I *love* this idea! So cute! Even the words "formal attire" mirror the veil and bow tie.

and, if this gets picked, I would draw the veil for each possible letter variant, so that it "fits" that letter and doesn't look all stretched out...

Cute idea! My only suggestion would be to add a knot in the center of the bow-tie perhaps? :-) Love the colors too....

So fun! Love the expression in your work. The casual font and formal 'formal attire' are a nice touch.

cute idea. will this work on all initials? what if the bride's name starts with a U, L or V? what if the grooms name starts with an O or C? have you tried it out?

Thanks for the feedback, Kelly. Yes, it will work with any initials - although, the size of the veil and headpiece may have to be adjusted for a few of the letters, or sit only on the center point (like on W). The bowtie can be place on the left stroke of a letter that does not have a center stroke, such as O and C.
