EXCELLENT font choices! It can be very difficult to choose the right fonts for a piece like this, but you hit the nail on the head for sure!

WONDERFUL! and I love the change to just the bride and groom's first names. A couple of minor edits: "Rand's" should read "Rand" (now that you've moved it) and "FOREVER" is mispelled at the bottom center.

Help! Do you think the middle section, mainly the bride and groom names, is working? I've been staring at this for a month now and need some fresh eyes. Any/all feedback is very welcome!

I think it works! Love the type treatment & the colors. Though longer names would get pretty squished, no? Just a thought!

This is 100% gorgeous!!! I seriously love everything about this. The typography is awesome and I generally don't like "bloated" text.

I really like the feel of this. The only thing that bothers me a bit is that the last name of the girl is big and the first name of the boy is big. I kinda wish that both last names were big or both first names. Not sure how that would work with the design though. Just a thought!

Oh and I wanted to say that I love the simple black and white treatment. You can do something exciting with color accents for the other items...bright red or yellow?
