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 think I fhttp://www.cigarjamaica.com/ound what you're looking for: 
    • My parents divorced quite recently, just few years ago after being rather unhappily married for 26 years. My mom caught him cheating. I got engaged a few months ago and a month later with little notice my father married the woman who he was with when my mom caught him. I live in a different country so only met her and her family a few times, they were very nice to me, my father is very happy. I am polite / neutral with her. On the contrary my mom is not doing great at all, she is still in a complete breakdown and a month after engagement she made a scene that she does not want my father at my wedding and hang up on me. When she found out i speak to his new partner she refused to talk to me ever again. It’s been a couple of month now, i tried to reach out but she blocked me. My mom is not really a very reasonable type, i try to take care of her and cheer her up but I cant just sit and talk to her peacefully, it is always a drama when it comes to my father. My grandparents are on her side. I mentioned to my father that i will not be inviting his wife as i don’t feel comfortable making the whole situation much worse and also because i really dont know her well to which he said that he may not be coming then. What do I do about it? It looks like it maybe the case that neither of my parents will come or if my father comes with his wife i may never be able to fix the relationship with my mother....
    • I'm so excited to finally, after 9 years, getting married again!  He's so amazing and we want to have an amazing wedding in Jamaica next year.  Allow me to introduce myself:  I am Katherine,  his grandchildren will call me KitKat! who is marrying a minister that truly leaves me speechless at times the way he loves and cares for me.  Professionally, I am a destination wedding planner/travel agent/award-winning floral designer, so this wedding will be my ENCORE.  Last night, we started out with 50 guests, relatively the larger size of most destination weddings.  Then our guest list grew to 100.  Right! My team right now, does have a contact in Jamaica, that I'm already working with. We are working on the budget, constantly.  The plan is to have all of the details together before Thanksgiving holiday, so that family and friends can prepare to start booking.
