    I actually like the old brackets better. I feel like these are too stylized and you need something bolder and plainer so you’re not taking away from your ampersand as the center of visual interest.

    hmm i think i would try to find a middle ground bracket. i like the old one because it was so bold and really drew your attention, but i feel like the shape of this bracket fits your invitation better. can you make this bracket bolder?

    i like the circles, but i’m having a hard time visualizing how it will turn out due to all of the different types. can you make up just 1 sample?

    I like the new brackets.

    I have to say, since you asked specifically, the big, bold circles at the bottom? They’re a little … gosh, I don’t even know the word. Distracting maybe?

    I think because the rest of the design is so simple, clean, and then *BAM* big circles of red and gold and purple! It was actually hard for me to stop looking at them and look at the fonts/text. I don’t know what to do though to make it better … maybe wash them out? shrink them? Make them bleed off the page so they take up less space? (one of those, certainly not all) Or considering making some of your fonts have coordinated colors?

    I like the bolded brackets… But I don’t get how the circles fit with the actual invitations design…  The actual invitation is so whimsical and romantic, then the circles on the rest of the inserts just don’t seem to fit, it’s more fun/eclectic/modern.  Don’t get me wrong, I think you did an awesome job, I just don’t think it “flows” good as a whole set.

    ETA:  I think incorporating the circles on the actual invitation would be a good way to tie it all together.

    I like the bolded better. It doesn’t feel like it’s competing as much for the CVI, since it becomes it. Perfect!

    Are you still planning on printing these inside of a bigger bracket/frame?

    Like this:
    **I tried to make this super tiny, it’s just a “see what I mean” visual I made, because I thought that was what your drawing was of. I don’t know why weddingbee won’t let me resize…


     

    I think your suite looks really beautiful. The gold cardstock is going to be soooo pretty.

    Plus the letterpressing, love it. You’re probably right about what an undertaking this it, but

    it will be so worth it when they are all done!!

    @MandaMack: You’re right, I didn’t see your first post 🙂 Just glanced at the different brackets you mentioned.
