Maybe if you bold up the names a bit and use the yellow in the "save the date" it will punch things up a bit. I feel like the names are getting a little lost. Love the idea, btw!

Really like the three icons lined up in a column! My suggestion is to separate "It doesn't matter how you get there, just" into two lines. I think this will allow the bride and groom's name line to stand out better.

This is a great idea! I'm not crazy about how Mr. Sheffield is working in the design though. Maybe Gill Sans would work better?

Love this! I agree with her comment to keep the type in a san serif, since it has a modern, streamlined feel to it. Love the icons!!
