You'll quickly discover that "less is more" when it comes to our style...
I love the simplicity of this monogram invitation I found on etsy. It's classy and sweet.
The colors and print of this invitation are very inspiring. These are the colors I want to go for! I also like the print.
I love the simplicity of this invitation with the names in script. I don't care of the color of the invitation, but I do like the text.
I like this invitation for the same reason as the invitation above - the script print. I also like the landscape orientation and flash of color on this one.The scalloped edges are cute too!
Again, it's all about simplicity for me! I like the orientation and classy-ness of this invite. I don't care for the script print, it's a little hard to read so I would avoid that.
Now for the tough part - deciding what you need to say on the invitation!
A good invitation should include all of the party details: Who, What, When, Where, and What time!
Here are a few examples of wedding invitation words:
Mr. & Mrs. (Brides Parents)
Along with Mr. & Mrs. (Grooms Parents)
Invite you to celebrate
The marriage of their children
(Bride first & middle name)
(Groom first & middle name)
