Ok, so here's my input. I love the color scheme you chose. Now for the invites... I love the layouts you chose with the monogram. As is, I must say that I agree with those who suggested a thinner ribbon and that 3 is best. As others have said, it might also look good with a paper ribbon instead of satin.

i just looked at it again and i have an idea you haven't tried yet but might work well. what about taking the ribbon one, and then also doing a ribbon horizontally at the top so the square sits on top of the ribbon
I was also totally thinking that a horizontal ribbon might look great as well, and saw it was a suggestion already!! I like to visualize things before I suggest them, so I quickly tried it in paint, and I still like the idea. How I like it best is with option 2 and a narrow ribbon going through the middle of the monogram box (with everything else placed as is). Wow, this is lengthy, sorry!! Just wanted to share my input  Grin

I was thinking about this while I was shopping... I want to add more color or texture. But since this is a wedding... someone had said a textured paper ribbon. How about a gold ribbon?

I also really like that idea of the little box on top of the ribbon. Or you could make a little slice on either side and run the ribbon behind the monogram box.

Or a little gold edge on the paper?

Definitely rocking the ribbon. The other two feel like they're missing something, sort of empty. The brown of the ribbon is so... chocolatey and edible. Love it.

I like the ribbon one, but I'll second the ideas of going a tad thinner or maybe using paper ribbon.

I really like all three. They are very unlike any wedding invitations I have seen in "real life".

Just a little grammatical thing....the year written out should be "two thousand nine" and not "two thousand AND nine"....am I correct?

Two or three.  With the idea that the ribbon should be different in some way.  I like the concept, but not the outcome as it lays.

Good luck!  Love the colors!

I am in the minority, but I really like #2 best.  It is much more balanced.  If you go with #3, I think the ribbon should be narrower.  Smiley

For me, number three.

I think the ribbon balances the text & monogram.
