I was initially planning on just buying some invitations from Michaels, and keeping things cheap and simple (I’m currently a medical student, and the simpler the better is my wedding philosophy!) However, I have a very sweet cousin who is a graphic designer who very kindly offered to design them for me.
I found something online that I liked (although my fiance thought that the flower look like mushrooms…they are peonies) and told her that she could play around with the floral graphic since I wasn’t stuck on them being peonies. She sent me back something that is definitely similar, and I like parts of what she did, but I also know its not quite what I want it to look like yet…but I can’t quite put my finger on what I want changed. I don’t want to drive her crazy since she is doing this as a favor, but I also want to make sure I love them!
My gut feeling is that they aren’t quite formal enough. Any suggestions on how to improve these? I’m totally not creative…but I know there are probably lots of ladies out there who have those wonderful skills! 🙂

If you’re going for a more formal look maybe changing the bride & groom’s name to a more formal font (cursive of some sort) would do the trick for you??
I think these are great!

Yes! I do like the idea of changing either just the names, or all of the writing to some sort of italic. I think I’m still stuck on the graphic though…its a spring wedding so I still want it to feel floral, but I just don’t love the 2 that she came up with and I don’t know how to direct her!

maybe instead of flowers with stems you could just do the outline of a flower in the corner. look at the peony stamps miss panther used on cards she made…that’s the image i have.
also, if you want formal you should put your names in a big, fancy script! that little change will help tremendously.

I think changing the font for your names to something cursive would help, also, perhaps full names instead of just first?
And with the red flowers I would delete the top & middle one…..and the gray/pink one would delete the two small gray ones on the bottom. ?
