I found a white invitation on pearlized paper white wax paper and a Monogram over it, tied on the side with a ribbon. I also found an invite on thicker, more substantial paper with a silver glitter border and I am undecided. my issue with the ribbon invite is it needs assembly and the paper feels thinner Plus the reception card is plain white shimmer paper. The glitter one I worry may be too jazzy for some people’s taste (someone mentioned Sweet 16) but I like that the reception card haa the same glitter border. Pix below – what do you think?

@RS521: I personally hate getting glitter in the mail, whether it’s a card, an invitation, etc., so my vote is for the one with a ribbon.

@RS521: Glitter depends…I’ve seen glitter paper where the glitter doesn’t come off which is fantastic. The glitter that gets all over everything is a pain – my friends jokingly refer to it as ‘glitter herpes’ (easy to get, easy to spread, impossible to get rid of).

I have a strong anti-glitter policy. Once our work used gitter covered Christmas cards and I swear that stuff was all over everything…for months. If you do opt for the glitter option make sure it doesn’t transfer or shed.
Can you keep looking? It sounds like you aren’t 100% sold on either of them.

@RS521: Is it actually glitter, that flakes off and makes a mess? Then no, this would look more sweet 16. If it is embossing, which is sealed with heat and doesn’t come off, then yes, this will look polished and fancy. I am making our invites and they will have ribbon, embossing, eyelets and translucent white paper on top of sturdy paper.

@RS521: I vote ribbon. I think its more sophisticated anyhow, plus glitter over everything BLOWS and I loathe it!
Perhaps you sould add a poll? 🙂

I LOVE the ribbon! My invitations also had a ribbon, and I think they are so elegant.

Thanks it’s sturdy glitter that doesn’t come off – decisions decisions I think we may be leaning toward the ribbon though!
