My friend had black invites and she used a silver  paint like ink, they looked really cool. I don’t know what your colors are, but you could always go with a gold, or something like that?

I used white cardstock as a label on my black envelopes – It was a nice layered look:

Wrap around labels could work depending on your design. Or you could get your stamp but I’d suggest using maybe a metallic stamp pad because if the white stamping isn’t completely opaque it’ll look dirty.

I used wrap around labels and they looked amazing.

We’re using a custom stamp for our rsvps, but our envelopes are white, so I don’t know how well the light ink/dark paper will work.  If you’re thinking labels like the 3 inch by 1 inch ones, and you’re not happy with the look, you should consider wrap around labels.  We’re using them for our burgundy outer envelopes.  I know some people frown on anything computer printed, but I think these look so sleek and chic, and my handwritting is a total mess, so I just say if it’s good enough for Martha, then it’s good enough for me!

I had dark gray envelopes, and used a metalic silver calligraphy pen with a felt tip. It worked really well – actually surprisingly well.

I was going to suggest those calligraphy paint pens as well.
