Well, it’s very ornate…I guess it depends on what the theme/vibe of your wedding will be. It feels like a bit much to me but I could see it working really well with a French Baroque theme.

I find the first letter hard to read, is it an E or an F? Have you tried using an oval rather than a circle? I feel like you have a lot of white space above and below.

ETA: I like the little floral detail at the top and how ornate it is, it really goes well with the font you chose. Do you think you could chose something similar for the rest of the frame? I think the font is very ornate and baroque, but the floral detail around the frame is more blocky/silhouette and almost the “modern take” on baroque. So I’d say either make all the frame and that little header really ornate, or change the header to be blocky/silhouette like the rest and see how it looks.

I agree about the white space and the oval being another option.  Or you can try making the B taller.  I like the colors but I think the orange is a little too bright.  It makes it hard for the eye to rest and focus on one thing.  Maybe try adding some gray to the orange to calm it down.  I like the floral border, it’s really nice.  I think the font could be a little simpler, but still keeping the organic look, so that it doesn’t conflict with the ornate border.

@bakerella:

I was having a really tough time figuring out the first letter too, I think it is an F..

Sorry I can’t help you with the name of that font!

As far as the design goes, here’s my two cents’ worth.  The floral designwork on the outside looks great and I absolutely love it!  What concerns me is that the outside is a flat design, whereas the font and the motif on top look three-dimensional.  I would recommend making the whole thing either flat or three-dimensional for consistency.

Secondly, the PP had a point… the font you chose would be well-suited for an opulent grandiose royal style wedding.  That font reminds me of women in corsets and men in powdered white wigs!  So keeping that in mind, you should make sure that the style of the font accurately reflects the style you’re planning for your wedding (and the budget you have to pull off that style).

May I suggest steering in the direction of one of these fonts?

This one has the three-dimensional look, so you’d have to think about making the outside design match it:

Maybe some of these ideas along the vintage theme will help the creative juices flow…

you definitely need a less ornate font with that frame!

Are you using those colors together?  Because while I agree with PP about the fonts and the frame i like the colors together

@Anna7548: What program are you using? I can’t see it in your screenshot, it’s so teeny! If it’s Illustrator, there are tons of free vector websites where you can get some awesome vintage frames, I can point you towards a few.
