I think it looks very nice and well put together. <br />the only thing i might play around a little more is the tree on top: at the moment it looks somewhat christmas-y. Maybe less so if you use a different color (brown?) or a different shape? (or maybe just skip the tree on top alltogether and make the tree area at the bottom a bit bigger)

I’d add a second tree, on the top, to balance the 2 intiitals. I’d also suggest making larger postcards – however large you can get and still use a postcard rate stamp. I got an invitations witha  small, flimsy postcard, and I was worried they’d get lost in the mail; they also wasted their money by putting regular postage on it.

gillykat824:  I really like what you’ve done! Very clean and straigtforward. The only thing that could be changed is the lone tree at the top…it just seems rather big and sticks out a lot. Maybe adding another tree like pp suggested would help, or going with two birds instead or something. Minor detail, the invite looks great!

I like the design of the invitation and it looks as though that will be very fitting with your venue! I have some comments about the wording though. Sorry if this sounds uber critical but you asked for opinions so I hope this is helpful.

I think you need some wording that lets people know they are actually invited – I know it should be obvious but so far what you have is an announcement, not an invitation. Also, perhaps this is just my British perspective but I wouldn’t actually be sure you were getting married at all with the wording “pledge their love as one”. I would wonder whether you were planning some kind of ceremony to declare your love without actually getting legally married.

If you love the wording as it is then keep it – just wanted to flag some potential confusion, especially for older guests. Since sending out our invitations I have discovered the older generation is more traditional than I realised! (We requested RSVPs via our website and loads of people have send hand written cards to our parents instead!)

hope this helps and I’m sure the finished product will be great.

I think the top badger is totally adorable; not sure if I’d chose it for a wedding invitation though. But if you and FI love it, go for it. (If not, maybe some deer if FI isn’t fond of a flower or a bird?)

Your RSVP date is very early.  You have it as June 1st for an August 15th wedding.  That is 6 weeks before the date.  6 weeks is when invitations should be going in the mail, not the date they have to reply by.

In terms of design they are lovely.
