Bilingual Invitations

So I'm kind of second guessing my decision to do an English on Front and Vietnamese on back invitation... What is your opinion?

    Why are you second guessing this?
    2nd ectopic resulted in loss of tube. HSG revealed remaining tube is "severely torqued".
    IVF #1: ER 03/29/10; ET 04/01/10: transferred 2 embies; Beta #1 (9dp3dt)- 45; Beta #2 (11dp3dt)- 91= BFP
    FET#1: ET 04/18/12: transferred 4 embies; Beta #1: >2 = BFN
    IVF #2: ER 06/20/12; ET 6/25/12: transferred 2 embies; Beta #1 on 7/5/12= BFN
    8/16: hysteroscopy for polyp removal
    11/11: hysteroscopy #2 for yet another polyp removal
    FET#2: ET 12/15/12: transferred 3 embies; Beta #1 (9dp5dt): 12/24/12: 426; Beta #2 (11dp5dt): 845= BFP
    u/s 1/9= triplets!; miscarried all three on 1/10/13

    Keep them separate; it will look too cluttered if it's together. If you're not sure about double-sided invitations, consider a pocketfold or some other kind of folder. I did a tri-fold invitation. PIB

    Not sure what the exact terminology is, but we did one of the folding type of invitations with the loose card in the middle. And the loose card was English on one side and Cantonese on the other. I agree that two languages on one page would probably look cluttered.

    I'm not a fan of the two languages mixed onto one card.  Looks very cluttered and sometimes exact translations don't match up.

    Well... I priced it out and it's pretty much double the cost to do front and back.  It's about $0.50 to print a one-sided color 8.5 x 11 page.  Well... then obviously it would cost me about $1 to do both sides... then I have to factor in 2 envelopes (invite + reply) and stamps... I guess it's just more than I expected and was re-thinking it to save me about ~1/3 of the cost... oh well... I guess I'll keep it the way it is...

    MissAngel, I'm going to attempt a Vietnamese/English invitation in the next month.  Can I see what yours looks like?  I didn't get a clear view in your bio.

    Are you making them yourself?  I'm doing English, Vietnamese, and Korean.  I got a quote from a company and it's way too expensive...

    Yes I am doing them myself.  I was able to download the Vietnamese fonts and I did English on the other side.
