Hey Bees, could you all give our invitation set a look and let me know your opinions? I just want to make sure we aren’t missing important info. Our wedding is Halloween themed and all the cards will be printed on a brushed burnt orange cardstock just fyi. Thanks Bees!!
I’ll be adding a map to this later..
This one is still pending some info yet 🙂
and finally the RSVP card. I forget to add a return by date and options for entrees so those will be on there eventually.

This might be a typo, your weddingbee date says halloween, and your invitations say November, and costumes in November? Not sure if it’s supposed to be like that, or if this was a mistake.

@ashe89: November on the cards is right. We are planning to be offically married on Halloween but it falls on Wednesday this year which probably isn’t a good day to have a celebration on. So we opted to celebrate the weekend after Halloween.

A few notes:
-the address to the park is W5785 Lake Drive? Just want to double check on that- I’ve never heard of a house number with a letter in it.
-Is it common in your group of friends/family to list registry information on an invite? In some circles that is a major no-no.
-Some of your wording and sentence structure seems a little off to me. It very well may be just personal preference. If you want me to list everything let me know, but here is a quick example of what I would do:
A block of rooms have been reserved at the
Seattle Inn and Suites
Reserve as part of the NAME party for room rates of $79.99, exclusive of tax.
Something like that. I prefer more formal (but not stuffy wording). I’d also use a more traditional font.
But I know since you’re doing a Halloween theme you probably want things to sound/look more whimsical. 🙂

If you are going for a very non-traditional wedding, then this is great!

I would take out the registry info, most people frown upon that. Just put it on your website.

@heliabel: Totally makes sense! I wasn’t sure what day of the week Halloween falls on, so that makes sense now!

I think there’s a typo in the first sentence? Should is say “and FALL into mutual weirdness”?

It looks fun-is there a typo in the quote? Is it supposed to say all or fall in the second line? I don’t get it.

I think it looks great! On the orange paper it’ll be perfect. My only comment is that I don’t think you need to put what time dinner will be served. Unless you think some people will only be coming to the reception?

@September29: thanks for the review. It is very common to have letters and numbers in the address where I live. I didn’t realize it was different elsewhere, that’s a neat fact.
I think I’ll work on the wording a little too now that you mention it. My fiance has had most of the wording control and debating with a creative writing major can be tedious haha.
@missrobots: @fivemonthsnotice: that is most certainly a typo, thanks for that catch
In general our whole thing is very informal and our families are very laid back. It’s been common to have the registries on invites in my family, but I’ll talk to our moms some more about it. It is also super common in my family (and family to be) to only attend the dinner and not the ceremony.
And yup we having a very untraditional wedding 🙂 but that’s how we are. I’m trying to step on too many toes with this type of event but I’m hoping everyone invited keeps in mind that we aren’t anything remotely close to formal or traditional couple. With this in mind though, I’m still up for hearing any traditional critques because my goal isn’t to seriously offend people either.
