I went with option B. I think having the time spelled out in Option A makes it look too busy. I also preferred the font you used for "RSVP" in option B. it helped add some balance and consistency to it. It's a wonderful design!

The text works well as a unit.

I like the slightly more simple approach in A. Best of luck!

the graphic is adorable! The "MAY22" kind of grabs my attention. Is there a way to align that with the height of the time and address?

This is a darling idea. I love the nest with the two eggs, and I think it plays very well with foil. The only thing I would suggest would be: the text with the date/time/location information feels a little cramped to me, and the date and time feel too similar. maybe break them up somehow and give everything a little more white space. Well done!

Nice design! The only consideration for change for me would be the "and", maybe something a little softer, thinner font lines.

I LOVE the illustration. I think the type could use a bit of work. The word "and" feels much too heavy than the rest of the text. I would try it in something lighter (a lighter weight to it). And maybe try out some other options for the script text ("rsvp" and the couple names). Overall beautiful concept and illustration. Best of luck!

I love it Jacki! I can't see if it's already donde, but if not I would add foil on the eggs dots to integrate them even more with the nest. Congrats for so nice design :)

How...precious! I am a twin and I can just feel the extra love in this sweet design! I love how the type is sweet but still maintains a "boyish" quality :) Keep up the good work, Jacki!

In my opinion, i think this is great as-is. While I understand what some are saying about the alignment, I think that having it the way it is adds some interest and emphasis on certain parts of it. Personally, the date and time are most important and having them sized the way you already have done is a great way to emphasize that.

There is some great feedback here already. I definitely think you should change the "and" as it overpowers the names. Maybe just an ampersand in the same font & color as the names. I also love the idea of foil speckles on the eggs.

Love the little nest! I agreed with the suggestions the and and rsvp are a little strong. Beautiful color palette
