Are you just talking about a very basic black & white/ecru invite?  I have a flourish on mine but it’s black type on cream cardstock, backed with black linen cardstock.  Very basic, simple, and to-the-point.  I think there’s something very classic and elegant about that look.  I’m sure your invitations will be lovely!

I’m traditional too – although there’s lot of beautiful, creative invites out there, I really wanted something classic and simple so we’re doing a white card with a silver border.

I used to work at Papyrus and their prices weren’t horrible. Crane’s makes a lot of tradition invitations- I would check them out. If you do have a local Papyrus I would check it out

FINALLY close to a decision here on the invites — and in the end, I think I’m going with what you’re all described, and I LOVE it; it was staring me in the face the whole time:  beautiful, heavy stock cream (it’s Crane’s white) Crane card, it’s really large with black ink; beautiful assortment of fonts.  Just one envelope, lined in their white moire (looks like silk of white grosgrain).  It’s so elegant that I wonder what took me so long to figure it out! We’re doing black tie optional (I know, I know; we’re not supposed to say this on the invite, but I have a lot of “international” folks coming and they have no clue what to wear even for a Sat. nite wedding in NYC).  The wedding is basically white on white; BMs in black, so the invites make sense after all.  They were just more expensive than I thought.  So what else is new?
