Hi Jan! I'm actually heading out the door to take the kids to the dentist so I put together an example of what I was kinda thinking... Sometimes a visual helps more... & I'm not so good explaining my thoughts all the time ;) lol Obviously color choice is up to you. Hope this helps!

Hi Jan! I agree with Jennifer's suggestion below - put all the copy below the florals :) Im thinking the names could look good/stronger in the lime/yellow color. :)

I've listened to all your feedback and made changes - added some tiny foil flowers and reduced the size of wedding - which do you prefer A or B? thank you.

I like B. I'd work on the leading and tracking of all the wedding details now. it feels a bit crunched up :)

I like B the best! the word "wedding" just seems over powering in A.

Font changes to include a serif to add contrast with main word and also popped on some foil - which version are you drawn to?

Love the touch of foil in B! What do you think about adding a few foil accents to the flowers or leaves?

I've made some changes based on feedback and although I cried a bit when I had to get rid of the bulb from frontage - I survived the experience and admit it looks so much better - thanks Chris and Kimberley :)

Also thanks Nazia for your suggestion on another design to change the colors of the writing - I did it here also and it looks so pretty :)

changes look great Jan! I'd double check, but I think there is an extra space after beach. :)

Jan, the changes really helped. One other suggestion on the type... have you considered a serif font for the smaller type—date, time etc? A classic serif font would contrast nicely against the couples name and the word wedding. I also feel like the 12 is a little too harsh right now.

I like the die cut shape Jan. Only thing I would consider changing is the frontage from bulb to regular. Nice job!

The die cut looks great. and I agree with Chris, the I'm finding the dots in the font distracting.
