I haven’t seen your original one but I love this! It’s so modern and pretty. Not sure if you have edited it yet but I would word the reception part as:

“Reception following ceremony”

“Reception to follow immediately after ceremony”

or something of that sort. People will probably get the point that it’s at the same location if it’s right after the ceremony.

Look good! I like the background graphic. And of course, the pink and black!

The script font and the new flourish are way better in your re-worked version. I’m not sure about the main font though. Maybe Garamond or something a little more classic?

Oh yeah, that is heavy. Hm. I used Trajan Pro and Palatino Linotype (or something like those; I forget which right now) and maybe that’s what I was thinking… it was a light serif font and that’s the type of font I imagine would work well there. But if it’s between Garamond and the font you have at the top? The one at the top is way better.

Personally for the main font I like the first version!  It’s a very cute invite.  great work.

Love the design, but just curious as to how you’re doing these.  Are these going to be DIY invites or are you sending them to a printger?  How will you be getting the white text on?

Great invitations!! I don’t know how picky you want to be on the wording, but I think technically is “Two Thousand Ten,” no “and”. I could be wrong on this, but that’s what I’ve always heard.

I love the invitations – they are gorgeous! Just wanted to throw that date thing out there, in case you’re picky. 🙂

 

EDIT: Just saw you fixed it on the updated invitation. Never mind!

I definitely like the newer version.  Can you move the “&” closer to your name?  It looks a little low, and closer to your FI’s name.  We used Century Gothic for our invites.  It has the same look as the one you have there, but a tiny bit more modern.

they look great! I noticed the first version explains the receptions is apps and desserts- you may want to reword the new one to mention that as well:

Cocktail reception to follow, or Cocktails and dancing immediately following

Just a thought- people may show up expecting a meal:) Good luck- they look great!
