Question Opinions Please!!

My sister is getting married and needs Save the Dates. Her wedding color is primarily red but the bouquets are going to also have Real Red and Apricot Appeal Roses and Lovely lilac flowers and Green Galore Berries. I was thinking of incorperating these colors in the Save the Dates but decided to go with a more clean simply but stylish look.

Now my problem is neither her nor I can decide on which one we like the best. I tried to ask my husband and the groom to be and they are split and so are the parents. So I thought I would get your opinions on it.

TIA
Shannon

They both are beautiful but I think the one with the hearts just adds that little something to the card! Very nice!

Love them both, but the heart adds so much more and balances the red ribbon.

I like the one with the hearts the best! The hearts complete it. I liked the one with out the hearts but then when I saw the hearts added, it just completed the card. Beautiful job!

They are both great! The one without the hearts is crisp and clean looking ...
but... the one with the hearts has that extra punch!

i think it is a 'cleaner' look with out the hearts!
plus- the 'facts' are standing alone! not to get lost in the design!
just my opinion!

Although the one with the hearts is very pretty, the one without the hearts is much classier. Both are pretty. Just my opinion

I like the one without--classier and more elegant. Depends on which look you are going for!

I like them both, but the one without the hearts, in my opinion is the more elegant and appealing choice. The hearts are nice, but borders on visual clutter and does detract from the message on the card.

I voted for without - but really - both are lovely! Sort of depends on the look you want - clean, uncluttered, simply elegant -- or something with a little more pizazz!

We are debating on changing it to We're getting married. I would be able to make the font a little bigger if we did.

I also thought about just tying the ribbon at the top and putting all the wording below the ribbon. Maybe I should have made a sample like that huh?

I like the one with the hearts... perhaps try stamping it off once for a more subtle look though? They are both beautiful!

I agree stamping off might be the solution - I like the heart but it's a bit distracting from the words so I voted for the one without the heart.

I agree. I like the one with the hearts better . . . but maybe it should be a shade lighter so as to stand more in the background than be distracting to the eye.

I see that I am in the minority, but I really like the simple, clean, no heart look. I think it is not plain, but just plain pretty!!!

I voted without because it looks great that way (although both are pretty). I liked the suggestion of "we're" instead of we are and might I make one other tiny suggestion? If you change it to "we're", I would not increase the font size just because you have less letters and more room. Otherwise, that line would be very similar in size to the people's names which competes for your attention. I think their names should be the most prominent part. JMO.

I like it without the hearts better...but maybe it's the actual heart image...Do you have one that is elgeant nice outline? I like what it adds to the layout, but agree that the other is "cleaner" looking.

DH and I both like the one with the hearts better, though both are lovely. DH and I both thought if the hearts were stamped off that would let the text stand out more.

I think I like the hearts one more because the hearts balance the ribbon and also the text; a suggestion for the simply elegant one might be to change the three lines that start with"Please save the date" to a smaller size and narrow the margins for that section as well, to create a little more contrast and not compete with the happy couple's names.

Both are beautiful; please let us know which one gets selected. Or if you can't decide, make half one way and half the other!

I voted "without the heart". I think it is a cleaner look and easier to read. I'd like the hearts if the ribbon was much smaller. JMHO

With the hearts, and stamped off first for a softer look. What color is the text? Maybe incorporate one of the wedding colors as a text color? Your design is very romantic. Lucky sister and BIL
