    I’d stick with the first two. The latter are harder to read. I’m not crazy about the fonts but that’s more personal taste. ๐Ÿ™‚ Leaves are nice.

    For some reason, the pumpkins and the black font looks like halloween to me. IDK if I am the only one reading it like that. I voted for the last one. I like it with the gold font, it reads more fall to me.

    I like the first…I would shrink the font on the last line (invitation to follow).  I think it would keep the emphasis on your names.  ๐Ÿ™‚

    I picked the 3rd one as the contrast between the background and text is best and the right-justified text looks best within the “frame” of the background.

    The first 2 might look better if you center-justified the text, just a thought. And perhaps a deep brown would look less stark than the black while not blending in the way the orange does.

    I think you should go with more professional fonts and vary the spacing etc. It’s making these look a bit homemade. (I’m not trying to offend, I did my own invites and Save-The-Date Cards too bc I love DIY).

    I found my Save-The-Date Cards by googling STD images and finding ones that I liked and trying to recreate.

    Among the choices listed, I liked no.’s 1 and 4 best, but I voted for no. 4. I thought it was more formal and appropriate for a wedding.  If it was a regular autumn/Halloween/ Thanksgiving party or something more casual, I would have voted for no. 1, but no. 1 just doesn’t scream “wedding” to me.
