- Wedding: October 2012
Of course when I need opinions on anything, I turn to you bees. So I need some extra sets of eyes to look over our invitation proofs. I feell like I have been staring at them for so long, I wouldn’t even notice if I spelled my name wrong! Any input would be appreciated 🙂
Ok so first I’ll show pics of the invites! I went through an Etsy seller who I LOVE (feel free to PM if you’d like details, though I know she’s all booked up for this year’s wedding season). The invitations are amazing and very reasonably priced, and each little gold detail is hand-embossed. Outer belly band made of ribbon over the gold pocketfold:
A portion of the main invite part (too lazy to blank out any more info.. you get the idea 🙂 the gold damask symbol is embossed, I love it!)
And the inserts in the pocket:
Now for the proofs. I didn’t feel like blanking out everything, so please refrain from crashing my wedding in good ol’ PA this fall.. I swear it won’t be too exciting (at least I cut our our last names, right?! haha) For the invite, the gold embossed designs will be in the top left and bottom right in the blank spaces, so it will look symmetrical (for anyone who is as anal about these things as I am!)
Question – two thousand and twelve or two thousand twelve?
So for the following inserts, the blank spaces will be where the embossed designs will be.
For the response card, is it okay to put generic chicken or beef since we won’t be picking out our actual menu for a few months? Does the RSVP date sound okay? What about the “we have reserved _ seats in your honor”? I thought it’d be good to indicate if people actually get +1s or not, because I already had friends saying “oooh I need to find a date to your wedding!” when I’m actually not giving them a +1.. awwwkward!
Does the wording on the reception card sound okay?
For accommodations – include pricing or no? All of FI’s family are Out of Town so I figured it would save time for hotel booking, but my mom thought it was weird to include and thought I should put directions instead. Most people know how to google map or GPS something, right?
Any thoughts on wording or layout would be wonderful!!! Please let me know if anything looks or sounds weird or goodness forbid I have grammar or spelling errors! Thank you in advance, bees!! 🙂
