    I think they add some extra flair and as a guest, I always love more pizzazz. If its not a huge pain in the ass and you have the materials then I’d probably do it.

    I think it adds a lot to it!

    I like the band, but not the flower thingy.

    I’m not sure the flower quite flows with the font and design.

    I tied mine with twine, that might work for yours as well.

    Do you have more than one piece in your invite that the band is holding together? I can’t tell in the pic 🙂

    I admire your skills!

     

    Buuut…and please don’t hate me for saying this….but the flower makes it look a little juvenile. I don’t know how much pink paper you have stashed, but you could get a nice effect by having a two-layered belly band–the thick navy with a thinner pink strip over it (you could use ribbon if you wanted to go that route).

    It’s also gravy at this point–the printed invite is just beautiful as is!
