comments from Paula:

Hand drawn Japanese Magnolia Blossoms for a Modern Wedding with a romantic flare. A nice combination of a geometric shape and soft petal flowers.

C for me. I think the pink box is a little too heavy and takes away from how pretty and light the flowers are.

i like C. it feels more airy. i'm not sure you need the box around the type. eliminating it would give you more free space to play with the type. and maybe try the names in a dark pink rather than green :)

This is lovely Paula. Your flowers are very pretty & I certainly think you should go with the other version. Perhaps you could have the italicized font for the :for the wedding of" text for added visual interest. I hope I make sense,but this is a lovely design. Lastly,welcome to Minted!

Now I'm not sure if maybe it's to plain and needs more flowers? See attached with more flowers.

the type in A is more classic and compliments the illustration perfectly.

I love the simplicity and white space of fewer flowers. Beautiful!

Beautiful! My only suggestion would be to add to the poll an option where the pink background is a white background with a thin pink outline? Your florals are so lovely!
