It looks beautiful. My only comment is that the white text is kind of hard to read against that particular shade of blush. I would suggest either a whiter white for the text or a darker blush for the background.

on my computer screen at least it’s a little hard to read. Does it look better in person, or can you darken the peach background color (so the white text stands out more?) Other than that I like it!

@futuregattman:  I’m just throwing this out there… how much have you thought about wording? I realize the standard is “request your honor” but if you want to you can get creative about it and convey to your guests what you expect. If you want it to be very formal etc. then “request your honor” is great. But you can also jazz it up with “invite you to celebrate” or something similar to tell your guests that you expect them to have an awesome time and fill the dance floor at your reception. There are so many ways to word invitations to tell your guests what you want, if that is something you want to consider.

The month should be capitalized, bu otherwise, I think they’re really cute!

Request the honor of your presence is reserved for weddings in a house of worship. It should say “request the pleasure of your company”.

 

I would also remove the “on” before Sunday and the “at” before six o’clock in the evening.

I would also capitalize “Together with their families”

@futuregattman:  the names in brown look good, that or any other darker colour, makes the most important part stand out. Lovely!

@futuregattman:  Fair enough. It does make it less forml. But if you’re going to not capitalize the month, I wouldn’t capitalize the day. I also wouldn’t use “request the honor of your presence”. You can also remove the “in the evening” because nobody is going to show up at the break of dawn.

I like the first one of the updated ones. 

Is there a chance that you can go slightliy darker with the shade of the whole card? 

I think a darker hue might make the white easier to read.

This invitation is great. Does it has any color from your wedding color theme? If so, It will perfect!

I like the first of the revised batch, too. The lace detail is beautiful! I also think you should go a shade darker on the background. It should make the white lettering stand out. As of now, it’s still hard to read. 

The other way to fix it might be to choose a thicker or bolded font for the white lettering.

I like the revised version. I think you definitely do need to do a test print to see if the white text is legible against that peach background. And ask someone old (not ancient just older). As their eyesight won’t be as good as the younger whippersnappers. If you find that the white type is getting lost, you could choose a heaver weight (medium, bold). I like your names in brown.

One change I would suggest is to capitalise the begining of each line and all nouns. But that’s just my perference. All lower case is not my cup of tea.
