    One of the easiest ways to present your invites with a classy twist would be to use an invitation box, either in a paper quality or in clear PVC. The former style leaves a sense of mystery whereas the clear box lets you peak at the contents inside and offers excitement. You can include fancy tissue paper to add a layer of mystery, building up anticipation. Some even opt to add a ribbon band or even a customised printed belly band too. The decision is yours - a sample arrangement of the various styles you're thinking of having laid out side by side in its entirety will help you make a more informed decision.

    Ribbons, buckles, specialty paper, cluster brooches and other embellishments are other great ways to spruce up a wedding invite. The choice of ribbon (type, colour, texture and size) and the placement matters. Put together a few samples in different styles and collaborations with buckles or brooches to assess which works better.

    Bring specialty paper into the loop by playing with layers. Since there are many paper qualities available for the cards it's always a good idea to have samples sent to you to find the best type of specialty paper that will go with the colour, texture and look of the paper used in the invite. When you have selected layered wedding invitations, you can select the number of layers and how you plan on mixing the types of papers as well as whether you want to add a ribbon accessory in between a layer too.

    Hand lettering Designs : This means to say lettering that looks like handwriting or even, drawings that look like it's been written. It's quite the rage and looks lovely when finished. What most brides are opting to do is choose printed wedding invitations designs that make for an affordable invitation option.

    Bold Colours and Contrasts: Colour, colour, colour; it's all about colour! You will find this goes hand in hand with hand lettering and also illustrations with pops of colour whilst the colour of the paper is often white for that stark contrasting effect.

    Woodland Accents: If it was ever the time for the world to be eco friendly, it's now. Choose recycled paper (of the PCW paper variety or otherwise) for your wedding invites and match it with woodland designs and effects such as with bark designs or illustrations too.

    Embellishments: For the traditional brides and grooms who do not favour too much contrasts and pops of colour, and lean more towards quality paper stock, trims and embellishments, you will find it's your year with ribbons, buckles, clusters and appliqués being much in favour.
