comments from the designer:

Beachy Keen: This beach inspired invitation feels chic but casual with a seahorse in the center. The watercolor effect adds an extra dimension to the design and plays off the turquoise color.

I love the changes, the "you are invited" font is prefect, maybe use that font for the "your presence" line on top too. And move all of the copy down a bit. Looking good. thanks for taking my comments into consideration. Good luck!

I'd clean up the spots under the name and leave the rest of texture as is.

I agree with Stacey about the spots under the names. I really love the water color effect - so pretty! I was wondering if maybe the script for the 1st and last line should be a little lighter - either in color or weight - so it doesn't overpower the rest of the info? Just a suggestion, though. Really beautiful design :)

I love your horse, your colors, your background!!! and even the font in the couple's name. Not crazy about the other fonts. To make it more modern (because your background and horse are sooo cool looking...) I would try maybe a sans serif, all caps (or not). Just play with it for a while. This has a chance to be a winner for the beach theme!
