Make the cards smaller  but keep the words the same size so there is less white space.

Change the font the names are in to something with a bit more personaility

What does the rest of the decor look like? It’s hard to suggest with out know the “look” of your event.

Can you add some kind of border on them to fill up some of the white space?

Also, I love the table number font!  Do you mind sharing what font it is?

You could make the cards smaller or maybe put a purple border around, like on your invite.   That would make less white space.  I agree with a more interesting font for the names as well.

Since you have the jewels i wouldn’t suggest adding another image – but I think the other girls nailed it w/ just a simple purple border. That border combined w/ a smaller card will keep them simple, but still fit the look of your wedding.

Yaayy!  Harry Potter rocks! 🙂

Now for some ideas…

1) I’d say put a small space in between each of the names and make a little more space between the names and table number. 

2) Make the names a more interesting font but not something too crazy that could clash with the table number font. 

3) You could make the entire card smaller and keep them all white -or- have a purple folded card the size of the white cards you have now and then make a smaller rectangular (flat) white card with all the info on it and center and glue it onto the front of purple folded card.

@als87:  thanks! if I decide to make my own invitations, it’s totally worth the $12. I absolutely love it!

Are you designing them in Word?  I can always help you with the purple border if you need it!  If you can’t figure it out let me know.
