The first impression of your wedding that your guests will experience is from your invitations. No pressure or anything, but they need to be perfect! Besides having the information and times correct, the overall appearance and theme need to exude the effect you are trying to achieve. Whether it is simple and modern or elegant and classic, be sure to keep it consistent throughout the invitation. Here are some fun new ideas to help you:
The sophistcated, pressed calligraphy on this invitation says “elegant” to me. A new trend that will satisfy the OCD brides is an envelope folder. Your guests will appreciate the organization of wedding facts.
This bold invite shouts “fun” and “classic” as it is inspired by vintage concert posters. It does show a modern side as it is an uncommon style to use. Another important aspect to note is the size – 4.25″ X 5.5″ and the 3.5″ X 5″ RSVP will help you save on postage!

Bonus Tip: Cathy McNamara, wedding guru of 25 years, suggests assigning a number to each guest and penciling it in on the back of their RSVP – often times guests forget to write in their names. This will help in the long run when it comes time for place cards and master seating.
