Hi Ella! I am going with A for the name, and B for the rest of the type - but I am thinking some more spacing up at the top between "please join us for a" and "baby shower" could help (honoring seems to be a little lower, and equal spacing there would be nice). Also, even though your font is smaller at the bottom for the registry, maybe keep the spacing similar there as well. Those are my thoughts! Nice work!

A for me, though I think the information could be a bit more spaced out on the bottom near the registry info? I like the updates - this is such a fun and colorful invite!

I prefer the boldness of B for Mom's name as it seems to go more with the bold confetti. I think maybe try to make that inner white circle more "even" and maybe more oval. Some people will have long names.

Hi Ella! I like the script font in the name for A. I think this works well with your design. For the rest of the type, I'd love to see the top three lines spaced out a bit, and the bottom two lines as well, just a bit more space between the lines of type in general. Also, I don't know if this would improve the design (and maybe you've already tried it!) but I'd love to see a version where the confetti is broken up a bit more around the edges, so there are a few more pieces removed, closest to the inner circle edge. I hope that makes sense! I would like to see it with a less defined "circle" shape. However, hard to say if that will work well or not and they way you already have it might be best!

I like A. Bold colors! I think the more script font softens it up a little bit.

I like your changes, Ella! I might still edit out a few more, in a way that helps the confetti feel more random instead of evenly scattered. I prefer the type in B except for the name, and I recommend removing the period at the end of the registry line. Your colors look great!

I like the colors of A better! Some of the areas around the edges look a bit sparse, but otherwise this is really cute! I like the shapes and the pop of color!

I love the colors on A. But yeah, definitely give your type some room to breathe. And given the fun confetti look, you could probably simplify the type a bit too.

I like both, but think I prefer B! Can you do a shades of pink or purple version for a girl? I like that there is more white space in B. I love the shapes and think they look like confetti! Very fun, pretty design!

I like A - maybe add a little more white space around the wording to let it breath a little more?

I like the colors on A but I like the extra space on B - you could probably give even a little more space

i like A but i think you could cut out some more of the colored shapes/confetti so it's not as busy :)

I love the colours in A! I think you could probably just use one or two fonts for the text, since the graphic elements are such a focal point.

I love A! The colours are fun and it feels really celebratory and modern. I agree with some other comments about giving the type some more breathing room. Maybe try pulling the confetti out a bit further so there's some space around the lettering? Really great, fun design!
