I completely love it! The only thing that kinda bothers me are the placement of the clouds ... it makes that area too busy and competes with the banner. I would suggest placing a cloud to the right of the part where it says Eaglewood Golf Resort and then the other on the left side near the shoulder of the groom ... just my thoughts.

I LOVE your invites! If I was invited to this wedding I would TOTALLY sew on cute little bells on my dress! Tongue

super cute! love the bells thing.
 i do think that with the lines next to the sentences..  you should tell them to mark their choice  instead of circle it  because the line loosk like it;s meant for that.

Thank you everyone!!!
Thanks to everyone who noticed small details that needed to be fixed! Craftster is the ultimate way to have your things "proofread"
Thank you, also, for the thoughts and advice. It helps me make my project even better, and I truly appreciate it.
Also, I cannot take credit for the RSVP wording! My lovely sister found it somewhere online and emailed the idea to me.
So, to whoever started it, you are genius! And thank you for making something cute that we could all copy <3

I have received magnets on cardstock at work with rubber cement kind of stuff stuck to the back which sticks them to the cardstock. You could use cardstock in a coordinating colour and use everyday envelopes.

But, I like the coin envelope idea, save money on the card stock and buy the envelopes. One thing though, make sure the post office accepts them, being that small they may not all find their way back.

I must say I love the invites, RSVPs are cute too!

Sooo cute! I especially love the save the date. That's my favourite colour.

I just wanted to add some helpful critique...
It kinda bothers me how the various elements on the invite aren't quite centered.

here's a quick image to show what I mean. Hope you don't mind my editing your image.

The red is the center of the card, the blue is the center of the banner, words, and illustration, and the orange is the center of your names.
Before you printed your invites, I would make sure everything was lined up to the red line. It'll make for a more balanced invite.

I probably should have mentioned this, but I collaged this image in picnik, just to show the front and back together. The full sized version is totally centered =)
(Although, we might be a little off-center in real life! lol)

This is totally awesome! We made our own cards YEARS ago (17 to be specific on tomorrow - mar 20!). We didn't have the cool stuff you guys have now, and the older folks of the family felt we were being disrespectful for sending out personal invitations.  We did due to budget constraints and in the end, everyone had a great time!  I just love the RSVP card! Sounds like a good party!

for one critique: i agree with another poster about the placement of the clouds on the invitation.  I would either remove them or lower them.

"Don't you let nobody tell you that you can't do nothin. You can do whatevah you put your mind to!" - wise words from my Granny when I was 5 years old.

I think the cheapest/fastest thing to do would be to get some cardstock the size of your envelope and put a couple dots of rubber cement on the back. A bottle could get all of them done and would be way cheaper than glue dots. You could print some cute saying or your names on that cardstock.

Very cute invites!
