More Wedding Invitation Ideas

I’ve been playing around with that oak bracket pattern some more and came up with three different invite design ideas (yes, those are fake names).

I still feel like they are too plain. Probably because I can’t visualize the letterpress texture. I’ll try a vertical layout or some more variations of the oak pattern. What do you think?

Design A: Outline on White

Design B: White on Yellow

Design C: Yellow on White

At least I have a lot of time to experiment!

    I’m torn between the white on yellow and the yellow on white. If you are feeling like they are too plain maybe play with the thickness/thinness of the oak? Or, make one part of the leaf have a bit more detail than the others. Or just use a different font for your names. They are all beautiful.

    No question, white on yellow. It’s gorgeous! I want to be invited just for the pretty invitation. Actually, it all sounds really amazing!

    Maybe you could emboss the oak leaves or do something that contrasts like matte background and glossy for the design. I like the yellow background with the white design.

    WHITE ON YELLOW for sure!!!

    White on Yellow is my first choice.

    However, I like the last one but with the script also in yellow. I’ve seen this before in MSL and it looks so good. I don’t know but maybe it would be cheaper being a two-color job too?

    Option C is wonderful. Text on white is so much easier to read but the bold yellow of the design carries the motif. The third is my vote (from a recent bride who dealt with bitching that text on color was too hard to read.)

    Gorgeous nonetheless.

    love the white on yellow, but keep in mind that it can be harder to print white on colored paper than colored printing on white paper.

    and letterpress’ 3-d quality makes everything look fancier, but if you think they’re too plain just try adding some more pattern – maybe you want to go full border with text in the middle?
