We received the first draft from our wedding invitation designer Secret Diary from South Africa – within 2 weeks, amazing work, and I highly recommend them.
We love it so far, the designer has turned our wedding theme beautifully (airmails, postcards) – exactly what I hope, however will change some of color of the wording and the envelope from pink to more vintage feel, as we think it is a bit cheesy (our wedding color is baby pink and baby blue – so it’s not entirely their fault).
Let me know how you feel, if you dont like it or love it, I wont be offended what so ever.
–> Please let me know if you dont like the color of the envelope!!! We are thinking about changing the color to this
** Note: I will remove the pics after 1 week or 2 for privacy reason.

I really like the whole thing but I think the envelope colour looks nothing like the other colours and maybe a bit busy. How about trying a plain coloured envelope? Im also having a passport type invite for my wedding you can see an example of it in my most recent posts on my profile

@ sweetchiquita12 : thank you, I have seen your invites, great work!!! Did you invite by yourself, if it is you are so talented honestly? Yes, that was my first impression to the envelope too, quite busy with the pink color, I think I will change the color of the envelope to the one in the picture above.
@ talljabride: thanks a lot, I am really happy that others like them.

@zoecn: Thanks so much! No i did not make the invites….i only wish i was that talented! I think going with the second envelopes is a better idea…..i like how it looks like a map.
just an fyi to press the reply button under a users name to reply to them instead of just typing the @ sign. By doing that it will show up in the users message box 🙂

hi, I think they are great, the only thing is i wouldnt put “hell yes” as a reply option, (but thats me & some of my guests are more conservative & older :-)). Plus I love the map evelope, but I dont neccessarily think the plane with the sign adds to the effect of the envelope (I think it distracts from it a bit) but I am not sure if you can change that. I also think you should stick with the blue envelope as the invite inside is blue. Overall, they are really great.

Thank you really much for your input. I was thinking the same about “hell yes” in the reply option, that wasn’t our original idea, I think I will change it “wouldn’t miss it for the word” or “wouldn’t miss it” and “will celebrate from afar” and I want a line for no. of guests as well.
I do like the airplane on the envelope, as I think it will be at the back of the envelope, it will be a surprise, however I will make the map liner/ contrast lighter, so that the envelope wont be too busy.
I have been playing around with the color, to make the cyan and magenta darker in some the invite and rsvp wording, and the magenta in the envelope lighter. Please plese, everyone, Let me know if you think it’s better or worse overall after the change. (some of the color I dont want to change such as our pictures also changed, which the designer can fix it, so please ignore them).
These are the links
Edited RSVP Card
On the back of the envelope and invite, there are some small wording ” Designed by Secret Diary” – is that a norm? Should we request them to remove those lines linking to the designer’s name?
I dont mind at all, and I dont think anyone will notice except me, however I would prefer not to have.
Thanks heaps for everyone opinion.

@zoecn: cool, I like the orginal colour of the invite & the resvp card & the edited version of the envelope.
Plus I would never ever consent to someone putting their design on my invites, unless they are doing them for free for you. It is not like a website that they occasionally put that along the bottom. They shouldnt get advertising for free thats for sure. I would say “oh and I think you forgot to remove your company name from the design if you could sort that it it would be great thanks”.
