ooh, dark and unexpected. I think the small-caps text could benefit from a bit more contrast or weight?

I love the tones you used...dark and romantic. I agree that the small type is hard to read, but then again, maybe it looks better at actual size?

i really like the vibe of this invitation- gothic without being too overwhelming or theme-y.

Wow, this is perfect for the 'Twillight' invite. I've been trying to come up with something, but you nailed it! I honestly have no interest in the series, so I am completely clueless - then I made the mistake to look at the actual wedding invites they use in the movie... very bland and boring and I completely lost my 'vampire mojo'! The only thing I would suggest is to keep the colors the same in the oval. I can see that the names should stand out, but I did notice right away that the flower was less vibrant than the names... Maybe it's just my subjective opinion?

Also, I don't think the text is too small, I can still read it and it prints out much larger anyway.

Interestingly, I switched monitors and this looks completely brighter and more legible. I take back my last statement! :) Very nice!
