Took some of the suggestions to heart (even though this might be the first time I've ever NOT used a script on an invite... my brides are always so girly). Added some texture to a handful of the ribbons at the suggestion from a friend/co-worker/rockstar Mintie. I'd like to develop at least one more colorway, just to "get to know" the design a little more. Thanks for the feedback so far!

I love the changes too! Would also like to see additional "light and bright" color way as amy mentioned. Congrats on your first entry!

Your changes are on point! League Gothic was a great choice as is the thinner Neutra

This is my first submission, so any feedback would be great. The first two versions were just me trying to get the image legible on-screen. I see I have a little typo, so I'll fix that in the next round, but I'd love to hear from a few people before changing anything else. Thanks!

this is very lovely! i attempted a streamer effect once and just couldn't get it to look right and you did this perfectly. :) My only comment - i think i would leave 'sweet briar estate' in the same font as the other copy that way the names kind of get their own special treatment; i think it brings focus away from the names and beautiful streamers, but it's just an opinion and it looks fabulous as is :)

I like the hanging ribbons. I might play with the colors a little. Think light and bright. I'm not sure the fonts play well the illustration quite yet. The ribbons are very straight and modern I would think more along that lines for the fonts. Hope that helps.

I really like it. Agree with the location font. If you want to make it stand out maybe just add it in all caps or italicize?

I like your ribbons!!! Have you tried a more bold & modern font for the typography? Maybe even something as basic as Futura?

Welcome to Minted and congrats on your first submission! Beautiful design - I love your ribbon streamers! I agree with the above comments - keeping the location in teh same font as the other supporting type, maybe doing the supporting type in all-caps and Futura, and trying some brighter colors. Best of luck to you!
