Any feedback is greatly appreciated. What do you think of the color? I would like something that is broad enough and gender neutral for all couples to use.

A. I don't think the second bar is adding anything more to the design.

Hey! Did you try the 'Save the Date' without a white bar behind it? I think you may not need it... it feels like its competing with the large date circle a bit - and I think you can let the date circle win :)

A couple thoughts - Colorwise, I think I'd choose that dark mint green color that's on the graffiti area. I'd also shift your circle with the date up a bit so it's not going over a piece of the wall. Last thought is to maybe keep the translucent bar behind save the date, but take it away from the name and getting married part. Some things to play around with!

I like where this has started, Lauren! I agree with Michelle about aligning your color palette with colors found in the photo. It will streamline your overall look. Also, I might move everything - including the photo, down, so your text isn't scrunched up at the top. Or, you could try moving just the text down to the bottom, and your circle with date closer to the top. Good luck!
