I think that's just personal preference. I love everything. First and last too... :-)

I like the font better. I wonder what it would like with the entire floral branch frame screened back. Just a thought. It just seems like there is a lot going on or maybe try dark grey text, I don't know just thinking out load here.

I like it better than the pink. Did you try the names in the dark gray? May make them stand out more.

I love the white, pure elegance. I like the names in white too. Perhaps decrease a wee bit on the futura size and leading? Maybe if your grey 'strokes' of your florals were a tiny bit thinner your jacques&gilles will balance better. Oh Im sorry about all the rambling! Still one of my favs. ;)

Love the added detail in the florals Lehan. I thin kit helps alot. I can read the pink fine. But maybe a different, more casual script would go with the florals better, like pushkin maybe. That might not be right but I feel like the one you have is too formal for the floral style.

Wow! Love the gray and white foliage on the kraft...gorgeous! I agree with Stacey about considering a simpler font. I would also be curious to see what the names look like in white. The pink just feels a little out of place. Overall you've got a lovely design Lehan!

Great updates. Those forals are gorgeous. Really helps to see a little bit of the kraft in the center. Great job :)

Really pretty floral pattern, love it! I do kind of agree with the pink. Up close it's fine, but from thumbnail size where most customers will be looking, it's a bit hard on the eyes. Maybe do the names in white and the "&" in pink to pull in that color?

I like it a lot Lehan. I think possible another detail in the center of the florals would help, even if it knocks out to the kraft paper image. They seem a little like cotton balls right now. And did you try a dark chocolate instead of the grey or a deeper charcoal? That might help it.

I really like this design, though I'm finding the hot pink script difficult to read on the craft background.

I like that pink, but the names feel secondary to the rest of the text because the white is brighter. Have you tried the supporting type in teh gray color, the names in white and the "and" in pink? Just a thought. But, I think I kinda like those pink names, too...tough call.

Oooh, lovely! The white florals are brighter but I can read the script just fine. I like the boldness of the white flowers but you could try reducing the opacity of the white and see if you like that better. I really love it as is.

I like it the way it is and feel this is a fresh take on wedding invites. Pink reads fine to me.

It looks great and legibility is not a problem here.

Really lovely, Lehan! Love the florals + hot pink! Type looks fine to me - love Belluccia. The only thing I would suggest is changing the "and" between the names to Didot instead, but I think that's just personal preference. Really looks great, as is! :)
