Hey, Bees! I posted a few possible invite designs awhile ago, but then I went back to the drawing board/Adobe Illustrator :).
We’re having an art deco themed wedding, if that helps! All the invites will slip into the pocket thing with gold scrolling on the bottom that’s in one of the pics. I appreciate any and all feedback, thanks! Oh–and if you click on Wedding 3, it shows pics of them with the gold scrollwork stuff.

Hey, I recognize those fonts! 😉 I voted for C by accident–meant to vote for G.

I love this – but I do not think that the gold scrolling fits with it at all. Love love love choice E, though. I’d ditch the gold scrolls or find something that fits better with the clean, angular lines of the art deco designs.

You’ve been busy, good work on the new designs! I like all three new designs, I think you’ve captured the style really well. My personal favourite is E, I like how the two arches frame the text.
As you are inserting the invite into the golden scroll I think you should go with a design that is on the simpler side, the scroll work is pretty eye catching so you don’t want something that fights with the scroll work for attention. For this reason I’m not voting for F as it’s a larger design.
Design G is great too but it doesn’t get my vote because the overall shape is sort of square-ish which doesn’t go so well with the scroll work. But as someone above said, if you were to change the scroll work for something else I think any of these 3 new designs would look fantastic.
Are you planning on using this design elsewhere in your wedding? Eg for programs, menus, table numbers, favour tags? If so, I think you should consider which one of these designs is the most versatile and easy to adapt for other printed material.

All look great, but I liked E the best.
I’m also designing art-deco style invites, and I was wondering which fonts you used to make these?

@nicolethegrrr8: Hey! I used Andes for the body font and DecoCaps for the capitals :). The “-TO-” is Betty Noir.
Market Deco is a skinnier version of Andes, so you might want to see if you like that one, too. They’re all from Dafont.com :).
@The Unsuspecting Bride: Thanks for the help, I’m considering switching the gold :).
