Looks good, but personally I wouldn’t use two cursive fonts- I’d change the info bits to a non-cursive font and just leave your names and the reception to follow bit in the cursive.

I think they look fine. I wouldn’t make any proofreading changes.

@future mrs Q:  I agree with the prior poster of choosing two fonts that complement each other. Also, you will want to remove the word “and” from the year.

there’s some dispute over two thousand and twelve vs two thousand twelve.  I prefer it without the “and” though.

@Brielle:  Haha, I was just about to make the same comment about the “and” in two thousand and twelve.  You have taught me well, @Brielle!

 

@ememkay:  Yeah, technically you shouldn’t use two script fonts on your invitation.  For ease of reading, you should try and choose a simple, non-script font for the body of your invite.  But hey, I think they look really good, so its up to you if you want to change the font.  Nice job!

I agree on maybe using a simpler font for non-name wording for easier reading. I don’t know if it’s possible, but I would probably shrink the design in the corner to get the swirl off of your name.

 

Very pretty though!

“two thousand twelve” should be the way it is written, with no ‘and.’ Other than that they look great!

@hisgoosiegirl:  You bring up an excellent point that I failed to make and subsequently wished I had. @ememkay: , I think if you try making the change to a non-script font for the main portion of your text, as many of the bees have suggested, you may discover that the entire text block may be able to be lowered, since you won’t have all of those dramatic ascenders and decenders taking up space in between the lines of your text.

@coffeegal85:  🙂  Thanks! And you already knew quite a bit on your own and have learned quite well! 🙂  By the way, did you see that I posted another comment and pic on your thread from last night?

These are very pretty, love the colors. I agree with the PPs with changing the 2 script fonts to just 1, and changing the year to two thousand twelve. I’d also omit the “on” before the date.

I agree with what everyone else has contributed. I find the two script fonts a little difficult to read, but I LOVE the color combination and overall design
