Thank you so much for your comments... I must of looked at this design for days and didn't see all the errors... very embarrassing. I wanted to keep the least amount of text on the invite. I thought I could include the time on the reception card since the ceremony was going to be at the hotel. With all your input I see it's not a very good idea and that I should add the time on the invite.

This is awesome Yolanda. I love Sarah's idea of the time on clock but also leaving it in the text as well.

I love this! It's such a great design. Maybe I'm a little old fashioned, but the wording makes it seem more like a save the date or announcement than a wedding invitation. Even if you added a small line under "are getting married" to say something like, "and you're invited," it would help a lot.

Ummm, can I have this as a print for my house? It's awesome! I do think it could use an invitation line though to cement it as an invitation and not a save the date.

I love this too! The only thing I don't see is a time? Unless you wanted to get cryptic and put the ceremony time on the clock faces? Might be fun.

Super cool!!!!! I agree it needs the time, would be neat to have it on the clock but some guests might not figure that out haha. I did notice the clock is reversed on the other side and needs to be fixed so it shows the same time on both sides. Also September is misspelled.
