#1 is boring, #2 has too much going on for my taste. I say keep looking but if it has to be between these two then #1.

I wouldn’t worry about your invitations matching the theme and scheme of your wedding… The will be spaced so far apart no one will even notice. If you want them to flow than I understand, I just don’t want you to put unecessary pressure on yourself, :).

I strongly dislike #1, although it does fit the image you’ve described. It’s just so… Boring. I’ve also seen that template time and time again with pre packaged invitations you can get at box stores…

I lvoe floral patterns, just not on invitations so I guess I’m not a fan of either of these, :(. Sorry.

Of these two, I prefer #1 since it’s closer to the look of a simple, understated, traditional engraved invitation. It’s simple and elegant to me, not “plain.”

I prefer #1. I like the simple clean elegance of it. #2 is too busy and I dont like the flowers

I disagree with a PP who said not to worry about your invites matching the scheme of the wedding– while it doesn’t have to be an identical match, it should give guests a taste of what’s to come in terms of theme and formality. 1 is a bit plain, and 2 doesn’t fit the elegant vibe you described.

I chose an invitation suite from Minted, but I also got samples from Wedding Paper Divas and Shine. All of the samples I received were of great quality. WPD and Minted had a larger selection of paper/cardstocks of varying thickness, but Shine’s matte paper was comparable to Minted’s signature paper and Shine’s shimmer paper was actually better/thicker than Minted’s pearlescent.

Please feel free to reach out if you have other questions about sample quality from any of the aforementioned companies!

Is #1 letterpressed from Minted?  If so, definitely that one!  I got one of those samples from Minted and loved how it felt!

#1 is very plain. #2 is ok, but you don’t know your colors yet. Why do you need invites before choosing your colors? Invites are typically sent out 6 weeks before.

christina82 :  Some great advice that I received when I was designing my own invitations, was that the invitation sets the tone for the event, and gives your guests a clue as to what the vibe of the wedding will be. 

 

We wanted a very relaxed wedding, and when I asked my friend what she thought of the invitations (before we sent them out) she said she was surprised because they were more formal than what she thought I would go for. 

 

I think they’re both beautiful, and if you like them that’s the most important thing, but to me, invitation #1 reads as more formal and sophisticated, while invitation #2 reads as a little more fun and authentic. 

 

Hope that helps!
