And More (above left) 
This multicolor marbled design greets guests when they open your invitation, a fluid pattern that channels the upcoming ceremony on the water. For a minimal, modern look, Paper Envy embossed the names of the couple with a bold ampersand, while the wedding details are presented in sans-serif font.

Shades of Blue (above right)
Personal details emerge the moment the silver-lined envelope is opened. Mint & Lovely incorporates the couple’s last name with oversized script on the opaque vellum overlay, nodding to the wedding’s hashtag. Below, the simple white invite lettered in blue awaits. Throughout the suite, block fonts complement the subtle shades, with the table number printed assertively on soft blue paper.

Fine Vines (above left) 
A day in the botanical gardens inspired this charming invitation suite from the Crafty Peach. The couple’s large-scale initials and the fête’s table numbers sprout leaves, like a vine-covered tree. Details are printed in contemporary fonts in earthy shades of green and blue.

Copper Tones (above right)
This custom design by Bay View Printing Co. mixes blush, burgundy and metallic copper throughout the suite. The floral overlay in deep hues is an elegant flourish, contrasting with the simple block lettering of the invitation. The coppery border of the RSVP, table number and place card neatly ties it all together.
