These look great! The stamp is a nice touch, definitely ask your Fiance where he got it from when you get the chance!

I did have one question for you.  I see that on the English ones you put the church name in English and on the Portuguese you put the name in Portuguese.

The church where we will have our ceremony has an English and a Spanish name but for the most part I am just sending English invites.  I was wondering if the church you have has a sign in both Portuguese and English or just English.  I was also wondering this because you left Mississauga Community Center on both the Portuguese and English cards.  If the church doesn’t have both names on the sign are you worried about people being able to find it?

I’ve always refered to the church we are doing our ceremony in by the Spanish name and have tentatively made invites with the Spanish name but my mother just informed me that the new sign is only in English.  While this doesn’t matter for my family (the church is run by my granmother everyone knows where it is anyway) I’m wondering if it will matter to his family and make it harder from them to find the place.  It’s not in the best neighborhood so I’m sure they will all be nervous trying to find it anyway lol. I’m wondering if I should make two invites and put the English name on his families stuff and the Spanish name on my families stuff.  As it is I have to make some Spanish invites for a select few people in the family that can only read Spanish.

Your invites are lovely though! I love the wax seal.  I was surprised by how much Portuguese I could read from that even though I don’t know a word of it lol, I definetly have a harder time understanding it when its spoken though. (I also know French though so I guess there just so close because they are romance languages.)

Interesting it looks like I’ll have to do the english name for the english guests and the spanish name for the people who know then.  Thats a bummer. 🙁  I just want these guys to find it and most are not going to be happy to go there in the first place the last thing I need is for them to get lost!
