The traditional wedding invitation has a long and rich history. The tissue, the double envelope, the wording all have stories that began long ago—stories which are the foundation of the customs we use today.
In the 18th century a paper invitation was reserved for aristocrats and people of high society. Now, as it did then, the invitation announces the celebration of one of the most important events in our lives. It is not only a statement but the first impression your guests will have of your special day.
At Formally Modern Tuxedo, you will be able to leaf through our books and have a choice of over 2000 different invitations from companies like: Soft Creek Hills (www.mcphersons.com/products.html) Birchcraft (www. yourinvitationplace.com/ formallymodern) and Carlson Craft (http://www.free.cceasy.com). Whether you want your paper to be an ivory vellum or a cotton fiber, raised printing or engraved, contemporary or traditional we have something for you. If you want an invitation that is as elegant as your bridal gown choose one from the new Monique Lhuillier collection, designer of the finest wedding gowns. Each invitation was inspired by her beautiful fashions using the finest papers, ribbons and printing.
In order to get some ideas, feel free to take a look at styles on line, however because colors can vary and there is a wide variety of paper stocks we suggest you then come in to look at the actual invitations in our showroom.
