Is this design to busy with the watercolor florals?

I don't think it's too busy. But, I wonder if you layered the florals more, so the geo frame had a more woven effect, it might create more cohesion between the two elements. Gorgeous florals! Love!

I don't think it's too busy. The only thing I see that could cause an issue is the flower close to the registry info. If it's a longer name, it would overlap. But overall a very pretty design!

No I love the a-symmetric design! I think it looks great!

I agree with Carrie! I like the symmetric look :)

The only place that I would consider moving it would be towards the bottom where it says "Anna is registered". It comes really close to touching those words, and with a longer name it might actually touch. None of the other floral elements come close to the words except for there, so it looks unintentional. Hope that helps! :) (love the watercolors!)

I would maybe just take some of the type out of all caps, and in the areas it is all caps, not italic and add some tracking. That will make it a little more airy. Love the illustration!

Beautiful flowers! I would consider a different background color, to look more soft.

It's a little right heavy- maybe just keep the floral in the bottom right and move one to the top left and remove the third one, keeping it balanced but still exciting. They colors are a little vibrant and springy feeling compared to the dark gray background- which disconnects the design a little bit. Maybe change the background to cream? Or mute the flowers a little.. dusty colors are very on trend!

I like the colors and the placement of the florals, but I would consider moving each paragraph a little closer to the next (ex. Decrease space between "Charlotte, North Carolina" and "hosted by...") to make the text feel more cohesive. It's ok to have some negative space in the top and bottom of polygon. Possibly also decrease the size of the registry line or put it in lowercase to help with hierarchy. The flowers are gorgeous, though, and I really love the blues contrasted against the darker background :)

Use some variation in separating the blocks of text - it looks too choppy this way. Collect your blocks of text in groupings that make sense. Don't leave equal space between the blocks, I mean. The colors are nice, I'd move the leaf away from Anna at the bottom. It's too tight there.
