Invitations- OPINIONS PLEASE!

Hi Ladies!

You all can just call me Queen of the Last Minute. So the wedding is June 28th and I am JUST NOW ordering invites. hahahahaah Thank goodness for costco and their super cute invitations and fast processing time. Anyway, this is what I have designed up on their website. Please let me know what changes you'd make... all that good stuff.

ALSO. I am not sure what time to start the wedding? The location only allows the reception to go until 9pm, so I was thinking maybe a 3:00 arrival, 3:30 wedding, 4-5ish for photos and drinks/mingling and then after that have dinner, etc. I honestly am clueles.. we're meeting with the DJ soon though so maybe he can inspire me.

*feels a little insane*

Here's the invites, response cards & directions card. Our colors are light aqua & charcoal grey- but the invites have chocolate on them. I was thinking I might adhere a small charcoal rhinestone to the center of the design on the cards. I have rhinestones adorning the table numbers, cake topper and the chopsticks. Cheesey? Cute? I don't know? And I was considering tying the cards all together with some sort of a cute ribbon or something. Any ideas would be GREAT. Thanks!!

I think the design is beautiful. I have seen a lot of invites with rhinestones and think they add a nice touch, especially if you have them elsewhere. I did some quick mental math and your timeline sounds about right. Your reception is about 1/2 an hour longer than mine, but that is virtually equivalent. I am not sure if you are supposed to put the time on there of when the ceremony starts or when they arrive. Hopefully someone else can provide insight on that. If you did it right, I did not. :( But overall, they look great!

Also, please strain your eyes and let me know if the wording on the invite is acceptable. It's going to be a smallish (80 guests) wedding up in a mountain garden. Kind of fancy, not toooo formal though. I want the invites to work with the feel of the day

Oooh that's a good question, pink! I figure people will show up a tad late, so if I tell them to be there at 3, they will have a little bit of wiggle room for the ceremony. Maybe plan on having your ceremony a tad late? I think they always run late regardless of planning :)

I love it, I like the font!
Okay regarding timing we have the chapel reserved for an hour and we told people to arrive on the dot at the start of the hour. We figured if we had 10-15 minutes for people to get settled we would be able to get the ball rolling and the ceremony wouldn't take more than 30-40 minutes. Do I need to tell people to arrive earlier?! Do people usually take more time to settle into their seats?

I think they look great. Good question about the timing. I think this is the same reason I haven't printed my invites yet :) Is the ceremony and location at the same place? If so, you might want to add on the bottom something like, "reception immediately after".

Very pretty! I also added crystal rhinestones to my invites and response cards (PIB). They have a flower somewhat similar to your's and I put the rhinestone in the center of each flower. FI didn't think I should do it b/c he didn't think it would make a big difference but after I did it, he saw how much it made them pop. Very nice!

Looks awesome!!! I would just double check your times. Since you have to be done by 9pm, did you want to start the wedding earlier? Do you pay per hour? Or do you have the venue for the day?

-HMM :)

I love them! SO summer-y and fun! I would make your names a bit larger though...maybe it's because I'm 40 and can't see! Rhinestones are so much fun and I love the idea of tying them together with a bow! Your wedding will be beautiful!
