I chose B. It was a very hard decision, because I really love both. I like that you can see more of the beautiful watery background. That being said, you really can't go wrong with either option.

I like B as it feels like the type is more organic and more compatible with the art! Love it!

B, I love the relationship between the script font and the movement of the watercolor

In the minority here, but I adore A! It seems to strike the right balance without the design being too overwhelming. This is definitely something I would be interested in buying! ;)

I chose A for sure! i think the type is a nice bold contrast and is not competing with the beautiful art. I do think the type needs to scooch up a tad though. just a scooch;)

I love the vertical layout of A, but would love to see the names of the bride and groom in the same script used in B.. the script has an organic feel to it, which pairs perfectly with your organic watercolor + dabs of gold! Very nice, Jen!

I love the fonts you used in option A. I feel like they continue the serene feel you have accomplished in your beautiful watercolor painting. I do, however, love the larger watercolor though in option A. Have you tried the fonts of B on the layout of A? If that does not work, I would for sure stick with option B. This is beautiful Jen!

Uhg! Such a hard choice- they're both great- but I picked A. I just really love the typefaces you've selected here and the additional touch of the ampersand in the mint.

A. Both are great but I think A is visually stronger and more legible.

i did not really know what to pick, but there more i look at it, the more i prefer B, and my reason is that it feels more romantic. i would move the whole text block (including the 2 lines of 'join us') down 2/3 ticks. :) i might consider engravers for the names here.

I prefer the layout and typography in B. It seems to work with the design better overall in terms of scale. Good luck!
