Polling for the best color combination. Also I have limited Minted approved font access but are the fonts okay with this design? Thank you.

Okay new poll- which colorway?? I intentionally went fairly gender neutral but also tried to keep the colors fresh and modern.

I like your layout and graphics, Lisa, but I think the type is too light to be reversed out of this color. You might want to try a heavier weight, with additional tracking and leading.

I agree with Carol Lisa. The tiny font with cramped leading is making the design crowded & makes me feel that I have too much read. Go for a Futura or Quicksand. Secondly I don't think you need to tilt the "on the" text on the ribbon. Lastly, you might need to rephrase your venue info,for example remove "The Jackson residence" that seems redundant & also your RSVP name is too long to fit in your text,which again makes it too much for the eye to read. I hope I make sense & was helpful enough :)

They really all do work well, tough choice! I chose B, the contrast of this one jumped out at me the most, but I also really like C, and A is a classic choice.

Love.love,love the changes, my first choice is B & C being the second but I voted for C for clarity of the text,I'm having readability issues in B. I suggest for B to go with a bolder choice of font,that tiny text is difficult to read. I absolutely love where this is heading... :)

Thank you all for the feedback. I am going to buy some fonts tomorrow. Do you mind giving me a few suggestions for better readability with this design? Nazia?

i like A but C is a close second! that blue paired with the colors on your illustration are lovely. i wonder if you could combine the white background and add some little blue accents somewhere? :)

oooh - I really like the Kraft version!!! However, I think it's a bit hard to read the white text...maybe a bolder set?

This is adorable! I think A is your best bet, though I do love the hint of mint in D. Maybe A with a slightly more minty green? :)

Based on the feedback I got ride of the detail in the bottom middle. I changed one of the fonts from Arial to Comfortaa and increased the leading for a more airy look.

Which elements do you prefer in the corners and bottom middle section? Corner details determined the overall shape as well. This is my first invitation/stationary design submission so if there is other critique you have I am all ears. Thanks so much!

B for me. The trees seem a little out of place on A and I love the sweet foxes laying down in the bottom corners of B.

I prefer A with the trees, and I don't think you need the little dingbat underneath the text. Seems out of place.

B for me. Love your clean geometric florals :) I like the flowers on the corners but I'd remove that scroll which sits above the flowers at the bottom, ( it looks unnecessary to me).As far as your type, how about going with Futura instead of arial regular & increase the leading for your details, it will give some airiness rather than make it look so cramped. I hope I was helpful :)
