it! A few suggestions, take em or leave em 😉

  • I loved your bird motif in the programs, why not carry them through here and use them intead of the flowers? 
  • I’m not crazy about the >>  << beside your headings. What about using the horseshoes again or just leaving the headings as is?
  • Your font “a little about the happy couple” should be the same size as the rest of the body/plain font, it looks smaller/less bold than the rest for some reason? I love the font you used for your names/headings. For the rest of the body font I would use something sans serif maybe? That one just doesn’t do it for me. Experiment a little still I think.
  • “A last, first kiss” sounds awkward to me. I re-read it three times thinking it was supposed to say “at last first kiss”. Maybe you could say something about how/where you met here?

I love the idea of this! What an awesome idea!

If you’re printing it yourself, throw a little colour in there too!! It has great graphics, you can really make it pop off the page!

I love it!

One suggestion, on the header can you put “IN” under the horseshoe? I think that might be more balanced.

Also the line about “A last, first kiss” took me awhile to get at first too. I’d reword it.

But I love this idea!

@brittany_nicole: Ahhh okay clearly I’m not reading carefully. I thought this was for your reception not the rehearsal. Gotcha, totally makes sense, LOL! I did that for my rehearsal stuff too, I wanted it to be totaly different from my other wedding stationery. I think the flowers are a bit different in tone from the horse shoes. Maybe try to find something that feels a bit more rustic or heavier? I found this one.

Or this one:

I think if you’re going to go classy go classy all the way. If you’re going to go silly/funny go all the way. This is kinda floating around in the middle so it feels awkward to me. Does that make sense? I’d either cut the farting bit, or say something negative about the bride and make it all more silly.

As for the design, I’m not fond of the flowers on the sides. They don’t seem part of the whole. I like the basic idea and the fonts are nice. And I like the little arrows on the titles.

You could even say something like “His interesting sense of humor never fails to make you laugh”. People who know him would get what you meant without freaking out Great Aunt Betty, lol.

I like the thin version.
