I think it’s cute and non-stuffy :).

A little nitpick, but what does “Help celebrate with…” mean? I’d change it to “Come celebrate…” but that’s me, if it doesn’t bother you then hey 🙂 The invite is definitely cute and fun though!

It is cute!! If you want to spice it up maybe just get a cute-er stamp or something? But yeah it looks good!

Agree on the wording, and if you want to add color, you can always do through text!

Love it!  But would change a bit.

I’d leave out the line of “help celebrate with the couple on” totally.  And it’s always nice to add on the couples’ last names to make sure everybody is familiar with the names of the couple.  Sometimes friends of either the bride and groom don’t know the spouse to be terribly well, and adding in that info is good~

And I would change the first few lines to something casual and fun like this:

 

 Kristen and Brian are Getting Married!

Join us for a shower honoring Kristen X and Brian Y!

April 10th at 4:00 p.m.

10111 Happy Couple Lane

Hotlanta, GA  30000

(shower hosted by Mrs. Angela Y, mother of the bride)

 

R.S.V.P  by April 3rd, to Tamera Z

@bellenga: hm i think it depends on the formality and how well you know the guests re: the inclusion of surnames.  For our e party invitation, we didn’t want it to be too formal, but still chose really pretty invitations, so one way we made it less so was to exclude surnames.  Also, in our case (not sure about OP’s sitch), it’s all family and very close friends, so they all know who we are =)

@Meowerson:  I went to an engagement party for a friend I used to work with a few years ago.  I wasn’t familiar with her Fiance, but was glad that I had viewed his last name on the invite b/c his parents were there and I could say “glad to meet you Mr. and Mrs. X”.  Plus it’s good b/c when you’re at a store buying a gift for the bride, it helps in case there’s a glitch, to know the last name of the groom too.

I knew her Fiance as only David.  Didn’t know David’s last name or anything.  Just that he was the Fiance of my friend Beth! 

Having last names on invites to anything doesn’t make it formal imho.
