I love them both! But I voted A because I think it would pop more in the assortment and as people vote. B should definitely be a colorway, though!

I think the color palette in A is fresher and more modern, so it suits the design more. Lovely!

I think A will stand out more (love it!) but I love the color option of B, too! They are both really unique and lovely!

Both are nice, but the white/yellow/black caught my eye first! I think it's because the colors seem more modern which goes well with the design.

I love the modern feel of A. Beautiful design. The diagnol break in color plays off the slant of the letter A so well.

Looks like I'm the odd one out ;) I voted B. While I love the bright colors in A, the chartreuse keeps bringing my eyes down to the bottom corner and is competing with the really fun text and graphics. I like that in B, the colors are of equal brightness. But maybe use a darker color for the text (navy?) to pop it out a bit more. Really fun design!

It's a nice problem to have - to be torn over these. They are really pretty. I love both but I voted for A. It just pops and caught my eye and held it. It's really cool to be able to use such a bright color and still not have it be so loud. Really beautiful job.

BEAUTIFUL! I went with B for more traditional colours offsetting the modern elements.

Ok I LOVE A but I'm voting B bc while I think is designers love A, I'm thinking B will appeal to the minted customer more. But A should definitely be an optional color way.

Hi Carly, these are both really sharp, great design! Both colors are nice, but the soft palette in option B really stands out to me. Nice spacing of your text, looks great!

I really really love both colorways! I would be torn too. I voted A because it probably catches the eye a little more, and would make a great "master" colorway both for voting, and then for browsing through the "Save the Dates" assortment.

This design has a very 60s look to it and so the color in "A" really fits it much better than the paler colors of "B" Nice job.
