20 Prettiest Wedding Invitations

With emailing and text messaging running the world of correspondence, there’s a much higher appreciation that goes along with receiving a formally addressed piece of snail mail. That’s especially true for wedding invitations. Your wedding invite is the first glimpse your guests get into your wedding style, so delight them with a couple unexpected elements like personalized stamps or brightly colored envelopes—they’ll be excited to check “yes” on the RSVP card before they’ve even opened the envelope.

  1. 1. Rosy Red

    A bouquet of red roses is a beautiful way to show your love. Why not include this romantic flower and its bold hue in your invitations? This striking presentation sets the tone for a polished garden celebration.

    Saying “I do” in the big city? Give guests a sneak peek of
    the party spot and generate
    excitement with a custom
    watercolor invitation backer—imagine pulling this out of an envelope.

    Rugged stationery informs
    guests of your one-of-a-kind
    wedding style. We love that the text of
    the invitation is swirled into a jagged, circular pattern—mimicking the
    beauty of a geode. (Finish the suite off with customized stamps.)

    If the southwest is your wedding destination, choose a symbol or motif from the region, like this
    playful cactus illustration. A mix of graphic
    and elegant typography elevates the suite,
    making it perfect for any formality, from
    hacienda to casual ranch party.

  6. 6. Sea Breeze

    20 Prettiest Wedding Invitations

    Pay tribute to your wedding locale with a beach-inspired paper suite. A custom monogram, coral edging and gold details indicate this is not your typical shore party. We especially love the octopus motif—a nice alternative to the expected seashells.

  7. 7. Deep Hues

    20 Prettiest Wedding Invitations

    We have a soft spot for dramatic wedding invitations, and this plum one is no exception. Go bold with colors like navy, emerald and even black for a surprisingly elegant look. Add some lightness with a soft accent color that can be used for other pieces in your suite (reply card, directions).
