Is “Betrothed” your FI’s last name?  Or are you saying you guys are betrothed/engaged?  If the latter, then that doesn’t make sense with your other wording and I would take it out.

OMG!! I love them! These are so great! Good job.

I love that they have a similar feel but are not exact copies.

@BooRadley:  I think those are just placeholders for the real wording 🙂

Amazing job!! I agree with the pp, that they look better than the originals! I was wondering if you wanted to add a dash between your name and bride or not, other than that they’re amazing!!!

@LizLemon:  lol, gotcha.  One other thing- the bottom border is thinner than the other 3 sides.  But I’m probably the only weirdo that would notice that.  Seriously, these are wonderful, you should be very proud.

Wow, amazing job! You hit it out of the park!

Fantastic font choices and lovely colors in the flowers.

Love the envelopes.

If there’s any change I would make personally it would be to make the outside border a cream color. Or maybe overlay the blue with a creamy lace texture (but that might be too busy).

I made my invites too, such a labor of love! Congrats!

I love the look. The big thing that stands out to me is the change of posssession in the narrative.

Because you have shared in OUR lives….Bride & Groom, together with THEIR parents request….at THEIR marriage. 

 Maybe it’s just me, but it seems more cohesive if the OUR is changed to THEIR or, conversely, the THEIR’s changed to OUR.

Also, because the overall feel of the invitation of less formal, you might want to reconsider the use of the more formal “honour” and think about the less formal “honor”.

Looks great, tho!
