    I like your cutesy poem!

    Our was
    Side by side we'll be partners in life.
    Under palm trees swaying, We'll become Man and Wife...

    I agree with Christine to re-word the "happy news" bit. That is usually what people say when they are expecting IMO.

    A graphic or photo would be a nice touch. See what your ferret assistant can come up with!

    i dont like the happy news part either, sounds like you had a baby or got a puppy.

    but, i do think they need a flourish or palm tree or something, like a watermark in the background. a flourish or fancy palm tree if formal, or something like a paisley or more cartooney star fish if more casual.

    also, the part about having their closest loved ones there, isn't that like a kick in the shins to great aunt margaret who wanted to go but didn't think her walker would make it on the cobbly streets of mexico? ok i thought that one out way too much, but kwim??

    other than that, i do love the blue-ish color, but it needs some pink like your logo!! that would rock!

    Yeah, but when Great Aunt Margaret publicly announced that I was out of the will, I quit caring what she thought.

    And yes, I know what you mean, but my mom didn't want it to seem like we eloped, and somehow "the people we like more than you" didn't seem right either.
