I love these! Just a suggestion for the main invite to tie in the other colors I’d put your bigger in the pink color. I think it’d tie all the cards together!

@FutureMrsClayshulte:  I really like the overall design, but honestly, it is hard to read the actuall invite because it is all italicized. It is a little overwhelming.

If you haven’t sent it to print yet, I would consider changing it to non-italicized and maybe a sans serif font (for the third image with all the details). You could leave key parts italicized (i.e., names, date, etc)

I only offer my opinion from a graphic designers perspective, so it’s just a suggestion ๐Ÿ™‚ My Fiance, who is also a graphic designer suggested varying the font styles on the main invitation as well. Perhas 2-3 max.

I agree, it’s overwhelming. They look nice otherwise though!

Yeah, the actual invite is kinda hard to read, with the italics and it all being one color.  Maybe put your names in coral, and play around with the font?  Besides that, they look great.

You’re on the right track – I really think you might want to consider everyone’s recommendations about the invitation being difficult to read. I would redo the invitation and use the same font you used for the website on your info card and only use the script font when using your initials, people’s names and the date/time. I would also change whatever you use for the script font to be the pink color. I would also try to space out the ampersand and make it bigger between the initials.

If you make those changes, you will be surprised how much it cleans it up! Hope that helps!

@FutureMrsClayshulte:  I agree with everyone. I think you should keep the fonts the same and the one used on your information card is much easier to read. I think they look gorgeous though!
