LOVE the design! Seriously, it looks gorgeous.

I do see one, maybe two spelling errors, though? The first “our” should be “are”. And I can’t tell but I think the word “families” is missing the second “i”? It’s hard to tell in the pic so I apologize if it’s already in there! But, yes, this is beautiful. You did a fantastic job!

Love it- one typo- You ARE cordially

I would say “Joyfully request your presence as we say I do”, vs. honor

Are you missing an “I’ in familIes?

@HeyKaraoke:  OP, from your invitation I gather that it’s relatively casual, and also that the people paying for the wedding are you, your FH, and both you and your FH’s parents.  Is that accurate?

I think they are great. But I think it reads you our cordially invited when it should say you are – surely?

The design is fantastic!  You did a great job!

In addition to the spelling stuff mentioned by pp, “Joyfully request your honor as we say I do” sounds awkward to me.

Maybe “Joyfully request the honor of your presence as we say I do” would be better?

@rebwana:  Yes, or this…”Joyfully request your presence as we say I do” works too.

Beautiful! They will be perfect after you make the few corrections! What program did you use?

I also noticed that it looked like families was spelled “familes”

The design is great! I can’t quite read it all to see if there are other errors  — Not an issue with the design.  Just an issue with trying to read it in the pic 🙂

Love the design!


In addition to the couple of typos PP have pointed out,  you aren’t requesting their honor….  you’re requesting the honor of their presence.  And that wording is typically reserved for church ceremonies.

I’d use something like “joyfully request your presence”  or “invite you to join us”

i think pp have found the issues:  are instead of our, families spelling, change honor to presence.
