I’m not too sure about the font. Took me a while to figure out that your name is not Ceciha! lol

Not feeling the name font either.  I know they will know your names since they are your guests, but I also had a bit of a hard time reading it.  I know you changed the last names, but if either of you have first or last names that start with a D, I would definitely change it.  The capital D is very hard to make out.

The two fonts don’t seem to match. How about something cleaner?

I love the font for your names. Nice work!

I’d put the “&” between the two names not at the end of yours, just to make it look cleaner.

Both fonts kind of weird me out. Also, it’s the marriade/wedding of BRIDE to GROOM, not “and” because “and” on a wedding invitation means “who is already married to.”

Its nice..a little too plain for my taste..I would add some color or pattern or a picture or something..but if you are going for a clean and simple look then I think with a change of font it will be perfect..and like bridedownunder said I would move the “&” to be in between your two names.

Okay, a few more notes.

  • Put the “to” (not “and”) on its own line in the non-name font
  • be consistent on formality of date; if you are spelling out “seventh”, it should read “seventh of March”
  • the “O” in “O Clock” looks like Q, and anyway, it’s O’Clock.
  • again on formality: don’t use P.M. Either leave that off since it’s obviously not at 5am or put five o’clock in the evening
  • city and state go on their own line
  • Is there a period after “seventh”? take it out if there is
  • again on formality, spell out California
  • I’d add day of the week, so like: Saturday, the seventh of March/two thousand thirteen/five o’clock in the evening/someplace/city, state

You really just need to be consistent about the formality. If you are spelling things out and writing out numbers, you should use no abbreviations at all.

One last thing, why would you print these now if the wedding is in March? You won’t be mailing them until late December or early January.

EDIT: Oh, or is the wedding in September as per your byline and the March 7th thing is place holder?

I second everything mrsSonthebeach said- need to be consistent.  Invitations are kind of like an equation, where things are plugged in place.

I like the smaller font (you got it from DaFonts, right?) but it doesn’t match the names font.  If you’re committed to the name font, pick a different font for the info.
