Are your inserts going to be vertical like that, as well? If not, you may want to make everything landscape.

That being said, your invitation looks LOVELY! If you printed that yourself, I think you could totally get away with printing it. If you’re worried about how it might look, you could always check out Kinkos or something and see what their rate is.

Nice work!

Lovely job! I would recommend printing the main part of the invitation on an ivory shimmer paper. I think it’d look gorgeous and would really make things stand out. Cards and Pockets does a great job printing, but you can also go to your local printer and it may wind up being cheaper actually and would be less hassle than printing at home.

Also, if I could make a suggestion- if you are adamant on doing some lower case lettering, pick a different font that is the same height. It looks kind of awkward with some of the words capitalized, and some of them not (ie: two thousand thirteen vs the line above it). Or you could just capitalize with what needs capitalizing, but I don’t think you should have some of the lines all lower case. Does that make any sense? I just got off of a heck of a long day at work so I may not be wording my thoughts correctly, lol.

@OnceUponATime:  Well lucky for you I had a design company for years, LOL! 

You’ll want to capitalize Two Thousand Thirteen as well as the next line except for “in the”. Because those aren’t proper nouns, they aren’t capitalized. 

“Marriage” and “children” should also be capitalized.

As far as looks, I think as long as the pink is a solid color, it’d look so Fairytale-esq with the main invitation shimmer!

I think its beautiful as it is!

if you want to save money – I think cutting costs from the invitations budget is a great way to go. there are better ways to use your money in the wedding e.g dress, reception etc.

I myself am going down the DIY route. if your invitation looks pretty (Which i think it does) – use it and send it for printing yourself!
