    Thanks Christine!
    I should've pointed out that I deleted the last names on the parents names, lol. Otherwise they are centered.

    I know, that script is so pretty but so hard to read! Its the reason why I added a third script and used it for our names. The problem is I'm limited with size. I'm making the pocket folds myself out of an 8 1/2 x 11 sheet. the final envelope will only be 8 1/2 by 4 so I needed to make sure all the inserts fit. I figure, most ppl know our parents names, and the location so they can make it out, lol!

    OK, you know I'm a font junkie. Will you share what fonts you used? I really love the script one your names are in- but would love to know which you used for everything if you're willing to spill the secret :)
    Thanks sarah! What a compliment coming from you :)

    I will def share my secrets, you know I don't hold out. I was going to wait until I finished them to post pics and instructions, but these are the fonts ( I tried attached them too.)

    Scripts- Helinda Rook and Carpenter Block- Episode I

    (Gotto love dafont.com)

    I REALLY wanted to use Cezanne but I didn't want to pay for a font. So I felt that Carpenter could still give it that look. But yes, its hard read
    I love them - I agree with Christine that your parents names look a bit off center.

    Also - LOVE!!!!! that you indicated the number of seats you had for them - no unexpected guests. Absoulutely BRILLIANT!!!
    Thanks! We needed to at this point. I actually left the space blank when we sent our Preliminary RSVP (w/ our STD's) and EVERYONE warned me. So there were quite a few suprises (i.e. someone I was expecting to say 2 said 5!) So I'm going to add the # of ppl the indicated when they responded to the Prelim Response.

    Beautiful.
    Thanks! I really wanted to incoorporate this line. I acutally took three different invites, 2 friends and Anny's, and meshed the words together.

    I do think the font your location is in might be a little hard to read, but maybe if that line was just a little bigger it would be fine. It's such a cool font I probably wouldn't change it. Where you wrote "cocktail" it's not hard to read, so I think it just needs a little more size.

    Beautiful work!
    Thanks!! so much !!!

      Is there a space in amistad between the "amist" and "ad"? It could just be the font and the way they space those letters, just wondering...

      But I think they are gorgeous Amy! I love that you did a Spanish and English version, and I've always loved your colors. Great job doing them yourself!!!

        Thanks! i love the fonts. They are not in my font arsenal.

        I agree that even if it's a little hard to read a few lines, everyone knows what they say.

          That makes sense about the last names...lol

          I thought that was Carpenter :) I remember when you were looking for that one- I actually forgot about it. Thanks for sharing! I really like the Helinda Rook script too. I think I've also seen that one before, just never saved it- now I have! Thanks for sharing. Fonts can make or break a project- your selection is superb! Much impressed, once again. They are lovely, and your guests will be blown away by your creativity (although they won't believe you made them!).

          that makes sense about the names, okay well then they are perfect and it just makes me sad I can't go. We will have to do something fun for our renunion in 2009 instead.

            Thanks Jamy! The font I'm using makes it look like there is a space. Its a really weird font to work with. I needed to place 2 space between each word yet w/in the same work, you can obviously see a gap!

            Yes, thanks to who ever found it for me, lol. I still would've loved cezanne though, but it was pretty pricey and I wasn't sure if it would have accent marks for the spanish version.

            These look SO nice! I love them!
            The only thing that seems a little odd to me was after COCKTAILS it says prior to reception... but the times kind of indicate that already. No big deal, they are still gorgeous!!! I love them!

                They look great! I love the spanish version. I can't wait to start mine, I will have at least one spanish one for my parents. Thanks for the inspiration!
