I put together some invitation options for our backyard/BBQ/casual style wedding. I’ve attached some photos of our yard and our insipiration board so you can get a feel for what we’re going for. I can’t decide and I need your help!
First invite seems too punk/ rock concert for the centerpieces. It doesn’t feel cohesive.
I think the second invite is both original and ties in more with the casual but elegant feel of the decor.
I also love the dandelion design and it would go well with the outdoor aspect.

Sounds like you already made a decision. 😉 Don’t start second guessing yourself. That road is WAY too long and winding, trust me.

i think they’re both a bit busy (although they are gorgeous)… i prefer the one on the right, but it doesn’t look like an invitation. maybe if you say YOU’RE INVITED TO OUR WEDDING AUGUST 21!!! on one side and then the other side says the specs? like the inspiration pix that you posted reminded me of a backyard soiree very comfy etc. but not so comfy that you want people in jeans….
i hope i am making sense, i love the concept of them!!

catilanc- You are so insightful..and right. After the time it took me I guess I didn’t just want to scrap my effort.
crebre80- the dark grey bars have the “please join us” schpeel. I don’t want them to be too feminine I’m glad they’re not too far out and weird!
Keep the comments and help coming!

I know you want to go for the second one, but I have to say I love the flyer!
It’s so fun & it reminds me of a rodeo style flyer… don’t ask me how (lol possibly the celebration font?). I’d be excited to receive an invite like that in the mail. It’s so different than the usual plain white, formal invite!
Beautiful work 🙂

FutureFisher – I’ve done that so many times myself. I’m sure I drive my fiance nuts when I ask him for a preference between two options, thinking I really don’t know which I like better, until he answers and have to tell him I actually like the other one now that he mentions it… Sometimes you just need to say it out loud/write it down.

I like the one on the right – its a little bit easier to read (less busy) and you & your finaces names stand out more in the second one. I like the idea of the first one but not for the main event – I think I would do something like that for the rehearsal dinner!
