The wedding invitation process went a little something like this:
- picked a local design company to work with
- pinned invitations that I liked on my wedding board
- got incredibly overwhelmed with all of the invitation options
- picked out one idea
- went the completely opposite way in the next meeting
- debated on end about what to do
There are SO MANY options when it comes to wedding invitations. It's unreal. I think that I said "I don't know!" the most during this part of the planning process.
I have been working with print and typography since high school and have been exposed to so many cool things. I wanted to do them all. Every single one of them. But you get one wedding invitation design, not a thousand, so I had to somehow figure out a way to narrow down the options.
In the end, it came down to this: the designer showed me an invitation suite that they had just completed and I fell in love with it. I was sold as soon as I saw it... you know, once I made a few tweaks to it to make it our own invitation.

{sorry for all of the blurring & the boxes! but for privacy, I'm keeping full names/addresses off the internets ;)}
I wanted something unique and elegant while maintaining a very traditional style. Our invitations turned out just like that and even better than I could have ever imagined!

Our invitation suite was simple: one outer grey envelope with a pale pink lining, invitation, reply card, and a white reply envelope. No inner envelopes, no fancy band around all of the elements, no pocket folder things, no ribbon, nothing. Just simple & classy which is exactly what we wanted.

The invitation itself is on a thick, navy blue paper stock and we picked a not-super-shiny silver foil to foil stamp the invitation with. And yes, I loved my invitation enough to snag a picture or two with it during my bridal portraits.
