How big is that card?  I like to put Save-The-Date Cards on my refrigerator (my stainless one can have magnets) but if it’s too big (like 5×7 or larger) I won’t put it up and then I will tend to forget about it.  I personally prefer the magnetic ones but I know they’re more expensive.

You don’t need a photo but I think they’re nice.  I would not put a photo on the actual invitation.  We included a photo in our thank you cards.

This is lovely!

My only critiques:

-date is off center (scoot it to the left)

-“save our date” is also off center, just less so

-“FORMAL INVITATION TO FOLLOW” looks like shouting to me. I would try it in a script font (similar to your names but less bold) or in a font with small caps rather than all caps as shown.

-come to think of it, all the fonts you’ve picked are lovely, but I’m not sure they mix well from a design perspective. You can leave it as is and probably no one will care, but if you’re interested in learning more about combining fonts, here are some good resources:

introester :  I think there should be a bigger space between “June 30 2019” and “We have ___ seats….”.  They are too close together and it’s not balanced.  I would also suggest removing the second kindly for the declines with regret option.  It should also ready “Number of guests attending”.

They are beautiful and I love your font choice!! I’m sure narrowing down your options was tough, but you’ve done a great job!

introester :  You don’t need the second kindly before declines.  What is the difference between the number of seats reserved and number of guests attending?  Also what co_katherine said.

introester :  Also! I don’t think you need the “th” after 30.  Just a comma.
