    I voted no cuz I think these would work fine for a semi-formal wedding; but I might work with the design company(assuming thats what they are) first within your $300 budget – is there any way they can design just a flat panel card for you in the design you want, and then you can get the pocketfolds and diy that part? Then everyone would still get the same invitation?

    People talk; which is why I would worry about everyone not getting the same invitation. I did this once with christmas cards and included a photo only with certain ones (i only had printed maybe 15 photos); one aunt found out she hadn’t gotten a photo and was upset.

    They are the most amazing nautical invites I have ever seen. I think they look wonderful. Stick with them – they are wonderful. 

    I also feel that everyone should be given the same invites. Etiquette wise it lets everyone know that they are all as important as each other.

    If this is your personel info, you might want to blur it out and repost.  Everyone on google can see this.

    I think a dark blue envelope would help these look more formal.

    I agree that everyone should get the same invitation. I think these are very cute and like a pp said, a dark blue envelope could help make them a little more formal.

    I think they look awesome. If it says semi-formal, I think the point will be clear.

    @KimmySumShuga:  Can you use that credit for something else? Programs, escort cards, table numbers, or did it specifically have to be invitations?

    I like them! personally, I think most people expect weddings to be semi-formal or formal, don’t they? I think you should go with these, since they work so well with your theme.

    and also, I agree with the poster who warned you about putting all your personal info and your wedsite password on here.  better to be careful.

    While I get the general public thinks sailing = Martha’s vineyard and such, as a sailor, I find the nautical formal or semi-formal themes entertaining because my sailor friends are the most casual people ever!  The more of a sailor they are – for example, the team I sailed with that raced to Bermuda – the most likely to win awards for underdressed.

    Whatever you do though, do only one set of invites.  People talk.  I’m worried enough about different printing (I accidentally printed, glued, embossed an earlier version of the invite where it was all three – us, FI’s parents, my parents inviting, versus just my parents inviting – onto a few programs and wasn’t willing to redo all that work) even though everything else is the same.
