Hi Heather, I like the two lines better as posted as it looks more elegant.

love love love! awesome ampersand - the 3-d effects are perfection. The color scheme and textural elements are also really beautiful.

Looking sweet! Only suggestion would be to emphasize the date a little more - maybe try it in bold or caps?

Love the movement of this, Heather! I might add a little more space between the rule lines and the text on the bottom. Otherwise, this is lovely.

Love the ampersand and the texture.. wondering what it would look like slightly smaller with a little more breathing room...

LOVE!!! Not sure about the red futura text. Feels likes an odd line to emphasize - might try their full names or the date?

hey heather, love the curvy ampersand and banners! I might lose the large red text in the center and let the top half stand out on its own. Maybe you could bring all the supporting text down and close it up. Was also thinking this could be cool as a horizontal with the red banner including both their names as it stretches across...

Love it Heather! I agree with Amy about the font. Perhaps another choice would will work even better with your beautiful ampersand and ribbons. :)

hey heather, since you asked me, my vote goes to horizontal version, all italic supporting type - very bottom right version. I also like the vertical left, second one down with the couple's names in gray italic archer. Feel free to comment on any of my submissions, please and thank you in advance!

I like the first one. I think the "stamp" takes away from the ampersand and love that the names, which are the most important, are bold and in red.

Hey Heather! I like the horizontal version (gives your artwork some breathing room) with the stamp on the bottom. I don't think you can really go wrong with any of these options. I feel the stamp and ampersand are competing too much with eachother in the version where they are overlapping so maybe steer away from that one unless its your favorite. :)

I agree with Carol - bottom right, horizontal layout, no stamp. Looks great!

Bottom right for me too! I think you need to capitalize the R in "rd."

Oh Heather! this is so hard to pick just one, but I like the first one on the left (no stamp) with the names in red. I like the horizontal too, but i think the ribbons are too long. Maybe the horizontal with the shorter ribbons? hope this helps :)
