comments from Melanie:

This classic navy and gold wedding invitation uses the ampersand symbol as a focal point. Gold foil elements pair perfectly with an art-deco inspired sans serif font to create a simplified version of the 1920s invites that are all the rave.

I think you could improve this by limiting the amount of typefaces used and how they are used. Try sticking to just two. I love the gold against the navy though!

Love the color scheme and the gradient on your gold - very sophisticated. I agree with limiting the typefaces...there are too many competing. I would try using one consistent typeface for everything from "invite you" through the address (so that the names and the ampersand are the visual strong points). I would also try giving a little more breathing room between the ampersand and the text. They are very close and competing for your eye right now. I would make the ampersand and the names be the initial focus, and the wedding details more consistent and condensed. I like the font choice on the names, and your text treatment up there...would leave that as is, just give some more space between it and the ampersand. Perhaps just try moving the ampersand left and see how that looks?
