I think it looks nice!! It’s clean and simple! Is that what you were going for?

I love the layout.  Clean and classic, with a modern twist.  The A + A is SO cute!  Great work.

I like that it is not overly busy, but has some interesting details!

Personally it’d look better in my opinion with just a slight pop of color.  I can understand sticking though to your colors.  It looks fine though without the color.

@colorofmyheart:  I say ditch the comma on the top line. I love me some letterpress, and I really like the minimalist aesthetic you’re going for. The fonts are really nice and cohesive

Personally, these are changes I would make:

– A more punchy, romantic quote/phrase under the A+A, that one isn’t evocative enough for my taste

– The wording of the “invite you to…” and “a ceremony on the beach” are somewhat cumbersome. I like the wording here, and it’s not overly formal or stuffy, but conveys a real “wedding-y” message

*** And in a crazy uninvited twist, I can’t help but notice that the shape of your wording on the right nearly makes a heart as it is. With only minor tweaking (keeping the fonts, because they rock, but losing the A+A= <3) you could make it a heart shape on a square card, which would be the most delightful thing EVER! (a la this)

Love the design and the fonts! Looks like something you could buy 🙂

 

That said, I would take the quote below A + A out altogether. You either turn your head or the invitation to read and it just doesn’t flow right to me.

Very nice. Elegant & modern but still kinda fun.

Super cute!  Personally, I don’t like quotes on wedding invites so I’d take out the quote under your initials.  Also, can you add some color?!?  Maybe put the A+A=<3 in color?  Even if you don’t make any changes, it’s still a great design!

Is this flat print, thermography, or letterpress? With the minimalist design, it would really pop with letterpress on some nice thick cardstock!
