What do you think is wrong with the flowers? I think it looks great!

I think the flowers are really pretty, but I wonder if the text is a little smooshed on the bottom? I think the problem right now is that it looks like the text was just added under your flowers.  I think if you brought the text up a little bit, and added a couple more flowers so the flowers would also be visible below the gray textbox, you will get a little closer to your inspiration.

The design is gorgeous and I totally understand the design idea, but I feel like it’s almost a little TOO abstract? And the top right flower is cut off (which could have just been the photograph). Granted, I think it is gorgeous regardless and I would proudly display it, but I think I may see what you see.

I didn’t seen ANYTHING wrong with the flowers. I thought they look gorgeous! Then I clicked on the inspiration link and I do see the difference between the two invites. However, I think your invite is beautiful the way it is. Without having seen the inspiration pic, I was (and still am!) impressed. I think your guests will love it 🙂

i think the invite is lovely.  it looks very similar to your inspiration. the font is a bit hard to read.

good job.

Usually the time comes after the date. I think the design in general focuses too much on the flowers and not enough on the invitation elements. I’d give the text more space and if you insist on having the year (which I had myself, but is really quite obvious since invitations are issued 2-3 months before the wedding), I’d move it to a separate line and then put the time below that. You also need commas after “Saturday” and “May.” I cannot see if they are there. I’d also adjust your capitalization. You should either go all title case or all lower-case. Randomly capitalizing “request” and “four” seems odd. I like the flowers.

Pretty! The colors look a little washed out, but maybe it’s FI’s monitor. I agree that the date should come first.
