They look great! Since they fit your personalities, as you said, that is all that matters and they don’t have to be fancy as long as they get the information across.

Is there a theme to your wedding? Do these match your theme?

Because you asked for honesty, I don’t like them.  But if you believe that they suit you, and they go along with whatever you are trying to convey at your wedding, then it doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks!

@KateByDesign: I agree. I think they are good for a party but not really a wedding. I dont see how the photos would relate to the wedding? They remind me of a save the date or a college dorm party more than a wedding invite…

What is your theme?

I agree that it looks like a college party/fraternity invitation.  To me it doesn’t express love, which is of course the central theme that you are trying to convey when inviting someone to your wedding.

I think they would be fine for a save the date – but if your theme is at the beach and vintagey and not at like…the college you went to or on christmas then I would be very confused as a guest.

If you love the picture of your fiance dressed as an elf, I would have that picture somewhere at the actual wedding, no on the invite.

But in my personal opinion, there shouldn’t be any photographs on an invitation and that should be saved for a save the date instead.

But again, just my personal opinion and how I would feel if I received it in the mail.

I think they’re cute. They’re very informal and laid back and if that the type of people you are having and the type of wedding you are having then I say go for it.

However, if your wedding is slightly formal you may want to change the invite a bit as this comes across to me as a very informal almost backyard style wedding invite. I wouldn’t necessarily think I needed to dress up to go to this wedding, for example.
