  • poll: Do you think I should add more elements to the invitation?

    No, just refine this version!

    Yes, the corners does look a little empty

    @eocenia:  YES!!! Love the small caps you found!!  The only thing I want to ask is why you changed the script font you had originally posted, in the second example, above?

    The new script font you’ve chosen in this last attempt seems to lack the openness of the one you originally tried, and I like former example better.

    @eocenia:  In that case, I think it looks great! You should make matching reception cards etc. I wish I was this artistic.

    @eocenia:  i just picked one at random.

    http://www.dafont.com/adine-kirnberg.font

    dafont.com has some nice fonts =)

    but it depends on the paper as to your font selection. 

    also i gave a bit more white room around your design so that it can breath.

    i would recommend thinking about spacing with the text as for invites you would have to manually do this as enter and shift enter don’t always give accurate space.

    remember design is always about positive, negative elements and flow.

    also to convey a message.

    have fun!

    re: “invite you to celebrate their marraige”

    To me, it sounds like your are inviting guests to a reception but not the ceremony.

    @eocenia:  I’d go with something like “request the pleasure of your company at their marriage” or something like that. Just google for invitation wording and take something you like. Good sources are Crane & Co., Emily Post, Martha Stewart, Real Simple, and invitations websites (like Wedding Paper Divas).
