I’ve been working with a friend on desinging my own invitations. We’re getting married in NY they have a NYC theme – I really liked how they came out, although there’s been a lot of back-and-forth with SO’s parents which has me doubting them 🙁 So I wanted to get some other opinions on them – what do you guys think?? Do you see anything that needs to be fixed/adjusted/etc? We’re hoping to get them printed soon – the plan is to do the invites in letterpress and the RSVPs with flat printing (digital).
Oh one other thing, I really liked my idea for the rsvp card (with a subway sign & “mad libs” style) but SO’s parents HATED them. So I designed a plain version to send to their friends, instead. Both versions are below. THANK YOU!!!
p.s. the grey borders around each pic are just from when I took a screenshot – the real invites/rsvps have no grey border. Also, sorry for the silly anonymization 🙂

I love it and Im a real terror about graphic design/fonts/kerning.
Would you mind sharing a little info about Tribeca Rooftop? Im helping a friend research for her 100 person wedding. What was the price pp and whats that getting you? No worries if you dont want to share, or PM me!

@BirdieNY: They look great! I really like the subway style RSVP, although it may come off as a little less formal than your wedding is intended to be? I personally don’t think that matters, but maybe that’s why the Future In-Laws didn’t like it. Great job!

@BirdieNY: They are very cute. You should remove the cocktail attire part, though. Adults know how to dress appropriately and it’s considered rude to put a dress code unless it’s truly a black tie event!

Thanks! The wedding isn’t actually that formal, but Father-In-Law want it to be, so that definitely adds to their dislike!
I agree – I didn’t want to write “cocktail attire”, i think it’s not necessary and the invite looks better without. But that’s another of FIL’s requests, and I figured that was an easy one to give in on.

i like them. i really like the design of the subway rsvp. can’t you omit the mad-lib content and just put the standard info there for some of those particular guests. i really think the design matches with the rest of your invites.

@BirdieNY: I think the Madlib style one is awesome! Definitely playful and unique. Maybe have some of those printed out for your friends 🙂

I like a lot! I’d definitely remove the cocktail attire line and spread it by word of mouth. I think people will understand the formality based on the invitation. I also like the mad lib but I’d consider adding something about blank seats have been reserved in your honor. I know that helped us out a lot.

It’s pretty typical in NY to discuss attire on the invite. I’ve never seen an invite without it! The one thing I noticed is that the capitals are all different in the date. I’m not sure it’s supposed to be that way?

I love the look of your invites! I think the mad lib RSVP is so fun, and totally what I would have done had I not somehow gotten carried away with a super formal invite.
The only thing I notice is you have written Friday June 7th 2014… June 7th is a Saturday. I only noticed because that is my wedding date too!

LOVE. and I think the subway response cards work really well with the invite.

I love your RSVP cards, that is awesome…. Some people like more formal things…. The Birdie and Birdman could confuse people, espciallly those that are friends of the parents… and I know how my parents are, they are now 70, they would probably think I flipped my lid doing something like that… but none the less I think your invitations are cute and inventive and I say go for it.

I actually made a version like that with the subway sign on top, but a “normal” RSVP (ie no mad libs), but SO’s parents didn’t like that either. They really prefer as plain as can be!
