Nothing says spring or summer wedding like bold yellow flowers. Created to express a lovely warm weather wedding either indoors or in your favorite garden spot, this Save the Date is sure to be a true statement maker.

I like the colors and shape of the flowers. I agree with Ann on this one. I might even remove two of the flowers and let the type breathe since it's a decorative font.

Love the floral bursts here! I think you can find maybe a lighter font for the main text. It feels a bit too heavy against the bold florals.

I love the boldness, but agree that a little more whitespace would help the text pop more.

I am so excited by all of the support on this design. It was such a fun one to create. Thanks big time for all of the feedback and guidance. I absolutely gave all suggestions a try...especially giving the text some air by pulling back the flowers. I found when I pulled back too much it completely changed the appeal not for the better and with time creeping up I altered the blooms slightly giving it a hair more room and increased the text size. Wish I would have had more time to work it out...but this one still makes me smile. Thanks again for all of the support!!!! It means so much!

This is really nice and I love your colors. To me the proportions seem a bit off. I think I'd make the flowers a bit smaller and the type a bit larger.
