Very cute!! My only suggestion might be to change the heart to an ampersand.

@MeStephieP:  i love the colours.  the one thing that i noticed right away is that “invite you to celebrate” is not centered.  other than that, very nice.  i really like the timeline.

the top line looks like it could be a bit more centered as well.

Yeah, change the heart to or add an ampersand there. I also agree with mypinkshoes. And I think that star thing is a bit odd, it looks religious to me for some reason, so if it isn’t intended to be, maybe go with something else? A heart? A regular star? I don’t know. They are cute, though!

Right justify your last name (so the S and E are lined up)

Center and make smaller “Invite you…”

Make the When, Where entire section smaller (you need some ‘white space’)

Take out the ‘and’ in the year (two thousand thirteen)

You have a very casual invitation with very formal language for the WHEN. If it were me, I’d make the information more casual Saturday, September 21, 2013

Very well done!  I agree with the few changes posted above.  Hopefully, I can take a few pointers from you as I will be attempting to do this myself in a few months!  Thanks for the inspiration!

I think the first part looks off centered – you have some stuff more left-justified and some stuff centered (especially the “invite you to celebrate” line).  I also think the “when” section looks too wordy. 

I do really love the colors though!

@KoiKove:  All of this, plus justify the where/when sections so that the margins are equal, and I don’t feel like the font you used for the bulk of the text (like “together with this parents”) is the best choice.

I don’t love the ‘adults only celebration’ written right on to the invite itself. Maybe move that info onto your wedsite or a separate enclosure card?

@KoiKove:  +1

I’ve had a chance to think about this. Something is off and I couldn’t figure it out. Most invitations the “together with…and your names” take up 1/2 to 2/3 of the invitation. I think visually it would look better if the top half takes up more space (but don’t make the font too big. Empty space is your friend). Make the logistic stuff smaller. Take a look at sample invitations to see the ratio of space for each section.

Please keep in mind I am only using word – but I feel like there is something about understated elegance when people DIY. I think simple is always better whenthis is the case.

What about something like this?

(Again, I made this in word and not my usual software with my usual fonts, tools, etc)
