Those are pretty cool!  You did a great job, the translations flow seamlessly.  You deserve a pat on the back for those.

@maskelunass: LOL, no, just German and alittle swedish for me.  I meant the look flows, I would have to use one of the translaters also.  I do love the way they turned out.  It is the first time that I have seen a dual language invite just..well.. flow.

Did you print these already? They look good but in case you want to play with these…

1. Use italics for Vietnamese and regular letters for English

2. Use a pretty script font for your names. There are some free ones on dafont.com if you don’t have one already. There’s one called “English” on that site that might work.

3. Put Ong Ba on one side for the Vietnamese names and Mr & Mrs for the English names.

4. Put the address only once. It’s almost the same in English/Vietnamese anyway.

Great job!

I know how much a pain in the butt it is to create bilingual invites!!!

I’m glad you had your Future Mother-In-Law proofread them, I was going to suggest that. Google translator butchered my invitation wording! My brother changed it all around.

Ours was dual sided, English on one and Chinese on the other.

Those look fantastic!  Thank you for the inspiration – I’m going to have to crank out about fifteen Japanese invitations pretty soon.

Oh, the light purple looks very pretty. Nice job! 🙂

I didn’t realize fonts in Vietnamese were so tricky. Everything looks good though.

These look awesome. You said you can get the same cardstock from Michaels, what should I look for? Does it already have the pocket in it, or did you have to cut and make that yourself? Seriously your invites are so great and polished. I hope my DIY ones come out looking this good!
