Hello ladies! Would love some feedback on the STD that I just designed. We're having a shark-themed wedding, so I wanted to incorporate some shark love without making it look like a birthday party invite for a 6 year old little boy!

 

Because we're on a tight budget, I hit the drawing board (literally!) and came up with this after a couple weeks of trial & error and some botched designs. I'm only self-taught in photoshop and Inkscape (a FREE version of Illustrator you can download online!), so I'm not proficient but can still make changes. I'm pretty nit picky so I'm wondering if you could give me some feedback.. is there anything I should change/add/remove? 

 

Once finished, I will be sending these out via Postcards.com. They will even mail them out to each guest after printing, and it only costs $60 TOTAL for 100 STDs!!

This looks great! I think my suggestions would be to have 03.08.2013 (add the zero in front), and maybe give the "please join us in punta Cana" a bit of space, just drag that text down a wee bit

Oh these are SO cute!!!

 

I agree with dragging the please join us down a little bit, it seems a little high. 


I also love the two toned sharks, however the date in the other orange is throwing me off.  Not sure why.  Maybe Punta Cana in that color orange instead?

Thanks for the feedback ladies! There was something just bugging me about the wording, so I changed the order around. I think it looks much better with the date at the end. I also put a very, very light darker green shadow on the island.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
