    If you are worried about them being too girly, perhaps you could make the background color something other than pink?  I like the overall style a lot and I think it fits into your theme nicely – but I personally think pink is a little too feminine for a wedding invite that includes both a bride & a groom.  I know my Fiance wouldn’t love it if our wedding invitations were mostly pink, but perhaps your Fiance doesn’t care!  Even a lighter shade of blush pink would look better, In My Humble Opinion.

    P.S. Just wanted to point out that on the Reply Card back, you are missing the “c” in “Decline with Regret” under Wedding & Reception.  Not sure if you caught that!

    As someone who loves pink, I commend your choice of colour! However, I do agree with the PP that maybe a lighter blush pink would be better. I also think that the “crackled” look of the background takes away from your wording a bit. It would look amazing in a solid light pink colour!

    I do love your swirly fonts, they look gorgeous.

    And one more typo: the date on your invite says “Two thousand and Eleven” instead of 2012.

    Good luck with your invites! I think that you’re on the right track with them 🙂

    I think the pink looks nice!  If you love it, I say go for it, especially if it’s your main wedding color.

    Take this with a grain of salt because I’m obsessed with clean, modern lines, but I feel like it’s too busy. The textured background, the super swirly font and the various colours are throwing me off. Perhaps lighten up the main taupe background a few shades and make it less “cracked” looking, as PPs have put it. I also think I’d like the swirly font a lot better if it were more of a matching colour like a chocolate brown or even black.

    I certainly don’t get the “rustic” vibe from these. They do look a little too fairy-taleish for your theme.

    @o0olibelulao0o: I NEVER look forward to the New Year in a way, because trust me, I will be writing “2011” on everything until at least March!

    It fits the theme but it is a little girlie. Maybe you can change the background to a solid white. You can then add a classic ribbon to the invites to ass a little touch of your theme.

    I like the style and it fits with your inspiration boards, but the pink is too much. Solid white or maybe a light shade of green?

    I think if you changed the background colour it would make a huge difference on the “girly” front , I think they are very nice.

    @Aure: I agree with you on this. I really like the look of clean lines and this is a little bit busy.

    I would try changing the background colour to something darker so there’s more of a contrast between the background and the brown box. You might also want to see what it looks like without the white pattern in the background. Smile
