I realized that the type isn't centred correctly. Centred version, as well as navy and gold foil version below.

This is gorgeous, Kelly! Both colors are beautiful, but I'm leaning toward the ivory... it's so classic, and works well with the feel of your design :)

They are both so gorgeous, but I still vote for the navy.

They're both great. You can't go wrong! I voted B because I think it will stand out just a little more.

I voted B, but it was between B and C. Now that I'm looking more, I'm almost drawn more to C, but I don't think you can go wrong either way. I prefer the serif font - it competes less with the (gorgeous, by the way!) crest.

C for me. I think with the initials at that size, it makes a little more sense to say "save the date" under it with the names smaller. At least that's the rationale in my head haha

I love option A - but maybe only one monogram letter (last name) in the crest? If I was going to have such a beautiful monogram on everything I would want it to be for our last name :)

All of them are good, but I picked C, it seems more balance. Second choice A

This is wonderful, I love the elegant feel, Kelly! I chose C. The script names on A take away from the crisp botanical wreath. On C, since the couple is highlighted with initials at the top, the variance of having save the date the next bold text has a nice rhythm. (Yes, I really looked at this a few b/c is is awesome!) ;)

Soooo torn between B and C but I think I agree with Lea about the initials and names. The crest and colors are GORGEOUS.

Going with C, but really , I feel like the large type is competing with your pretty wreath/monogram. Maybe scale it down?

I like C because of the breathing space it is very classic and elegant. Just my suggestion

Also, I'm not sure if you need the names in such a large script. It competes a bit too much with your gorgeous monogram at the top. Maybe just a simple serif for the names?

I chose B but A is great too. I agree with Leah - I might like to see the names in a simple serif font so the top can be the focal point.

It is lovely in any color, so this was tough. I went with A however, because it has the best contrast.

I chose B. Even though the classic look is so beautiful too, I feel that the navy and gold match the style of the couple a little more and gives it that evening elegance appeal.
