Erin! Love the changes. I think it's definitely improved! Still in love with these florals. Wish you were my neighbor and could give me a lesson ;)

Hi Erin! I really am a huge fan of all your florals. You mentioned it feels wordy to you. I wonder if it's all the sentence case text? What if you utilized all caps in some areas, and italics in others. I think you're right to keep it one font overall, but I feel like the heirarchy is what's missing? Also, what does it look like with only the little girl's name in the script (changing "baptism" to Baskerville)? That might not look good, it was just a "what if" thought I had! It could be that none of that will improve it, too! haha. Just things I try when I get that "wordy" feeling (which happens to me a lot.... just look at this comment!).

Ditto to what Erin said, lovely florals and so distinctive! However,I would have the script either for the child's name or baptism. I don't think you need the day of the week, the date is enough (just for some breathing room) and the numeral date in the Baskerville again. Then for the Brunch line,I think since you're already providing the address you don't need "The Edelman..." I'm sorry the message is so long and I feel like it's too many changes,manybe this could give more breathing room... Lovely as always!
