    so i’m a graphic designer, and these aren’t bad! i would maybe change your fonts, everything kind of blends together a bit

    shannonheadley :  They look fab! We are also doing our own STD’s and invites (because no one will care what they look like except for me, and no one has to know we printed them at Staples).

    I LOVE the invitations. The wooden panel background really makes it look professional.

    The STD’s look great as well, I just don’t care for the scroll-y things on the top of the photo. Does it look too blank without them?

    shannonheadley :  I think they look nice, but I would blur out your last names and the address of your wedding for privacy purposes.

    I love both but think you could use some nicer fonts on the invite to make it more professional looking. It’s nice but very casual as is.

    I don’t love the way your names are placed on the invite. It makes it look like it says “Shannon Ryan and Shuyler Headley”

    Looks great, my only suggestion is to change the way your names are arranged, unclear which are the last names – is it SR&SH or SS&RH?

    I agree with djbeats, you might want to have Shannon Shuyler on one side and Ryan Headley on the other since that ampersand is so large. I’d also make it non-italic as it looks like its being stretched.

    Overall, I’d make the fonts a little smaller so it brings everything in from the edges. Right now it’s feeling really tight to the edges and I think it will look a lot neater and also be safer print-wise if you give everything some more breathing room

    I think they’re nice! But I agree with the others regarding the way your names are placed. I completely read them wrong.

    They look very nice. I don’t understand “save the date” cards though. Isn’t sending invites out a few months in advance enough? That’s all I’m doing. Do people expect more notice than that?

    nykkee :  

    It depends. Save the dates are often sent for guests who have to buy airfare. Invites usually goes out 3 months before the wedding and airfare can be quite expensive by then.

    The paperless post does emailed save the dates (and they have free options!) If budget is a concern.
