More like Holy Pig! I'm a little confused about the rsvp in the lower right but everything else is cool!

love the color palette and pig illustration, but i feel like all of the text has been squashed, particularly the black oak. is that just me?

I totally agree about the Black Oak - I like the slabby serifs and curves - they have the right look - but the font is so wide that it looks squished with smaller text.

OMG... I'm a vegetarian, so I close my eyes when they bring the pig around during a Luau, but I think this is great! I agree with the font looking squashed, but I think that was a style in vintage ads, no? And agree with 2 Birdstone, the RSVP is a little out of place

Oh, I just saw your comment about the font.. If you agree that it's kinda squashed, then why don't you simply adjust the vertical scale of the font? I do that with saddlebag, it's too squashed, but looks nice when you adjust it :-)

In the Philippines pork is considered a vegetable :) I think what I need to do find a substitute font. If this were ever offered for sale, I am not sure Minted's customizer would accept fonts with altered x-heights.
