very cute..i'd recommend moving the bottom part up a bit so its not cut off..and maybe even considering another color for the inner circle so the turtle and your initials are more visible...otherwise, GREAT job!!

So cute! My two suggestions 1. Instead of having Bayahibe 2013 straight across I would try and see how it looks rounded to fit the shape or the circle. And 2. Try and mess around the the transparency of the dark background and turtle if you make it like 45% your names will stick out much more! Overall nice job love the colors!

I agree with the ladies above!! The text on the bottom is cut off so you definitely want to do something about that! And transparency will help to make the initials POP!

Thanks for the advice guys! I did lower the transparency of the background a bit, but you're right, I could do with lowering it some more. I also tried rounding the text but to no avail... can anyone shed any light on how to do it? Thanks again!!

How about this one? Think I might have made it worse lol.

Any ideas? Should I lower the transparency of the turtle even more? This is harder than it looks!

i think the new one is better than the first one, but I think you should make your initials larger. the ampersand isn't getting married, you are! :-)

 

In the end, it's your vision, and you should follow your gut and just have fun playing around with it. If you're getting frustrated, come back to it after a few days. That usually works for me.

Great point! It's like that because initially we were originally going to put our surname initial in the centre but it just didn't look right. Will have another play around. I really appreciate your comments. Sometimes you've looked at something for so long it's hard to step back and notice things that are obvious to third parties.

    • I’m getting married next May at the Azul Sensatori  in Cancun, I believe they have a hotel specific DJ. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on that versus spending money for an outside vendor and if so any recommendations on a good DJ in that area? Thanks for the help.
    • I admire brave brides. I'm generally afraid of a wedding. Breaking outdated rules is cool. You're good😇
    • My wedding date is set for the next April. The ceremony will be held on the beach too. I chose a dress style but not sure about the accessories like a crown and the need for a warm cape. The open back wedding dresses https://www.cathytelle.com/category/wedding-dresses/?filter_back=open&query_type_back=or  help me to choose, please! I like the third dress just with the location on the beach, like I'm dreaming about. In case of bad weather, I need to pick up a cape, so where can I find it? Only a new thing will fit, cause my grany is very superstitious (( I will be grateful for the web-addresses of jewelry shop with good reputation
    • Hello, I'm looking to have feedback about decorations for your wedding at Barcelo Maya Palace. We are getting married in Dec 2020, and I tried to get info from WC for what it's included as decoration for mint breeze or Straberry Package. It seems to be normal to pay extra for everything, but before to go further, i would like to now what basically come included?? I'm looking to know what is included for table decorations (center, if it's looking the same on when you go at a restaurant a la carte, table sheet white or colored), huppa for beach wedding (white or color), deco for chair, etc? Did you had to pay an extra to bring your own decorations? Did you pay an extra to have your reception in a beach restaurant? And what about a beach reception? Are the lights are included ?your help will be really appreciated!    Thank you
