ladyartichoke :  that seems about right! The bee generally follows the standard idea that the invitation sets the tone for the formality of the event, but from what I can see people generally go by venue rather than invite. I’ve been to a fancy expensive wedding where the invites were literally by Facebook event (talk about casual), but people understood that it was formal because it was hosted in a 4 seasons ballroom.

That sounds like a lovely wedding and I think the invites do convey that type of feel.

Love it! Botanical themes are big right now. A couple of tiiny tweaks I would make though based on what you’ve said about the event:

-I’d make the background white (or the colour of the cardstock you choose) the pale blue makes it a bit more casual/tropical than modern/minimalist.

-And a serif title font could make it look a bit more elegant as well – add to the English Garden Party theme rather making it feel a bit backyard-BBQ ish. Something like this maybe.

ladyartichoke :  I also think elegant and fun but not at all casual, I think they perfectly suit your wedding 🙂

ladyartichoke :  I am a UK who’s also getting married in an orangery and is having lots of foliage and spring flowers. I don’t think your style screams casual at all. Maybe it is a UK / USA difference. Here is my suite… I hope it doesn’t scream casual either as our weddings sound very similar. Lol

ladyartichoke :  I think they’re great. Elegant, understated, definitely with a botanical garden vibe.

ladyartichoke :  Awesome! If the background is white I don’t think the typography change is even totally necessary, just if you were looking for a way to convey more of an elegant vibe. But I loove white, botanical greens and gold right now and I think it’s perfect for the type of wedding you’re having.
