Let me start off by saying that I am insanely jealous.  Yes, I would do the invites and other things in the same design to match.  Just some ideas if I was as lucky as you:

napkin rings, escort cards, programs, placemats, votive covers, reception decor hanging from ceiling/trees(miss canary had a article about papercut http://www.weddingbee.com/2007/10/31/paper-cuts-2/ that had me trying to find them all over town), runners for tables 

The possiblities are endless.  Have fun and show us what you come up with.

I AM SO JEALOUS!!!!!

I’m a recent architecture graduate and wish so much that the office I work in had a laser cutter.  I used one many times in college and there was so much you can do with it!!

Immediately I thought of these wedding invitations I have seen many places:

Can you replicate a piece of lace or a beaded motif from your gown, and use this as a design element for your paper items?  I think that would be lovely.  You might also look at MS Weddings – there was a spread about using eyelet.

What a great tool!

Use it for EVERYTHING!  Those pics you posted look amazing and I’ve always thought cutouts looked "fancy".

Oslo Press is the site I had thought of above, and now that I write I see that’s in the link name.  🙂

Just wanted to say that you need to be careful about burn marks as well on the paper.  If you haven’t used a laser cutter much you need to make sure that the intensity is set very low for paper or else you’ll fill the whole place with smoke and turn your paper brown.
