So sweet! I agree with the comments in regard to type/spacing. For me, I don't think you need the word, "tea", on the teapot. I would focus instead on highlighting that cute little floral pattern on the interior!

I like your type broken apart to the top and bottom. Looking good! The join us type is a little hard to read probably because it's so condensed. I'd either make it larger or try a different font (maybe the same font as your date/time info. And I would lower case an and at.

I like the vertical format! I think a script font would look great for the top two lines, to go with the steam. Also, I don't think you need the "join us for" on the pot. Maybe add "An Engagement Tea Party at" above "The Chicago Botanical Gardens?" I think the "join us for" text on the pot detracts from the illustration. Good luck!

A for me, too. I think I'd split the bottom line into two lines and use a shorter font. Love the vertical format!

Really liking the vertical format on this. If it were mind, I think I'd make the tea pot a bit smaller and play around with the type a bit more. Maybe see how the first line of copy will look above the teapot since it's sort of an intro. Also, I'd lower case the e in engaged.

I like A! Perhaps say 'Emma & Brad are Engaged" vs. getting engaged, which will allow room to make the type size of that line larger ;) Super cute, Nazia!

one more suggestion...I think this design may be better suited to a vertical format.

A and agree with Kim on vertical. Then you step up the size of the type.

Hi Nazia, I like your font choice better and agree with Kim that maybe this would work better as a vertical design. Your type is fairly small and customers have said they prefer larger type. The vertical format would give you more room to play around with the copy.

Cute illustration. I picked the colors in C, although A is a close second. Not a huge fan of your type on the bottom. I think I would make the teapot a bit smaller to give you more room for the copy, and change the typeface to something more free flowing to go better with the feel of your illustration. JMO!
