Black & White

We love these black and white wedding invitations. We specifically adore how the white lettering pops against the black paper. This bride chose to add vintage stamps and a floral insert inside the envelope for a beautiful contrast of color.

Brush Letters

Using watercolors for your invitations is elegant and modern. If you feel comfortable with using your own handwriting, this would be a great DIY project. This bride chose gold paint to write addresses on light pink envelopes for a delicate look.

This bride chose to have her invites complete with black ink on mauve envelopes. Her calligrapher went with over-sized font for the names while using smaller print for the addresses -- a unique contrast. She also chose vintage stamps to finish the piece.
