I have been looking through Etsy and couldn’t find one that really called out to me, so I designed my own. But there is something off about them, and I can’t put my finger on it.
Please give me honest opinions and helpful suggestions!
[ETA suggested changes]

I like the different fonts it makes it fun. I also like how you have things broken up and its not uniform however I think the Parents names should have a better focus. They are importnat people in the wedding too. Those are just my opinions. 🙂 good job on the creativity

@somerrae: On the first part, I’m not a fan of the thick border around your initials.
Other than that some of the fonts may not work perfectly together, but the long ones with capital letters, keep! I love that font.
Also, welcome to MS in July! 😉

I looove them!! My only critique would be that with the font on the front, I couldn’t tell what your name was until I looked at the second photo. But that’s probably not going to be an issue for your guests :).

@GoldStar: The border was getting to me too. I like the idea of the square in the center, but it looked odd with no border. Maybe a thinner border?
MS is going to be… an exciting adventure. But thank you!

The font you’ve used on the front for your names is odd – I can read your second name and your partner’s name perfectly, but it’s rendered your first name into a big line of squiggles. I do like the fonts you’ve used on the back, except the bottom right corner, which I think is the same as the font on the front?
I also am not the biggest fan of the thick border around the initials. I’m also wondering if you’ve thought of filling in the white space with another shade of the colours you’re using?

Personally I think that the font choices overall just aren’t great. They are hard to read and don’t vibe well. I’m am.n avid font lover but sometimes a simple and straightforward font is a better choice. Just my two cents.

@somerrae: Thinner, or, maybe a patterned edge… I love the concept of your program.
Yes, that is one way of putting it. 😉 I have lived here for several years, and there are some bright spots in the state, like Gulfport, Hattiesburg, Jackson, and Desoto County (just south of Memphis).

It should be a part, not apart

Not sure if you’re just asking about the look or editing, but it should be “Thank you for being a part…” Apart means separate.
I love the “fun facts” section, makes it very personal. And the white spaces around the sections makes it easy to read even though that font could be difficult if you had a whole page of text.
Speaking of, I love the stick print font, but to me there’s too many different spacings. On the order of events, the letters in Prelude are a lot wider than the rest, & it looks like each line is a different space. I think it’s because they don’t take up the same amount of space, so my eye is trying to fill in the white space. Maybe try making all the letters the same width, or at least all the same in each section.

Change the fonts. Got rid of the script font (which was the issue in “a part” — the spacing after the a wasn’t large enough, but I do find the vocabulary lesson a little catty).
Changed the position of the parents.
Changed the color of the border and thinned it out.
