I picked B- the best part of this design in my opinion is the combining of the couple's name and keeping the two different parts of the name in different fonts helps clearly communicate the concept.

i like B because it is clear with the two fonts that you have put their names together.

I love B, the two fonts work great together. One seems masculine and one a little more feminine, it really helps illustrate that two names are being put together.

I like B. The different fonts distiguishes the names and lends itself to be understood better by recipients.
