it got cut off on my screen – i like them.  i think etiquette-wise, it is supposed to be “two thousand ten” – no “and” (there have been some other threads on this debate), and i generally center the wording – it may look less wordy that way, but I don’t think there is anything that you should leave off…otherwise – really cute!

1.  It’s “two thousand ten” OR “twenty ten.”  It’s not “two thousand and ten” unless you’re trying to convey 2000.10

2.  Why spell out two thousand ten when you didn’t spell out seventh?  Consistency is good.

3.  I think three different photos would look better than having one of them twice.

4.  Even up your margins.  They look like they are different on every side.

5.  It looks like you used the font for the date and names in about 5 different sizes.  It’s a bit distracting.

6.  The pink is totally fine with the white.  It doesn’t hurt my eyes at all nor did I have to strain to read the white print.

I think they are great! IMO my first impression was my eyes didn’t know where to start. I think i would take out the “are getting married” bc it’s slightly wordy, if you are opposed to that though try what @future said about centering!

I like the pink and the white, but agree that you could do a few things to punch it up.

I’d choose one font and use different sizes for impact.  Most of the sans serif family – like your upper left corner – will reduce well.

Three different photos – or one large one with brighter colors – might be more attention-getting.

If you do go with three photos, I’d scrap the white bars between in favor of heavy white framing for each.

I think they are great. I think the wording is really good and like how you did it all. I would possibly make the white stipe between the pictures the length of the pictures. I don’t know if i like the middle picture either. (is it your venue?)

But as I look at it some more – can you put Formal invitation to follow back in it’s original spot and font and leave just STD on the top left hand corner – I think it would look cleaner!

May I just add that my friend & I just sent out our e-STD’s via email using Mail Chimp and it totally ROCKS!!! It’s easy, fun and FREE!!! (You can pay for some services, but we won’t need to.)

We’re having fun keeping track of how many emails have been opened… how many have clicked to the wedding website…WHO has opened the emails. It’s da best!!! I discovered it thanks to this blog: PinkArgyleLaughing
