i like this better. I dont think you need the heart and I would make the "joshua & lauren..." line all black or all red and maybe all caps like the rest of the invite.

i like the idea here, but i have a few design suggestions. for me, the blue line at the top is unnecessary. it adds visual clutter to an already full design and it makes the "lauren" part look a little bit awkward, crossing the line the way it does. i think you should do without the blue line. if you do get rid of that, i think you could move the ring up and make it a bit larger to give the body text more room to breathe. along those lines, i think some of your text could use a little bit more letter-spacing - particularly the line at the top.

i agree with what has already been said, esp. about the blue line. What if you ran the top line (Joshua & Lauren met online and fell in love) around the outer curve of the ring?

Great idea, Wendy - the online part is very clever! May I suggest that you add just one "met" on the line before "online" and eliminate the duplicate ones? I also think both names should be in the red color because that yellow is not used anywhere else in the design. I think the all-caps is fine, but I would suggest eliminating the "face to face" so you can bring the top two lines down far enough for the top line to be full-justified like the rest of the text block. Your ring is very pretty, but I'm almost thinking it may be suited for a design all its own, without the "online" theme. Maybe the text block could just be alone on the right side (under "fell in love" so this one focuses on the "online" aspect and is modern and type-based?
