I am having a tough time deciding between this one and the navy combination. I think this red and black one seems more formal?? I made a quick sample using me and my husbands info as a quick sample, so the details are not accurate. Thank you ladies for noticing, I will change the mistakes before showing the bride to be.

I vote the red one. There is more contrast and the vellum is easier to read. They are both lovely - and you can't miss no matter which one you choose. The stamp is absolutely perfect for a shower invite.

I am wondering what color the bride is using in her wedding......is it red? I like the red one over the navy one, but would use the color she is using for her wedding. The invitation is really pretty, and very sophisticated. One other comment......please, do not think I am being critical....just trying to help.....
Should this read...."honoring" not honouring?
Also, write out the word "one" instead of using the numeral "1" since you have spelled out "o'clock" . (example, One O'clock)
Good luck to you!

Do the bride and groom have the same last name, without being married?

You are right it should read "honoring" oops!! I just made a quick sample invite using my and my husbands info since she has not decided on a date yet. I didn't even realize I used my married name, I haven't used my maiden name is sooo long!! lol!! At least you guys are paying attention! Thank you for your great input and sharp eyes!

Love it - will have to put in my fav file! - I agree with the above comments!! It should read "One O'clock in the Afternoon" - for proper invitation wording, and both the "at" should not be capitalized. I would write out the year instead of the numbers and add the address of the Club. But that is just me - I usually go to invitation sites to check out the way that the printers word invites for anything formal - I find that they really helps! Hope the bride-to-be LOVES IT!!!
