My friend Crystal had a very formal and traditional wedding in Washinton, DC this summer. She and her husband were wed in a traditional Catholic Church and then we proceeded to an elegant reception at the historical Willard Hotel downtown. Below you can see her formal invitation, which was letterpressed in black on off white heavy card stock. The invitation set the tone for the ceremony and reception. Guests weren’t quite in black tie, but it was certainly formal – just what the couple wanted.
Other examples of gorgeous paper are their programs, menus and favor tags.
