I think you need to rethink the font combinations. The hierarchy of information is a little lost because there are so many different fonts at the moment (e.g. the date and time looks a little bit off because the two fonts don't quite work together). I do like the colour combination and the little curved line elements though! :)

Hummm...You need more of a contrast with the text and the background. I also think all the blows of wind are maybe too much in the four corners and then by "you are cordially". I'd eliminate and do the diecut with the curved edges template. I also think the monogram is out of place and would just delete it. You also might want to adjust the spacing between letters int he names. I'd focus on the "wedding" and then the names / date as that works. Hope it helps :)

I like the color of A the best but the date/time layout of B....I voted A. I think you need more contrast in the type. The bride and groom's names and "wedding of " all have about the same weight in your layout. I'd try to make one or the other stand out. Hope that helps and makes sense.

I can't decide, they are all looking lovely :) I think I am leaning B - but I still love the colors of A too.

B for me! Love the color scheme and how you have the date on this one. You may try increasing the stroke slightly on the couples names just a touch :)

B feels best to me, though I think I would simplify and only use the swashes in a few key places.

I vote B as well. I might bump up the time text to line up with the date text (perhaps bump the date text down so they meet in the middle). Maybe base align the middle lines of text?

A. I like the way the text color is a deeper tint of the background. I think the text inside the white shade needs to be smaller and centered vertically as well as horizontally :)

I like the background colors on A and B! I might play around with the red/pink text and lines to see if any other colors work better. Maybe try a deep teal or turquoise for the names and lines on option B? :)
