    I think it’s cute! I have no suggestions on wording because I’m not sure what is appropriate and such. (Hopefully soon I’ll be making my own invites and will have to find out!) Anyway, the only thing I see is that I’m assuming that Churct is supposed to be Church. But I’m also guessing that’s just a placeholder for the actual name of the church so you’d prob notice the typo anyway when you put the actual name there 🙂

    @imagine8204:  i like them.  the large, thick ribbon (as shown in the inspiration) really adds to the look.

    Cute! I’m in a similar boat- I haven’t found anything I like enough so I’ve made probably 20 different versions of our invite. Everytime I end up with one I finally like that fits our “vibe”, Fo doesn’t like it.  We’re both super picky, I guess!

    @imagine8204:  these look great! I’m hoping to DIY my invites too! The only comment I have is about the parents names – I think you should do them the same (if both sets of parents are still married). So either Mr. Don Yetzel and Mrs. Elaine Yetzel and Mr. James Fire and Mrs. Jane Fire or Mr. and Mrs. Don Yetzel and Mr. and Mrs. James Fire. Otherwise great job!

    I love them!  Always been a fan of that color scheme.  And i love chevron stripes.  Looking at your invite makes me smile.

    I think it’s so cute! On the invitation, I would spell out “avenue” and “District of Columbia”. I also don’t totally understand the line “Share and celebrate the marriage…” Maybe just “celebrate the marriage”?

    @imagine8204:  Very cute! I’m just a little confused about why the first set of parents has both names and the second set is Mr. & Mrs., but maybe I just don’t know enough about invitations. I would second the idea of writing out Avenue and DC.

    @imagine8204:  Lovely!!  I’m not crazy about the font, but that’s just personal preference — I prefer more straight-ish to round-ish.  🙂
