I’m super nervous to show these to you because I know if anyone is going to catch mistakes, it is you guys. I found the PERFECT place to get my invitations done…and it was over twice my budget. So I took the things I liked and designed them myself. My photoshop skills finally had a purpose! Before I send them to someone to assemble (I might know photoshop but you should NEVER trust me with crafting), I want to make sure everything looks perfect.
Note: I know the accomodation card is smushed. I’m open to suggestions for how to make it LESS smushed and more legible. I couldn’t come up with anything and I need that information on there.
Note #2: These’ll obviously be larger once printed and the accom/reply card will be on the same size paper. I’m more worried about aesthetics (did I miss an obvious corner, is something the wrong color, etc) and wording.

They look great! Why not make the font smaller on the accommodations card? Also you could have it non capitalized font which might make it look a littler nicer/ more fitting.

They look great good job!! As for the accommodations I think you can get rid of “ask for the xyz wedding for adiscount rate”. You are already telling them you have a block of rooms in the first line.

Looks nice, but a few notes:
Accommodation card – accommodation is spelt wrong the second time it’s used.
Reply card – the graphic seems to repeat on the right and it doesn’t look like it should. It looks like there is a smudge to the left of before. The whole top section ‘favor of a reply..’ looks like it is too far right and should be centre aligned.
The all caps on the enclosure cards I am not sold on, but that is a personal stylistic preference for me.
Otherwise, looks nice!

I would suggest not using all caps and maybe try some different font. It’s very pretty but you can have more than one font on it and it will look very elegant. It will also help the accomodations page be not so heavy.
Two other things.
One, I would make the text on the bottom of your invite a little wider, if that makes sense. In photoshop you can spread your text out more.
Two, the line on your RSVP should be two lines, not one. It’s too tight.

@Cheeks225: Sometimes when you spend 10+ hours working on something, you miss the obvious. I changed it from size 15 to 14 and miraculously, it looks FAR less busy (to me).
@MsSparklyBee: Tempting, but this is the first wedding in my family in 6 years, the first out of town (90% of our invited guests are from out of town) one in…ever, I think. On my fiance’s side, the last wedding was an elopement in Italy, before that it was 35+ years ago. Sadly, I don’t know if they’d actually know to ask by name!

This is excellent! I knew I wanted to post this here for this amazing help. Where would I be without you guys?
@Birdee106: My fiance’s opinion of invitations is “will it get them there? Then I don’t care.” So when he said he REALLY liked the font (which isn’t actually caps lock, that’s just the style), he made a choice and unless I find something even better, I’m going to try to include him. I made the main invite a little wider. I like how it looks. It isn’t too obvious but it’s a bit more…full. I just played around putting the will/won’t attend lines on different lines (because I misread what you said). I’m not sure how I feel. I’m going to save two copies and figure out which format I like later. As for the dance floor line, I tried multiple lines, I’m not a fan. I did adjust the font and it fits a little better now, I think.
@crystalrae: THIS. This is why I post things. Thanks for catching the typo! I noticed the smudge just before you replied. Removed. Also see above for the font choice. Also also, I turned on the gridlines and realigned the reply card so it looked less right-heavy.

I like it but agree with the changes pp have said
