comments from Alexandra:

This quirky yet classy engagement party invitation substitutes couple's initials for element abbreviations on the periodic table. Numbers in the corner represent the couple's wedding date, and text is a play on some common chemistry ideas.. nerdy chic!

Hey Guys, here's another updated version, taking into account some of the below comments (thanks!). Any other thoughts? Any better? Worse?

I like the idea, but the handwritten scripts is not very readible... I would try using a more legible handwritten font? As for the title (Undeniable Chemistry), try a different sans serif, and/or try all caps? I don't know, I am new to this too, but thought I'd chip in !! Please feel free to go to mine and share your thoughts as well ! :) (I chose B)

I like C, I think. It lets the names stand out a little more than the others, and I am a sucker for the color "mint" :) I love that little heart down at the bottom!

This is pretty cute! I would switch the couples' names & "join us" info, so you know its an engagement party and not a wedding invite. Also "friday" can be a bit closer to the date. Watch your location & address so they don't overlap. Have fun with it, it has a lot of potential, the underlines and smudges just need to be in the right place to highlight the info.

Wow, this is so original! I do love the note-taking approach, but it is a bit hard to sort through the info. I think you need to establish a hierarchy so people know the order to read the notes in. Maybe an additional font? I really like this!

Awesome,very clever! I agree with Sabrina,may be you could go with a more modern serif font,(maybe bodoni or didot) so that its more crisp & clean. It's a bit scattered now,a little tweaking & this is design awesomeness! :)
