#443: #1 or #2?

no, not that kind.

****************************************

i'm kind of really loving april right now for these two Loverly invitation designs. you know she's all sorts of awesome because the only criteria i gave her were my three words, this picture, and the fact that i like cursive.

and she created these beauties.

#1:



#2:



which would you choose?


p.s. i don't plan to include the above rsvp return cards. it will most likely just be a separate card with instructions to rsvp online and hotel info for our out-of-towners.

p.p.s. a real conversation:

me: oh...one thing i noticed...the first word is spelled incorrectly.

april: the repondez?...i double checked the spelling...i must be missing it...

an hour later.

me: i'm a complete loser. i totally thought it was supposed to be reSpondez.

april: no problem. have a great day!

moral of the story? she's really nice. and i don't know any french. mai oui!

THey are both gorgeous, but my vote goes for #2.

I didn't know that it was "repondez" either. oops :)

numero uno!

I would say #2! I love the tree in the first though..

Linda said...

I love #2!

Katie said...

#1 is my vote! #2 is a more common design that I have seen around, so while it is super cute, I think #1 is more unique.

Have fun with it, whichever you choose!

I love number 2 - the color and design feel a bit less intense and I love that color so much! Nice choices.

Bethany said...

i think #1 is aaaaammazing stunning. especially in comparison to #2

Skeeta said...

OMG they r both beautiful and unique! Go by color- Which is going to be the accent color at your wedding?- use that one! (But I do love the teal, its used less than the pink )

PurpleLime said...

Love them! I think 1 is more bold and simple, 2 is more romantic. I like number 2 best myself.

I always thought it was respondez too so you're not the only one...

Amber said...

ooh number 1 is the bestest. wow, turns out my high school level french is also a pile of crap.

Jen said...

Another vote for #1!

Amy said...

i love the design--it's so clean! i like #2 a little better, but both are lovely.

Kristen said...

I like 2 the best but I think that's mostly because that color is just fantastic. It's gorgeous.

Logan said...

i like no. 1. i think it incorporates your inspiration the best.

#2

Ashley said...

#2, #2!!!!

Ruthie said...

They are both lovely, but I like number 2 better. It may be because fuchsia isn't really my color.

LaVerte said...

I am voting for #1 after looking at your picture and words...

Steph said...

I love them both but based on the inspiration pic, I'd say #1. I really like #2 and love the teal but I wish it used more pink.

Also, I think you mean "maiS oui" (mai means May) :)

Meg said...

#2!

m+b said...

I vote for #2! Love it!

lisa said...

love #1

jessica lynn said...

isnt april lovely!? she designed my invitations! i love both of your choices!

Heather from the bar said...

Either one would be amazing! The only thing drawing me to number 1 is the color, it is awesome!

Lauren said...

I was going to compliment the designer on her French knowledge... she even got the accent on the "plait"! And I vote for #2. It's gorgeous.

talda said...

they are both wonderful, what a great dilemma to have. my vote is for #2!

I am jumping up and down with enthusiasm for #1!

diana said...

I say No 2 too! I love it!

An Atlanta Bride said...

#1. definately.

Steph is right. (Francophiles, rejoice!) Mais oui means "but of course!" Say it in your best Louis Jourdan/Maurice Chevalier voice.
