This is SO great. I feel like the main bride and groom text don't quite fit yet. Maybe some typography that feels more like the art-deco lines?

Thanks for the feedback, Meg! These are the fonts I've been sticking to for this style so have kept up the habit without looking to update it. Now you've got me thinking.

I agree with Meg, this gorgeous design caught my eye immediately! Love the fresh ornamentation. I think a san serif type would marry better with the line weight for the bride & grooms names. Welcome to Minted!

Wow, so cool! I agree on the type as well, and I'd like to see it fill the space a bit more, maybe by using longer names?

Thanks so much for the feedback, everyone! I got caught up doing a second submission, so didn't end up having time to edit this one, but I really appreciate all your comments!
