To be honest, these look a little bit like invites to a kids birthday. I would go more subtle with your theme. I’ve always thought these invites from wedding paper divas looked very Tangled inspired but are just more subtle.

Or these from Minted:

starlightgirl :  Can I ask where you’re going to get them printed? I used to do minor graphic design and my Fiance works in advertising so we think it’s silly to pay someone to design our STFs and Invites when we’re capable of doing it ourselves! I’ve been shocked by the cost of printing something I’ve designed myself.

starlightgirl :  Honestly I totally love them, better than the recommendation imho, but I’m a 34 year old kid at heart. Prefer a Disney classic over most adult films any day! ๐Ÿ˜€ These are very interesting and eye catching. 

Sheesh $12 per invite seems awfully high. Where were you searching? I like weddingpaperie.com and they aren’t insanely expensive.

Those aren’t $12 per invite. You are just paying for the file which is very reasonable.

starlightgirl :  But you were going to home print/ print them out yourself anyway. So, you’d only be adding an extra charge of $46.

starlightgirl :  the only thing I’d say would be that normally you have the most important bits of information such as the date, location, names the biggest/most prominent. At the moment the date is being lost at the bottom (and it’s actually smaller than the ‘you’re invite to…’ bit) so I’d say increase the size of it a bit just so it’s not missed.

Also a small thing with the rsvp – the reply by date is being hidden by the title so I’d recommend shrinking the ‘rsvp’ title a bit and moving it up so it’s not overlapping. Just so it’s not missed! 

Other than that it sounds like a fun theme you guys have!

whoami :  I got mine printed at catprint …. cant remember how much exactly but fairly reasonable. I believe it was around $300 for 75  (each) of invites, response cards, and direction cards.
