@ekizuna:  I think it’s a beautiful invitation! I’m a little concerned about the coloring on the wording – i’m not sure if it’s my computer screen, but I do feel like I’m squinting to read things. I wish the coloring could just be a little darker.  What would the invite look like with a more simple text as you suggested?

I think your wording is okay, but Im definitely not a pro at stuff like that. Hopefully you get some good advice! 😀

This is a beautiful design! But I agree with PP, the text should be darker – brown, perhaps? Your names could stay in color, but the actual info should be easier to read.

Also, you might consider a serif font for the information. Again, making it easier to read.

As for the wording, I would make it all third person… I would suggest it reading as such:

“You are invited to celebrate the beginning of a new life together as Bride Name and Groom Name are united as husband and wife”

What some people do is put the text in simplier font, then your names in scripty font.

@Reeniero:  I agree that third person wording would read better.

I also agree with @KoiKove. I think you could stand to leave your names in the scripted font, and that a sans serif font would look better for the rest of the invitation.

I love the art nouveau feeling!

As for the invitation itself, it is easier to read with the sans serif font. However, I still find it difficult to read the reception information at the end – the light orange makes me squint more than any of the other colours. Could you make it darker or perhaps change it to a darker green?

As for the wording, third person does look a lot better!

I think I would make the text that nice blue color in the invite. It would be easiest to read. Also, the pink would look nice. I think the text should be one color.

I think the invitation is beautiful, but I don’t like that the words are all different colors.  I would pick one color or possibly put just your names in another color.  I would stick with black, TBH.  I think it’s classy that way.

Love the ombre version personally, your names stand out, it flows well and it’s easy to read!
