Hi Bees, need a little inspiration for our invites! We’re having a multicoloured themed wedding, main colour white with colour pops in the accessories, laid back relaxed with a BBQ evening meal!
I’ve designed these after going through many different versions and options, we’ve got to this point;
I like the layout as it is, it flows round, not too much info but will be doing an info card (possibly on the back of this), an RSVP card and a STD. But the gap between theCeremony & Reception part is bugging me. Everything I think to put there makes it feel cheesy!
Just not keen on either of those but having the names further down in the middle just doesn’t look as pleasing as where they are now! Anyone have any ideas?

Why don’t you move Katie and Ben to the dead centre and make the 4 chunks of text around it smaller to compenasate.

romeantic : I like the idea of having something like the draping stars. But if you can’t find something that you both don’t feel is cheesy… what about bringing the “Ceremony” and “Reception” pieces slightly in and down so that they are offset from the text above?

I agree with making your names the exact center of the card. As they are now, it looks weird and like something didn’t print right on the invitation.

That’s what I was going to say… move your names down to the centre.

I think reformating the all the text would help a bit and you could still keep the multi-color theme going. Place your names at the very top and then place everything below it using the rule of 3rds.

“Katie and Ben would love to invite you to our wedding” — you are talking about yourself in third person, and then in first person.
Also, “would love to invite you to our wedding” is a conditional phrase — as in the sentence “We would love to invite you… buuut we can’t.” It makes the invitation sound hypothetical. If this is an invitation, it should say “we invite you” or “we are overjoyed to invite you” … not “we would love to invite you.”
