Have to do B - they don't want customizable elements submitted in foil :/

I like B bc you have more breathing space.. I think you don't need the frame, but that's just me!

I love your changes! One suggestion is maybe see how it looks with "formal invitation to follow" on one line and tighten up the tracking and leading just a spec? It looks like there is less tracking on the names and location compared to that but could be just a visual thing happening for me. Loving the new green color you picked and the botanical are beautiful! :)

Ooooo. I like where you are going with this. Green and foil are my new favorite color combos. I would try making the green background a little darker, but leave the botanical illustration as is. I feel like the values are too close together. Needs a bit more contrast.

hey Nazia, this is a beautiful design, but, i think the date is custom foil (as it will be different for each couple)... just check with minted if this will be possible...

B for me - the more formal centered layout works well with the overall elegance of the design. Great job and love the improvements!

I don't think there is enough contrast between the black and green. Maybe make the type the gold color or something light? Also: You can't have ink printed on top of foil (foil gets printed last) So it would have to be faux foil.

Your overall layout looks good! I feel like the center date and foil foliage are fighting/competing for attention. One or both needs to be a stronger focal point. Perhaps, you could try making the foil foliage a bit larger to your liking? Then adjust the weight of the date to compliment. Hope that helps!

I love the elements you have going here but I think you just need to work on your hierarchy a bit so you have a stronger focal point. Have you tried this on a portrait template instead of square? If you have a portrait size, you could increase the size of the foil/date elements significantly to make those a stronger focal point. I also agree that you need more contrast between the background and the text. Keep going with it because you have some beautiful elements here! :)

I agree with both Leah and Zhay - a portrait orientation may allow for the botanical to really shine, and the line weight needs to be thickened up a bit (or, conversely, you could try a lighter color for the background so that the body copy stands out more). Best of luck!

The main element looks great and I like the green and foil. Ithink the central design would fit better on portrait layout and decrease the size between the numbers. Rework where the names and city will go.
