About the Design

comments from Hannah:

Falling Ribbons takes a new approach to a striped design by making the background look like different strips of ribbon. It uses retro-inspired fonts and a spin on a traditional layout for a perfect balance between classic and modern.

BIG fan of the ribbon look! something different and could definitely match a lot of wedding decor - what a great idea to incorporate elements from room/gift decor into the invitation instead of the other way around!

HI Hannah, I voted for C. The aqua ribbons with dark grey type works well together. Too many colors and the background gets too busy. Option A still works well but I love the addition of color.

C) I love the turquoise. Try making your text navy and it will really flow. D) is also tons of fun, sends a much brighter message than your original!

I love C - the cascading ribbons are such a cool concept and the aqua creates a great contrast between the background and text.

Hannah I like C with the aqua ribbons. Looks so sharp!

Great concept. The ribbons cut off at the bottom add interest. You might want to consider the ribbons in slightly lighter tints so they fight less with the type. Also consider colored ribbons.

This is such a creative way to use ribbon on a wedding invitation and you can never go wrong with ribbon! A great touch without adding a lot of bulk. Contemporary but in a classic, beautiful way. It's perfect for those brides that want a sweet touch without going over the top with color.

I really like this concept. Play around with some colors to make it really pop!
