I agree with the comments regarding the copy at the top. You're illustration is so adorable, it feels like the copy at the top is taking away from it. I would make it smaller, maybe non-scripty or put it on the bottom somewhere. Your illustration is just so sweet, I love it!

The text is all set in white now. I had to darken the background a tad for contrast. I tried it in black, but it was looking a little gloomy. I think the white looks elegant, and you do notice the illustration first. Thanks for the idea Christina! comments and suggestions welcome.

I do like it much better, the bottom is nice. Maybe the top copy could be more subtle the way you have the bottom copy(not so large and maybe "here comes the bride" in the franklin or the serif typeface). Very nice!

I love the bride. clever. I think you need a space before the word registered and a dash inbetween williams-sonoma.

I've updated the layout, and added some color. thoughts? I think the copy up top does look a lot better, thanks Ann!

I agree with Ann. I also think if the copy stayed with the color scheme of the women (maybe change the pink to black, beige, or white)? Not sure which combo, but I really like the women and feel the copy takes away from her at the moment.

Your illustration is really cute and I don't think having the type on top of it is doing it any service. I think if you make the info copy a bit smaller, maybe upper and lower case too, you'll have more room for the copy.
