    I like the B&W one but I have to agree about your name being at the top. One ours I put something about we would love to celebrate with you or something like that. I would also soften up your names some. I like the fonts that you used...nice job.

        I bought invitations from ebay for my At Home Reception, a total of 50 invitations from two different sellers. They were really cheap and they look pretty enough in person, I love the lace design on the velum evelope sleeve. The envelopes could be better quality, thicker but they're envelopes and I'm not gonna worry about it. All in all I think they will work just fine for the intented purpose. I still need response cards, so it will add some expense but I might go with home printed postcards. Good luck and I'd love to see more affordable invites, since I'm still figuring out my destination invitations.

          I spent about $15 on the actual invites and printed them myself. Just printed the starfish on the top. They were VERY simple. Invites werent that important for me b/c there were only a few close friends/family getting them and they already all knew the details.

          I agree that the names & date on the top of your examples looks a little save the date like. What about a monogram instead?

            These are the invitations I was inspired by. I copied the name on the top thing, but it did seem a little redundant to me. I'm going to play with some options. Maybe a quote on the top will look nice.

                Thanks again everyone for all the great suggestions. I read through a bunch of quotes, but I'm not a very sentimental person so most of the quotes were too serious for me. I really love the Dr. Seuss quote Kate (Lala) used on all of her wedding stuff, so if I can't find anything else that I like, I might be a copycat (as long as that's OK).

                Here are my 3 choices for the picture. I also took everyone's suggestions for improving the look of my invite. I'd love feedback, so any thoughts you have for improving the design would be appreciated!!!

                  I'm thinking about getting the free vistaprint business cards to put additional info on like our TA contact info, maybe our address, my email address, phone number, etc. Should I put the website there instead? As long as it looks OK, I do like having it on the invite so people don't lose it.
