I've adjusted the main text so everything is the same size. Is that better? Do you like it with or without the initials? I can't decide!

I would order this in a pink version

So simple and lovely without the initials. Gorgeous!

I love the initials, they are so unique and add a nice touch. Minor edits, but I would move down "request your presence..." 2 points, its too close to the tail of "and". Beautiful stuff!

Option A is too busy, B is cleaner and simple!

I love the watercolor with the initials! It adds a really great touch that's very on-trend. I think there's too much variety in the text though and it distracts from the main element. Perhaps have all of the information all the same size and font (except for the names and "and" and "reception to follow")?

Love the combination of fonts, and the watercolor is beautiful! The date/location information could maybe be a little more balanced (all the same size, or close to it?) - but really it is working nicely. :)

The watercolors are beautiful. The A is a little hard to read, but its decorative, so it doesn't matter that much. I think you could take out the "two thousand fourteen" to achieve more balance.

I really love the layout and watercolor effect - just a thought, have you tried removing the initials from the water color and just let it stand on it's own - I think it would give a little rest in between the copy - just my thoughts :)
