The design looks a little pixel-y to me.. have you tried printing them? It may just be the image, but my fear would be that when printed you’d see all the pixels in the image. i’m not sure what you used to design them, but maybe a more high-res image would help out with that (however it is quite possible that it’s just the image and once printed it will look fine.)

Just a suggestion:
Try a little more variety in your fonts. It’s not a good idea to mix two different scripts, so why not try a script with a serif typeface for things you want to be very prominent? It could make things more interesting.

@TheSpoons:  You can make an invitation look soft and elegant using something other than scripts. Having two scripts together (especially ones that are so similar) is like having two shades of blue next to each other that *ALMOST* match but aren’t quite the same. It just creates tension.

I would make the quote on the bottom a smaller text size.

@TheSpoons:  Makes sense re:pixels. Not an issue then.

I also agree with the two scripts part too.. there are some nice and elegant serif type fonts that could match well.. but I think putting the quote on the invitation jacket like you mentioned would be a better idea anyway. It would probably fit better there as well and then you don’t have to worry about the issue of the clashing scripts.

I would move the quote to another page and Do Not Capitalize Every Letter In It.

Today is a special day 
where all my hopes and dreams come true

It should be – two thousand fourteen – without the “and”.

I had a hard time reading the script in the quote at the bottom (Specifically the words “Is” and “To”. I also agree that all the words should not be capitalized. This may also help with readability. I think the dark background and the red rose give it a very sexy, sultry feel.

Follow this for capitalization.  I underlined the words you should fix.  Also, spell out the state name and other words in the address.
