With luxurious details, this invitation suite is sure to be fun for family and friends to unseal. Using copper foil accents and letterpress details, these Pink Champagne Paper pieces showcase premium design elements. While a winter event was planned for this couple, the marble details are an excellent choice year-round, customized to fit your personality and taste.

A fresh design for a timeless event—that’s what inspired Pink Champagne Paper owner/designer Kelly Medanich to create this custom suite, complete with watercolor envelope liner. A whimsical script highlights the couple’s names, and the dark floral background adds an unexpected twist to an otherwise classic piece. Guests were surely enchanted when they opened the invitation, a lovely introduction to the romantic theme of the couple’s winter wedding.

Adding some dark, dramatic elements to your wedding day theme? Jamie Foster, owner of Scripted Ever After, did just that with her take on a traditional invitation suite with modern touches. Each of her pieces are created with the couple’s specific vision in mind. This suite features a laser-cut black acrylic invitation with white script and a sheer vellum RSVP card, all packaged in a handsome black box.

This minimal, refined suite would be at home at both black-tie and more casual affairs. La Rue Pulido, owner of Little Carabao Studio, stuck with a simple, modern approach, focusing on brush calligraphy details. Scripted names flow effortlessly on smooth cardstock, while a hand-drawn floral pattern adorns the liner. Handmade black ribbon ties the pieces together, enhancing the sophisticated details.
