About the Design

comments from David:

This design was inspired from the simple beauty of the ampersand character and what it represents when a man and woman are joined in marriage. The ampersand’s curving lines, extending scrollwork, and pop of color, make it the centerpiece of the design.

I love the ampersand illustration! I agree that the time of the ceremony is not really significant and doesn't need to be huge. If you want to make another item big, I would make the venue bigger instead, it's more interesting and important.

This is so pretty! It looks like the names might be a bit off center? Also, I think I would rewrite the text as "3 o'clock" or "3 o'clock in the afternoon" instead of using "PM". I love the ampersand design!

Hi there :) Lovely - bit of advise - I would keep the time small like the other bottom copy and Im wondering if the date is necessary over the design at all, perhaps add it to the bottom text and lose the banner. this is really a lovely design! (i misght also consider dropping the frame and moving everything down a bit )
