Here are three wedding invitations I’ve received lately that I thought were absolutely lovely:

This invitation is my favorite money-saving invitation and for my friend Margaret’s wedding in Las Vegas. The wedding will be held at the Lakeside Weddings reception facility. Margaret and her fiance Nathan have done a fantastic job of planning an elegant wedding at a low cost, so I’ll definitely be writing a post about it when I get back!

I spoke with Margaret about the invitation last week and she said after an engagement photo shoot, they took their favorite picture and added text using photoshop. This way, they only had to print out 4×6 copies of the picture (with text) and then assemble the invitations. What a great way to save money! I can’t wait for this wedding 🙂

This is the invitation for Chase & Kristie’s wedding that I attended last week in Roswell, GA. I love how the invitation coordinates with the wedding. The back of the invitation had a beautiful watermark and even the back of the invitation had the green and brown floral design.

This is my favorite invitation of the year! I haven’t double checked with my friend Emily yet, but I’m guessing her sister (who is an artist) painted the invitation and matching reply card. The wedding is going to be a ceremony at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy, where Emily & Riley met and attended college, with a backyard reception at Emily’s aunt’s house right on the Connecticut coastline!
