I workd hard on these and nobody seems to like any of it. I posted these on facebook and nobody has said anything nice yet. I know they are not the greatest by any means, but I can afford to spend a bunch of money on custom made gifts that people are going to throw away. We are on a tight budget and even hubby to be doesn’t like them. I am so hurt.
What do you think bee’s ? Are my projects tacky?

I’m gonna give you a piece of adive…don’t listen to them! They are not tacky at all! I actually quite like them!! People have no right to say such things and you shouldn’t have to deal with it. So cheer up, I think they’re lovely 🙂

I don’t think they are tacky but since they are blank, it’s hard to get an idea of what the finished product will look like. The layout, font, and text colors will play a large part in how the finished product looks. You can do a lot with those to jazz them up…create a monogram that you can use throughout your paper products, invites, favor bags, programs, etc…..use different text colors to match your theme, etc.

They aren’t tacky. But if I was on Facebook, I probably wouldn’t bother to comment on them. They do look nice though, and I’m sure people will admire them when they actually get them in the mail/ at your wedding. I guess, my opinion is that nobody cares about you in the Facebook world, thats just a place for you to compliment them or boost their ego. But that’s a discussion for another thread. They really do look nice. I’m sorry you feel that people think they look bad. 🙁

I think they’re pretty! I like the ribbon color a lot – I’ve been on a red kick recently.
They are DEFINITELY NOT tacky. (And facebook people can be weird… sometimes they don’t comment on something that you’re sure they will.)
Don’t worry for a minute. (And if your FH thinks he can do better? Dare him to. 🙂

Not tacky at all. The bows make them precious and delicate. I’m sure the print will just add to the elegance. Keep up the good work!

They arent complete yet so thats why you arent getting any major responses because no one can really tell which direction you want to take them to.

I think they are a great start. Like a PP said it is hard to get the whole look with them blank.

are people saying mean things or just not saying anything? I would never comment on something like that on facebook, what if I wasn’t invited and here I am commenting on the invitation. I wouldn’t worry about it. Do whats best for you, besides you can’t please everyone with everything

Girl, i love them.
You should be proud of the work you’ve done.
I’m huge into crafts and very picky with what I do. i would spend alittle more attention on the bows, just tweek them a little to make sure the bottom of the bow, both ribbons are below the two loops.
I agree with jamaicabride, a monogram will enhance the look, with such a simple detail. Or even some type of icon to match your wedding theme.
Once you have all the text written you’ll be amazed at the difference. Have faith girl and be proud, most people won’t even take the time to do all of that work on their own. I think you are awesome!

They look like traditional invites to me. What’s tacky about them? Maybe they’ll have more to say when you actually write something on them, that way they can see the finished product.

Incomplete-YES, Tacky-NO!! I’m sorry people are saying hurtful things about your hard work. Perhaps you can ask them what you could do to improve them?
They are a very good start, in my opinion.

Not tacky at all, just plain right now. But use the right font and they’ll really pop.

@bryenswife: I am going to say this in the kindest way possible: no one cares about your wedding as much as you do. Some people have a major passion for it, I’ve never met any of those people in real life (except paid professionals).
Once everything comes together, you’ll be overwhelmed with compliments. Until then, they just look like plain invites with ribbons.You aren’t going to be able to expect people to recognize how hard you’ve worked, you just have to trust your vision and know it will come together.
But for what it’s worth, they look great to me! I could never make something so elegant.
