Finally getting round to posting this: first vector draft in one of the proposed colour palettes. I played around with extending a couple of the strokes, but I went against adding extra flourishes in the end (partially because the two capital letters will also need to work alone as a relatively contained element).
Should be getting client feedback soon but in the meantime, I'm noting things to fix/refine. In particular, there's something about the middle 'e' that seems slightly off and the main diagonal of 'S' is a little weird. Let me know if you see anything else that needs improving - full b&w version.

Hi Josh, thank you!
Great first draft Claire. I think you're right the middle e isn't right, I think it just be a little large
looks just amazing! you took the best one! really love those ends of the e's, S and v.
I'm no one to correct you, but I just noticed that all letters (except "the" in the middle) seem to be seperated except the "a in Date", do you tried how it looks with the "a" from Save?
You're right Niall, it might mainly be the size - it is huge compared to the 'th'! Well spotted, thank you.
Beautiful work as always! Things i notice after staring at it for several minutes:
1. Bottom of the S is a little wonky, along with the bottom of the top loop of the S.
2. i think the only thing with that central 'e' is that it's slightly large in comparison to 'th'.
3. Bottom of that loop on the D is a little wonky.
4. it is the most beautiful thing i've seen on dribbble today.
Yes(!), you went with that one. It's goooorgeous, Claire!
Show more... I crave... for more!
Daniel, thank you for the thoughtful comments! You know I realized the same about the 'a' and couldn't decide if it worked or not ('the' is also connected but it doesn't feel the same since it's small). I do like that it creates variety with the first 'a', but I'll see how it looks separated - cheers!
You make it look so easy!
Really beautiful Claire! Love it!
Wow. Saving whatever date you tell me :) Great work.
Love the colors on this one. The "the" portion looks really great - you love ligatures :) Cheers!
@Nathan - thanks very much for the detailed feedback. Ouch, yea you're absolutely right about the bottom of 'S' and 'D', jumps out now! As for the middle 'e', I think you and Niall are right: resizing it should go a long way to fixing it. (Extra thanks for point #4 too!)
@Emir - It's great when you get to go with the best version :D I've already got some really good feedback to work with, so will get started on an update! (I do always try to remember to post more..)
@Jed - Haha, thanks for the compliment!
@Abdallah - Thank you very much!
@Ced - Ha, good to hear! Thanks a lot.
@Joe - Yeah this was my favourite colour palette too. Can't get enough of drawing logos with "the" in them! Thanks very much.
Amazing all around your color scheme is awesome always
You have impeccable knack for color! I fall in love with the positive and negative space of your letters every time.
Thanks very much Neil. I used to hate having to work with colours and made a point of improving, so I really appreciate hearing that.
Sean, thank you! I'm really glad you noticed that about the negative space; I always try to pay particular attention to the shapes of the counters and space in between letters - good to hear it pays off!
Awesome, Claire, supremely clean, just beautiful.
Posted like this, it looks like you're announcing your own wedding Claire! Where's the party? :)
Love it! Those swirly terminals are the business.
