Formal Black and Ivory Wedding Invitations
The epitome of elegance and class, formal black and ivory wedding invitations are popularly used for traditional weddings. A cursive, raised font in black printed on an ivory cardstock is a common choice for a traditional look and is usually carried through to the rest of the wedding stationery such as the RSVP, Direction and Thank You cards for cohesion.
Give your traditional black and ivory wedding invitations a contemporary look by opting for a classic, embossed monogram at the top of the invite along with a satin finish border.
