Hi everyone! I’m still narrowing down my stationary, and I need some help. I’m looking for something fun, but still classy and neutral. There will be live music hot jazz) and awesome dancing (I’m a lindy hop instructor) Here is my wedding pinterest board:
I’ve got three general options for stationary, and I would pick the escorts cards, thank you notes, and save the dates based on my choices here. For sets 1 and 2, I’d go with simple tea-stained tag escort cards and photo card save the dates and thank you notes. For set 3, I’d pick something more old-timey and fun for the rest.
Set 1: Fred and Ginger style Dinner Club
Set 2: Railroad Ticket Style
Set 3: Simple, classic, vintage:

Thanks so much!

Hi again! 🙂 This post works much better, and I think you’ll get much more love now! I looked through your pinterest board, and my instinct is that you’re going for a clean vintage look. That being said, I love all 3 designs, but am drawn the most to the classic vintage of Set 3. I myself prefer things to be simple, though, so I might be biased! Sets 1 and 2 come across to me as a little too wordy for my taste. Hope that helps! 🙂

I like the simplicity of #3. After peeking through your pinterest board, I agree that it looks like you like clean lines.
The graphics are overwhelming to me in the first one. Not a fan of the pointing hands, and different types of text layouts – diagonal! arched! Lots of fonts! Seems loud and in your face.
I like the train tickets, but still prefer #3. I would maybe order a sample of 2 and 3 and see if one feels better to you.

Those railroad ones are different and I like them best! =)

Love the 3rd one. I can’t pinpoint why – it’s just extremely visually appealing and seems to have the classy and neutral look you’re going for.

I don’t like how busy the first set seem… and I don’t like the crooked printing on the last (even though they’re clean and pretty, the slant is driving me nuts for some reason) I love how the railroad ones kind of combine the two, they’re neat and clean, and unique!

A little extra information: our venue is an historic hotel literally *at* an amtrak station. People have rented antique trains to take them up from the city, and I’ll be having guests go right from the airplane tot he train up the Hudson River. So the train ones are exceedinly appropriate!
But also, we’ll be having a 1930s style band (either New Orleans Jazz or Gypsy Jazz, we’re betwee two) and since my fiance and I are dancers, we’re basically the entertainment (people are expecting big things). That makes me feel like the old movie/vaudeville/dinner club/jazz club playbill would be appropiate. My goal is also to look as much like Ginger Rogers as is possible.
Though, the men will be in suits, not black tie.
But I’m also worried that everything at my wedding will be *too* neutral, clean, and simple. I want to havea pop of something, since I don’t have any major color or graphic elements besides peach roses. I’m also going to have some vintage treasures (basically, I’m taking my apartment to my wedding) like pictures of my great-great aunts in the 20s, my dad when he was a kid, my grandmother’s wedding, etc.
I know that invites are one little detail that people probably won’t remember, but… you know. Things. 🙂

Thank you @emthebrave, that’s so sweet! I’m pretty excited about it 🙂
Also, there will be a cheese table. 🙂

The first ones are too theme-y to me. They seem more like party invites. I really like the third ones though!

I went with #2. I think those really tie in to your theme especially since the venue is at an Amtrak Station.
