    You are so awesome, thank you. Sarah has offered to help me out too.

    You are right! I want a fun, cool scripty font for the names. I think if that main part is fixed I would be okay.

      They aren't bad! I actually looked at the same invites but only decided against them because I really wanted an aqua pocket/jacket.

      Could you get a sparkly something to cover up the seashell to get them a little more omph? You could also wrap them in ribbon or something. Sorry I'm not exactly the DIY queen! LOL but you get what I'm saying!

              I think you should keep them. I think they look really good and I do not see the point of spending more money on them when they look good. I think you can "wow" people who come to the wedding with the OOT bags or something at the wedding, use the extra money towards something else. The invitations look good and I would totally use them!

                Well, I think that if you truly hate them, then you are TOTALLY within your rights to have more made. If its something you are going to look back on and regret, fix it. Thats the general rule of thumb that I'm using myself going into the wedding. Its just too big an event to be remembered with any type of regrets that you can avoid.

                I'm so sorry they didn't turn out the way you hoped!

                    You could get it printed somewhere like kinkos. I've only used vista print. I'm sure other people ahve good suggestions.

                    If you'd want to use it, I'll need the dimensions you want it in. I should also get that seashell graphic (or something like it) and get the shades right.

                    That was just a quick draft.

                      IMHO, I like them a lot and think you should keep them. They are better than any invitation than I've ever gotten in the mail. But, if you are really unhappy, I think you should get help from the DIY girls here to change them around.
