I don’t think it looks "too cold" – are you using pocketfolds or just a flat invite?  I think a flat invite is very clean and classic-looking and there’s nothing wrong with that!  I saw some Knottie bio where the invite was ivory cardstock with black thermography but then they kind of bundled their inserts and invites with a belly band and a colored envelope and it looked super-cute.  I’ll try to find it for you and PM you. 

I was going to use MyGatsby (so nice that you can basically design everything you want) but they didn’t have a specific graphic that I wanted to use.  But I ordered samples from them and thought they were good.  Good luck!

I also looked at MyGatsby for invitations because the price is right.  I agree with Emilie01 that a belly band in a paper design you love could really liven up an invitation. 

We ended up using a wax seal and metallic cardstock to spruce it up and make it unique. pic here

You might also consider printing with different color inks.  I silkscreened metallic gold inks for some reception stuff and it really made it different.  Good luck!

Have you tried http://www.weddingdivas.com?  They have some great designs and are reasonably priced.  You can also request samples.  We just bought our invitations from them and their customer service is great.

I was originally going to go through mygatsby for my invitations however decided to cut the cost even more and have mine printed locally. I got some great deals online for my envelopment pocket folds and envelopes. I ordered my paper from paperandmore.com and then had them printed AND cut at Office Max for next to nothing! I did order the Scotch ATG from mygastby.com for assembling the invitation layers. I think if you go with a nice pearlescent paper it really adds a luxury feel even with flat lazer printing!
