Hey there and welcome to Weddingbee! Your invite suite looks great. I especially love the invitation itself and the RSVP. I love the yellow on grey!

Just a couple of comments:

FYI, most brides choose the English spelling “honour” to go on a wedding invitation although both “honor” and “honour”  are correct.  

I would spell out the time of the reception “at six o’clock”  just as you did for the ceremony time.  

I’m not a big fan of fill in the blank type RSVP cards, but I know some people consider them to be a necessary evil!   

Otherwise, congratulations and best wishes on the upcoming wedding!

They look nice.  I would remove the dash as well as the word “and”  in “two-thousand and fourteen”

That shade of yellow is not doing it for me at all. It’s WAY too bright. IMO, it would look much better, with that blue and grey, in white.

Beautiful!!! I’m not a huge fan of the bottom font on the invitation. The rest of the invitation is so graphic and artsy and that font seems a bit utilitarian. But I love the color and design of everything!

I’d spell out 22nd since you did for everything else

2014 should be two thousand fourteen

I’d spell out 6 o’clock, again since you did elsewhere

Personally I find the leading on the actual invite a bit tight, but that’s my personal preference.

There’s a bit of eye-trickery going on with the blue color.  I’m sure that they’re all actually the same color blue, but because they’re on different backgrounds people’s eyes will see them as different colors.  On your ceremony invitation, I think you need to make the font darker and on on the reception invitation I think it needs to be lighter.

If you’re doing the reception name and address in all caps, I would do the church name and address in all caps, as well.  I personally don’t like including the hotel pricing on the invitation, but that’s just my preference.

Overall I think they look great!  Love your color scheme!

@MrsTVLover:  +1

Also agree with TGold about not including price information on the invitations and on keeping the font consistent on the ceremony and reception cards.

@Westwood:  +1 bingo

and as Vorpalette said– they yellow is too bright for me (although it could be computer issues and not the way you intend for it to print)
