About the Design

comments from Lisa:

A moss initial adorns a white picket fence. For some this may signify visions of an ideal life that begins with marriage. Others may see this as the perfect theme for a casual, outdoor wedding reception.

I deleted one of my other designs that just wasn't working for me. Feedback please. I had a version with two initials hanging from the top, but I kept coming back to the fence. Does this say wedding?

I think is so sweet. I would try to find a font with rounded edges for the initial. Maybe instead of Backyards Bliss (I think of the front of a house with a picket fence) - something like... my hometown or almost home

I had my wedding reception at my parent's house. They live on a farm and you enter the driveway through a gate before driving down a long, long drive. I had a "B" and and an "N" (representing my maiden and married last name) made out of moss on the gate with swags of fresh greenery draping across the gate. I think a swag of greenery swinging from left, to the middle, to the right of the fence woud give the design a nice finished look. I agree with the "S" having rounded edges. That way it would appear to be more realistically formed from some type of greenery. I wouldn't recommend adding the rain pouring off from the greenery like you would find in my pictures from that day :)

You think my ideas are cute?~ this is darling!! Just something to keep in mind if you make the S more realistic like suggested below, you'll need to do the bow in a similar style too. But otherwise, very sweet!

Thanks for all the great comments! I will give your suggestions a try. Sydney, your wedding sounds exactly like what I was picturing- too bad about the rain.

I changed the initial to a rounded serif font and added garland. I still want to try a more realistic bow, but haven't had the time. For now, tell me....Yes or No on the ivy garland?

Save that ivy for later - it's so charming. It doesn't work here - the other design elements and clean and simplified. Try Arial Rounded bold for the S. =)

Thanks for the quick response, Amy! You confirmed my instinct to remove the ivy. Now, back to the initial, I posted it in Arial Bold to get your opinion. That was the first font I tried, but I'm just not sure about it. I wish it was a bit bolder. There aren't a lot of good san-serif rounded fonts.

I see what you're saying. Try a sanserif from this site - http://www.fontsquirrel.com/fonts/list/style/Sans Serif
