    These look great - go for it!

    I have a suggestion for something you could change.

    I'm a big jerk and just wanted to tell you that I hate them. So there.

    Usually, the last name of bride and groom aren’t included if their parents are listed and the last names are the same.

    I would not capitalize “request” or “son.”

    I would also remove “RSVP enclosed.”

    If that leaves you with a lot of space, consider making the fonts larger.

    The design is pretty!

    re: reception to follow looks lonely

    You could always put a note about preferred dress below that.  Ours said “reception to follow/beach formal”

    I’m assuming Joshua doesn’t have a middle name? I say that because, since it looks like you both have the same last names as your parents, you don’t need to list your last names, but if Josh doesn’t have a middle name it might look a bit empty.

    Feel free to leave it the way it is! I just thought the last names were a tiny bit redundant. They look beautiful!

    @GroovyHippieChick:  I was told that for formal invitations you use the “and” in the year and my invites do have it

    Very pretty!  The only comments I have in addition to the ones other posters have mentioned about lowercasing “request” & “son” and taking off the RSVP line are subjective and stylistic.  Personally, I would make all of the black text the same size (right now your parents’ names are a little bigger, and I’m not sure why) and I wouldn’t use italics for any of the text (not sure why his parents’ names are non-italic when the rest are – but generally, I think non-italic looks best).  Lastly, I’d consider changing the “to” between your names to use the non-script black font (in the same size as the rest of the black text).

    @Juliepants:  Mine originally read “Two Thousand and Eleven” until my Mother-In-Law who has a bachelor’s in English told me to take it out or she would be embarrassed to display it anywhere ):

    I currently have three different wedding invites on my fridge and they all have “Two thousand and twelve.”
