This looks so great!!!! You have so many great entries this round! I have one small suggestion... maybe just bring the font size of the names slightly down to leave a little more space around your wonderful florals!

Gorgeous! This is so pretty and fun, Chris. I love the changes. I would either make "please save" a point or two larger or change it to the same font as "for the wedding of". Just my opinion :)... in reality its probably fine as is but a little hard to read on my screen. Really well done!

LOOOOVE this. I do find that the "Save" and Swirls blend into the art too much and get lost. Maybe more space around them or even a new font? I like the font at the bottom. Don't think you need the floral line between the two either.

very lovely illustrations :) agree about the text - Luella seems like a suited font for your illustrations - and i think the date should also be bolder and straight..'for the wedding of' perhaps in a more 'generic' font like futura and smaller, so the names and the date become the focus. i prefer the open black space (ie without the white swirls) sorry about the lot! just my 2c.
