Hi fellow Bees!
I’m starting my first thread here and thought it only fitting it would be something I’ve been obsessing over lately.
Can you tell me what you think of this invite I’ve designed? Our colors are aqua and green and we’re doing sort of a southern theme. I want to make sure it looks great because I’m going to attempt to DIY ‘letterpress’ them and I don’t want to have to purchase more than one plate!

I love your envelopes! The invitation itself is kind of hard to see for any grammatical/formatting advice, but it looks good too. Not sure how DIY letterpress works, but looking at that blue box around your initials, I wonder if you have to puchase a separate plate/do an extra pass on everything just for that? If so, I might eleminate it, or add MORE blue to make it worth the extra time and effort.

I love it! I really like the monogram you’ve added to the top. There’s a classic feel to it. Awesome job!

Sorry about that – it got tiny when I compressed the file. And I was also worried about the two colors, though I wouldn’t have to order a second plate. With a tip from this site:
You can add as much as you want on the plate as long as you are careful of where you will need to cut. This lady even added extra phrases for holidays, etc… so she can make other stationery and cards. But that wouldn’t solve the problem of having to run them through the press a second time.
Here’s a close up (I am now realizing I need a new camera!):

Beautiful. I really like them. Not sure how much of an etiquette stickler you are but traditionally the phrase “half after” is used on wedding invitations instead of “half past”.
