    It would be easier if you numbered them and created a poll.

    ps call me crazy but I see 5 versions.

    @missjayellegee: I like the first one but I would use the actual date in English instead of Roman numerals.

    I love the IX.X.XI (I’m a 9-10-11 bride too) but I’m afraid other people won’t know what it means.  And personally, I feel like all of them except the last one, the P is overpowering in comparison to the other content, but that just might be the colors.

    Idk… they are all pretty but I feel like the 3 where the text is overlapping might be hard to see. The colors are too close together to overlap IMO but I do like the 2 that aren’t ๐Ÿ™‚ I think you should add a poll!

    I would pick the bottom one with 9.10.11 underneath. The roman is too confusing for most people.

    The bottom one is my favorite, I don’t really like having the texts overlapping each other . You are doing a good job so far though. Oh and I also perfer you using normal numbers rather than the roman numerals too.

    The monograms I am used to have 3 initials- the first letter of the bride and groom’s names and the first letter of their married surname.

     I think having both your first names in full will make it very difficult to use in some circumstances as it will either take up too much space, or be so compressed that it will be hard to read.

    I like the idea of incorporating the IX,X,XI and I am surprised that pp’s get it but think other people  won’t. I thought we all learned Roman Numerals in school.

    I like the second one with the Roman numerals better then the normal numbers.  It doesn’t get mixed up into the monogram, and I happen to like the IX.X.XI … how it’s a mirror image.

    The first one I looked at was number two, and I honestly read it as a weird version of the word “pixi.” ๐Ÿ™‚ Number six is my favorite becaue it looks so elegant, but if you wanted a smaller version as well you could use both it and number five. I think the large P would keep them similar enough that they could form a set.
