Thanks again everyone! I toned down the middle horizontal lines so if someone likes the previous one better, let me know ASAP : )

Aww, that's such a good idea! I really like the use of separators and the typography. Good work.

Thanks, everyone!! Should I keep the one above, or the one below? Wasn't sure if the black ampersand circle is too dominant?

I love this version, Jennifer! the ampersand is a wonderful way to draw readers into the design and all the beautiful type! OK, was I the only ding dong to read the bottom line as "o festivities to follow o?" I am guessing yes!

I know you have the last names aligned with the circle but I still think it would look better centered with the first name. Just my opinion though! lovely design!
