You brought it back - yay! Peach for me! I totally understand the 'bore' concern. That said, a lot of brides do still love the traditional feel and type treatment too! Both are a win, but I love B. :)

Love both but voted A because how novel it is & the gradual color change is just beautiful.

Option A is very lovely and took my vote.. Wanted to add (sorry!) but I just saw your initial version with the peachy/rose color and really love it with your initial type treatment! It's soft and very elegant, can you submit it additionally?

Hey Lena, I think I can...? I just felt like the Burgues/Caslon pair was getting boring to look at lol

I like A! The change-up in tones is unexpected and beautiful :) And I think the typefaces fit the artwork vibe as well!

I chose B because I think it looks best for voting. BUT I think this would be stunning in foil. I agree with Lena about the type... I feel like this is a bit too casual.

Hi Erin, going with B, love your style! Oh, just saw the peach version. Why not add that to the poll? :)

Of these I'd go with A- but I have to agree with Debb, I'm partial to the peach version as well-- it's absolutely gorgeous!!

A. The additional colors in the background give it more depth and interest.
