I would take the RSVP information off the front and I would repeat the wedding website, just in case.

I think aesthetically there might be one too many fonts. Can you use the same font the date is in for your names/initials at the top? Or vice versa? I agree with PP abut removing the RSVP stuff from the front.

Charliejeorge :  Top one gives more fun/quirky vibes, bottom looks a tad more classy and elegant. Both lovely, I’d go with the one that reflects you as a couple and the day you envision more! I actually think the other font (for the details, the one that’s in caps) lends itself to the top one better. If I wanted to go with the bottom one I would probably pick a serif font for the rest. Sorry, I’m now going into full on design mode ๐Ÿ˜‚

I actually disagree with PP, I would keep the RSVP on the front. People need this part spelling out to them! They look lovely.

If you don’t have an attachment to the gold foil color, maybe consider doing the foil in silver instead to match the back theme. I’d actually put the picture on the front and leave all the details on the back, just a suggestion.

Charliejeorge :  Sorry, a serif font is one whereby the letters have the little flicky flourishy bits, like Times New Roman. Eg:

I am a designer, but not a graphic designer – but I like to think I know my way around a layout ๐Ÿ˜‰ 

First off, your updated invite looks far better than the original you posted. 

I would bring the bulk of the text in a few mm, your text is too close to the edge of the page. 

Personally, I would keep the top font “Jodie and Cole” in the fancy cursive font you’ve used – but do not use it again in any other part of the invite. For example, the date and rsvp is currently the same or similar font. – your title should have its own font. 

Just my two cents ๐Ÿ™‚ Looks good though.

Charliejeorge :  honestly, the amount of people who won’t pay attention to the back until it is too late! I say do yourself a favour and pop it back on the front.
