After recapping some of our favorite playful and colorful wedding invitations of 2017, it’s time to turn our attention to the best understated and romantic wedding invitations of the year! Prepare yourself for some seriously stunning calligraphy, gorgeous textures, and beautiful details galore!
These French Chateau-inspired wedding invitations by Brandi Smyth Photography and Paperglaze Calligraphy were easily some of the most romantic wedding invitations of the year. That calligraphed envelope liner! The hand torn edges! So beautiful.
A neutral color palette gives you the freedom to explore lots of different textures! I love, love, love the combination of traditional type selections with letterpress printing, a textured envelope, and white wax seal in these refined modern neutral letterpress wedding invitations from Bourne Paper Co.
So many gorgeous details in these romantic copper foil wedding invitations from Samantha and Whitney of Gus & Ruby Letterpress! The modern copper foil “dip” on the main invitation, the sweet illustrated florals, and the incredible copper foil frames for the stamps on the envelope!
A big YES to everything happening in these vintage-meets-modern floral wedding invitations from Atheneum Creative!
Meghan from 200 Spring wanted her wedding invitations to be an experience, so she created a gorgeous trifold invitation wrapped in vellum with a wax seal. The crisp white backdrop is the perfect canvas for her romantic gray calligraphy!
